Question for you.... Wife just finished watching Deadwood....
She started on channel 550, and I noticed that the video in blacks was clipped heavily..
So I looked at the schedule, and noticed channel 186 was HBO HD....
Changed to that, and blacks were just as clipped and detail-less as channel 550.
Could it be that Comcast is changing video into RGB colorspace and clipping the hell out of it? I used to work at a place that did HD Film Transfers, and if anybody clipped video that severly, they'd surely be fired!!!
Can others confirm or deny?
I know it's not the Display (other channels in YUV colorspace don't clip, even that same crosspoint, I just checked.)....
Or is it a possibility that the box component outputs are poor?
Display is Mitsubishi 62525
Box is Motorola 6200/2005 vintage
YUV analog at 720p is the interconnect.
Problem follows HBO, not other SD & HD Channels....
Also, just checked, other SD & HD channels are not clipped heavily as HBO is.... So that rules out box's Component outputs being bad....
