Wl1 I appreciate the effort you put in to help fellow strugglers with all the sometimes nearly mind-numbing array of ins-and-outs of input and output selections-options-choices and 'assigments' available and needed to be decided-selected in order to get these ever more complex receivers up and running these days....
When I read your response to mairj's original post as to which selection he should choose within 'picture settings' in order to upconvert the image from his "cable box" to something better looking using the 809's video processing power ...I was interested ..because I'm now setting up my 809 ...and of course I want to see what can be done with the now (pretty awful) quality (more accurately lack of quality) the 'standard' (satellite cable company non-upgraded) image provides... before considering perhaps paying them more money each month.
...to provide an HD image that I think they should already be sending out to all their paying customers...as a matter of course ...as the company that provides the 'quality' product compared to their competitors....after all..they already beam it out...they already have the satellites in place pumping it out, all the electronics, the broadcasters are making the HD programs...
...so I now pay them like 4/5 of a hundred bucks a month...for the honor of them providing me with an acknowledged INFERIOR image...
...where is the intelligence and wise business plan in that??? ...why a 'two-tier' (piss-poor and excellent) image quality sateliite image beaming company...??? ...just gather up and then beam out the VERY BEST image you possibly can to customers...and cut out all the other useless circuitry retained to beam out the sucky quality images...
THAT is the way to become known as a QUALITY satellite broadcasting company!
...but then, I'm not a bean counter...
(my apologies to all you good, consciencious accountants out there.. no offense meant to you..after all ..You do not work for a satellite cable company..right?..I hope?...)
...and By The Way ...if my little 809 can upconvert the sucky images ...why can't a big, powerful satellite owning-broadcasting cable company do that too ...AT THEIR END! ...so we all don't all have to try to do that down here with our little receivers...eh?
...but I digress... ...back to 'on topic' ...where was I..?
...ok ...so naturally I am interested to see what my 809 will do with the acknowledged unecessarily PISS-POOR SUCKY INFERIOR images the satellite company chooses to keep sending me...
...so hence my interest in mairj's question and your reply...
...but his question asked about a "cable box" ...and your reply talked about an "xbox"..
...did you know and realize that wl1?
(perhaps he had asked about an xbox as well in an earlier post that I did not see?)
...and for all I know...perhaps the 'custom' setting applies in both cases... but I just like to be clear as to what Exactly-Specifically is being spoken about ...with no room left for any possible confusion.
Thank you again for your time and efforts on our behalf.
That is all.
(except for my apologies for the rather rambling nature of this post)
Have fun everyone, all the best...have a great day!
