This simply wouldn't happen.
I've been dealing with video compression since the early 90's, I'm telling you 100%, that's exactly what's on the screen, without a doubt at all.
Unfortunately, this issue is only getting worse, they are taking many MPEG2 sources that are 18-22 Megabits and knocking them down to 8-12.
What's worse, is some providers are using MPEG4 now, but the MPEG4 sources are taken from the already highly compressed MPEG2 signals.
Had they taken them from the uncompressed MPEG2, the issue wouldn't be near as apparent.
