Anyone using a HS10 with Dish's model 6000 receiver for HDTV programs ?

My Dish 6023U will be arriving this week and I am hoping that I will not have any problems integrating the 6023u with the model 6000. Does it show a 16:9 image. Please post your success stories.

Thanks,

-Jai

no problems watching HD. just make sure you select the right output from the menu in the dish receiver. if you select the wrong one you will need to use the svideo or composite connection to correct.

jgiboney... are you using it with a HS10 and are you getting a full 16:9 image and at what resolution ?

Thanks,

You'll be able to specify 16:9 or 4:3 both with or without vertical compression on your Dish 6000

You can akso specify 1080i or 720p as your output

Just remember you can only use the VGA in on your X1 for HDTV

but the 6000 outputs HDTV both thru component or VGA

I just use a vga cable to connect

You can also specify 16:9 4:3 or native on your X1

When you get it just play around till you get what you want !

Since the hs-10 has panels that match the resolution of 720p, it would seem logical to select this as the output format of the dish 6000. Recently, however, I've been questioning the wisdom of this assumption. Since most hdtv is 1080i, by selecting 720p output, the 6000 is performing a 1080i to 720p conversion. Conversely, by selecting 1080i output, the 6000 is passing most hdtv without performing a conversion, but the hs-10 is eventually converting the 1080i to 720p to match it's panels. The question then becomes, which device perfoms this conversion better?

So to rephrase your question Paul, which has a better deinterlacer and scaler, HS10 or model 6000 ? Something worth investigating .... have you tried an A/B of this ?

Thanks,

Someone posted on another thread that a 1080i to 720p conversion is done by interpreting 1080i as 540p and then interpolating the 540p to 720p. This is a bit dismaying since it means that on all 1080i hdtv, we are only seeing 540 vertical lines of resolution. This would also mean that there is no deinterlacing involved in the conversion, just scaling. I wouldn't doubt that the 6000 does this, but I wonder if the hs-10 also operates this way. I would hope that the hs-10 deinterlaces the 1080i and then scales the 1080p to 720p, preserving the vertical resolution.

This past weekend I switched my dish 6000 to do 720P and the pictured looked ok but it looked better passing through as 1080i. Also I noticed when switching to pass through mode while using 720P the picture looked better untill I zoomed it back out to make it larger. I am using a 102 inch diagonal screen.

jgiboney,

If what you describe is the case, then the scaler and deinterlacer of the HS10 seems to be better than the model 6000. It will take at least 2 weeks before I setup my system and evaluate it. I welcome more inputs.

Thanks,
