Does anybody have any pixelation / motion issues with the 600ES? I was watching the super bowl today and got quite a bit of pixelation / blurring off and on. My set up is:
Dish Hopper (2m Straightwire SDMI HDMI cable) -> Krell S1200 U processor --> Sony VW600ES (Straight Wire 16M SMDI HDMI cable.
While the Sony Streamer (connected to HDMI 2 using the same 16m Straightwire Cable) and Oppo 105 (going through the Krell unit) look great, I am still not happy with my dish network results. I know they won't be the same quality, but my old Runco VX-1000c (720p) seemed to have better results with Dish Network than this unit. Any ideas what I could have done wrong in setting it up which could cause this? Should I change out the short HDMI going from Dish to the processor? Do cables cause pixelation? I currently have my dish box sitting on top of a line conditioner... could that cause this?
Please advise. Thanks!
It's hard to be certain w/o seeing it first-hand, but what you're describing could easily be signal quality issues: compression artifacts, dropped packets, etc. It could also be "Reality Creation" being turned up too high and/or the extra resolution exacerbating existing artifacts that you didn't notice with the 720p display.
Cables are very unlikely to be causing pixelation, and it's even more doubtful that the proximity of the dish box to the line conditioner is causing issues. Generally, if the cable is bad enough to cause issues, they are constant and quite perceptible. Given that your Oppo+Krell look great, I'm inclined to think that the higher resolution of the new display is bringing existing source material flaws into view... Last time I saw satellite content, compression artifacts were common enough to be distracting.
