Hey there NH guys. I'm in Connecticut, and just had HDNet, HDNet Movies, INHD, and INHD2 activated in the past few days. We've had ESPN-HD for over a month here, but have no NESN-HD. Oh, and obviously I have Adelphia. I have noticed that with the addition of new HD channels, each channel's picture quality has been degrated. I'm talking pixelexation that is very obvious when there is quick motion, or changing of scenes or cameras during sports games. I wanted to know if you guys in NH are having this problem too, or it it's just a problem with my local system here in CT. Thanks guys.
You know, funny you should mention this. I think I do see a lot more digital "oddities". In fact, something I noticed tonight during "8 Simple Rules" (which had sync'ed
audio!) is that just before commercials, when the screen goes black for a second, I could see a bunch of black cubes making up the screen. I never remember seeing that before.
Are they running out of bandwidth so soon? If I add all the HD movie channels like HBO & Showtime, will my PQ degrade further? I never thought there'd be a flip-side to getting more HD channels.
Oh yeah, regarding Todd's question about pricing, I think the offices are independent. As I mention above, in my town, HD is an extra $7.95 per month, and I think most of that is for the box. I already had "Extended Basic" but I don't know if that is required to get HD.
