It's a joke anyone would ever compare PQ of dish to directv, sorry. However no matter how much better mpeg 4 might look on directv in some cases, it's still far more prone to regular pixelation, audio drops, etc.
That is certainly your opinion -- and, obviously, it is shared by quite a few other posters.
But it isn't the ONLY opinion. It isn't even the only "informed" opinion, despite what you would lead us to believe.
I don't know what your "job" is that requires you to "work with all the available HD services" but I would disagree with your blanket statement. I have spent a lifetime in television control rooms. There are some Dish channels that seems crisper to me than DirecTV, but many seem comparable.
The Cox HD I have seen in the San Diego area seems better than either DBS offering, as does the FiOS i watched in Texas recently and the Comcast I saw a few months ago in Philadelphia.
