I've now had HDTV via Time Warner cable here in Greensboro NC for a couple of weeks and I'm pretty happy, but there's one thing...

The HDTV Demo channel is super--smooth pans, ultra-sharp definition of details. Quite what I was hoping for.

But.........the downside is the two movie channels....

The HBO movies almost always stutter or jitter during a pan--it seems as if the frame rate is about half (15 per second) what it should be and the image stammers across the screen like ABS braking does with a car. Also, the images are softer, less sharp than the Demo channel. Why is this?

I'm not mentioning the Showtime HDTV channels because they are almost always unwatchable--wrong aspect ratio for my widescreen TV and generally fuzzy.

Thanks for any answers...
