Still with the 8300HD? Those things just don't seem powerful enough to both decode an HD signal and run a program guide, let alone do anything else. It's one reason why I switched to TiVo. The TiVo Premiere I have with CV has none of those problems; it was a night and day difference as far as stability of the picture goes. I swear the PQ seemed better after I got it too, although that could have just been psychological.
But now I'm just having consistent PQ issues on most channels (not stability; no dropouts or stutters or anything, just consistently ugly picture quality, at least to my eyes). I'm trying to test OTA right now to compare and make sure it's not my imagination, but I'm not getting a good signal with my old Radio Shack passive antenna. May need to buy a new powered one.
I'm thinking to call CV anyway because somehow NBC is consistently the worst looking channel and it also cuts over to an SD sports channel randomly. I guess it could be either my equipment or my line; maybe they can run a test.
I had FiOS a few years ago and couldn't really notice the PQ difference at that time, but I have a feeling I would now.Edited by badasscat - 12/2/12 at 6:26pm
