WOW, thats all i have to say. I got my NEW Comcast HD DVR and package installed yesterday (as i posted before it was getting installed soon) and All I have to Say Is.... AMAZING. The funniest thing is my wife usually couldn't care about HD vs SDTV and when i decided to switch she wasn't supportive (she doesn't care about HDTV). But the funniest thing happened last night we were watching Tv and she had the remote and she said wow these tv channels look great, they are so clear 9non HD locals) and before she even hit the HD shows complimented on how great the cable looked compared to what we had before, then i said let me see the remote and switched to HD locals and she was floored, its the first time i actually got her to admit HD was better and that It looked better. She even commented on how the colors were more bright and vivid and that the channels looked clear while switching between them and that HDTV (we watched the new movie Th Wild, a kids cartoon and it was really amazing), the DTV PQ varied so much each channel was different with muddy colors, pixleation and washed out colors, unlike comcast where each channel looked high res and each was similar and they got better in hd but overall its 2x better all around channel to channel and blows dtv out of the water
The PQ is outstanding, i previously had DTV with HD (no locals due to having to pay over 600 to upgrade to mpeg4) which looked good (at least i thought) but once i viewed Comcast HD i was Blown away. The PQ is so much) better than the DTV service i was getting, Dtv had 480i output with a poor upscaler which did upscale to 480p on non HD, but with the new motorola Comcast box its out put in TRUE 480p and 1080i which to my surprise is so much clearer and more detailed. All the channels look great on Comcast where on Dtv they went from good HD to poor locals which had alot of pixilation and blocky ness most the time esp in cloudy weather. The crystal clear pics are amazing as well as Awesome HD on demand, All the BS satellite pushes about 100% digital and better than cable is so funny, Comcast has 2X the resolution an PQ IMO, i am so glad i signed up and switched, best of all no contracts no equiptment to buy and 1 yr locked price for all 3 (phone, broadband and HD cable). Anyone that is thinking about switching can be assured you wont be disappointed.
