All files are nullstripped.

What does null stripping have to do with the presentation of still images?


The first two images are not the same frame. I didn't bother to check the others.

Frankly the frogs all look the same to me, or am I missing something?

My TV does 1366x768, so i'll just use the first one as reference, regardless of who i subscribe to.

I see you are still hell bent and totally hung up on this resolution thing



I take it you still dont understand the importance of the bit rates?


Well, Ive got some news for you..All our HDTVS are capable of supporting full bit rate HDTV..

I see you failed to realize all he compared was two different resolutions and spoke of nothing else. If there was a problem with that, direct it at the OP. He said nothing of bitrates.


If resolutions aren't the issue, then why do people besides me keep mentioning it. Bit*h at them for a while, and leave me alone.

I just switched from d* to E* yesterday and their is a huge difference with the picture quality. E* is much better. even the downrezzed voom channels look better than D* IMHO. The E* hd dvr also has better ota reception and the menu is about 100 times faster.

He posted the resolution AND the bit rate at the top of each screen cap... The OP should have made mention of bit rates in his title though, Ill agree with that.


Everyone keeps bringing up resolution because this is all they know..


They dont understand what the real problem is, and they probably never will..


All they know is that the resolution is lower than true 1080i..


Its like u said though, the resolution dosnet mean jack for most people becasue most people dont own a set that will resolve 1080i resolutions..Even if they do own a set that will resolve full 1080i, chances are they are using a STB that wont..Almost all STB's max out at 1400 or so lines of resolution..


Which bring us back to what is really making Directv look so bad, the bit rates..


By the way, no need to carry on and whine about getting picked or whatever..These forums are for big boys and girls, no crying allowed

damn i cant view any of these images. This image removed due to high-bandwidth usage. You can restore this image replacing it with a clickable thumbnail which uses less bandwidth Free image hosting at image shack. What the hell is this? Is there anyway around this? I was able to look at the pics briefly at my job

I admit when I was in cali when I first got my SXRD in Jan 06 coming back from a deployment the HD channels look like crab. But I didn't have time before getting stationed at Little Rock AFB to calibrate it. Since having it all hooked up since March. All the HD channels have been great I don't get the grain issue I had before I calibrated my system I use monster cables for my connections I am using HDMI for the HDDVR to the SXRD Fiber to the Surround. I have Monster Power Conditioner hooked up. Sorry it isn't looking good I guess it may be the difference in the equipment and house too. It ain't always about the signal although Bit-rate issue needs to be fixed. But of course their are some channels that don't shine as good as the other HD channels TNT, Discovery HDNET all look great on my SXRD. So you think you can dance off of my local Fox HD looks great but this past year like my favorite show 24 wasn't as good as I would like it to be. I watch the UNIT in HD on CBS and hell everything on CBS looks great in HD.

I wish there was an option for ISF calibration in my area, but there isnt, not that I know of..


Either way, E* looks pretty much outstanding without calibration



Even with calibration, its not going to make D* look better while E* stays the same..


Both are going to improve, with E* still blowing D*away

Yeah, I just couldn't understand why you were so pumped over a bunch of frogs. I want to see those pix!

So Monster + calibration was all it took?
