Like I posted earlier, in the screenshots on the first couple pages I just see no difference. On the zoomed in ones just above, yea sure, I see a difference. Which was part of my (failed obviously) point. If I sit 2 feet from the screen sure I see macroblocking. I even see that on OTA HD. But sitting back 10 feet I just don't see the "hd-lite" on D* that others see. But then perhaps it's my bad eyes and my "tiny" 43" screen. I also don't have E* and have never seen E* HD in action (I don't know anybody with E*) and that's why I never claim D* is better then E* or the other way around, I don't have a way to compare with my own eyes.
All I'm saying is that sure, a lot of the guys here on this forum are videophiles where 60" screens a tiny. Thus they are picky and we all know the bigger the screen the easier you'll see any artifacts and blocking. But Joe Sixpack doesn't have those 100" projectors and just sits back and enjoys the movie or American Idol. Unless the artifacts are really, really noticeable on a less then 60" screen they just aren't going to notice. Anyway, these arguements are always doomed to "yes it is! no it's not!" so perhaps it's time to lurk on the thread once again...
