There has been a big difference in PQ from one playoff site to the next.
The games in Chcago looked bad, very grainy and fuzzy, like looking through
a glass pane coated with milk residue. The PQ from Houston was excellent,
as good as it gets from FOX. And in all the WS games, there was no vacillating
between HD and upconverted SD like there was in all the playoff games.
As to DD5.1, it has varied from one night to another.
Two nights ago, it was unstable, dropping in and out. Other nights it's been Ok.
However, I'm not the best person to judge, as normally I have only the two rear channels
connected, this because if the DD is working right, you don't hear the announcers voices
in the rear channels, only the sounds of the game. I do this so I don't have to hear Tim McCarver, I can't stand his commentary. Still, I heard changes in the rear
channels which verifies your observation .
