Ben - I have not compared the D* Tampa stations with BHN as I had been using the Atlanta market with my H20. Clearly, not an overall valid scientific comparison and I would not portray it as such.
However, with all the discussion of the D* local HD issues in every market except Detroit (from several not even using real HDTVs, lol - another subject), do you really feel the locals look better in Tampa with D* than BHN?
I have to assume Tampa has all the other issues in the D* MPEG4 that others are reporting, but have not heard it from anyone locally yet.
As I have a E* Vip211 coming tomorrow on my Atlanta Account, I might just move the D* back to Tampa and compare the 3. I want to actually compare D* to E* in Atlanta first though.
And, fwiw, before anyone else gets any other ideas - the Spotbeam on the Atlanta SD channels on D* is on the same transponder as Miami SD for D* - and Tampa is right in the middle of the two - so it doesn't work for SD on D* - regardless of the Spotbeam maps showing different.
