Noticed more noise and less crispness from the The Golf Channel HD coverage on Thursday. CBS takes over Sat-Sun after today's TGC coverage, so curious if this slight but noticeable PQ degradation improves with a different delivery path. No blocking artifacts here: (NYC's TWC to a 64" @8' 1080i CRT RPTV). DVRed about 5 minutes Thursday for a CBS comparison. The noise is most apparent in wide shots of greens; it's hazy/humid in Maryland, but that's a separate PQ loss (with the longest shots). -- John

Friday's Versus/Golf HD images from Maryland seemed okay, without the noise/resolution problems of Thursday--on my setup. Not sure if the overcast sky on Friday, versus Thursday's full sunlight, played a role. Effective resolution was diminished Friday, as you'd expect, from the reduced light, but the irritating noise was gone. -- John

As expected, after Friday's viewing of The Golf Channel (TGC), with normal images, CBS on Saturday seemed okay, too. Apparently Thursday's TGC broadcast of the AT&T National had a technical glitch along the path. -- John
