What you see will be affected by your own monitor. As an example, in the threads the screenshot section I am running a 37" 1080p monitor. The DVD picture appears much, much larger than native resolution..so they look worse than normal....the 1080p shots appear smaller than real-size, so they will look as good as they possibly can. In those picture threads, assuming you are using a monitor at a rez greater than 480p, the DVD pics will take a visual hit.
And there is nothing wrong with the person's PC...they've been doing this for years now and other tech/review sites actually refer to some of his threads for information.
Anyhow, I didn't see the macroblocking that he references in the fire shot...
