This is both a DVD and HD topic.


I set my DVR to record CHICAGO on Starz HD today. I sat down to watch it while it was recording and I was not overly impressed with the picture image. Then, I saw edge enhancement around Catherine Zeta-Jones when she was shown at a distance under the stage lights. So I popped in our DVD of CHICAGO and fast-forwarded it to the point the movie was playing on Starz, and then played them simultaneously so I could switch between the Cable TV and DVD inputs and compare the images. Lo and behold, the Starz "HD" broadcast was just the DVD being played - NO discernable difference at all. :confused: :mad:


I had never seen this before, because every other time I've watched Starz or HBO HD, it's DEFINITELY an HD image.

Not all movies in widescreen on Starz! HD are HD. Some are only widescreen upconverts. See their web site for details.


By the way, none of the national TV channels use DVD as a source. They use professional formats.
