    Just tuned into recording, find that SD-Wash are in OT. But the picture is soft on this one, some angles are waaaay bad, suggesting a poor lens on top of over-compression. It's CBS KOVR out of Sacto.

    Now starting the Steelers-Pats, and it is a bit soft, but better than the previous game. Color tones, contrast are all right, but it's not a great picture.

    It was.
    Didn't watch in its entirety, but switched back/forth to it over the course of the game.
    The worst picture on a game that I've seen in awhile, none of the other (non PIT/NE) televised games were affected.
    I attribute the problem to the source... feed from the game to the uplink center, because I got/checked the game on local OTA, LIL, and DNS, and it was the same on all 3... checked to see if I could get a clear feed.
    Also, I'm an always-on CC guy, and the text was crystal clear simultaneously with the bad picture so it wasn't the broadcast to dish/set.

    Edit: Now that I think about it, the CC is a data stream (non-video) that wouldn't be affected... never mind... but the picture did suck.

    Watching on Sunday Ticket, the SD/Wash game looked like one of the main cameras was SD, picture seemed clearer in the first and third quarters than in the second and fourth. Unfortunately the end result of the game was quite clear. ^&*%^^ Chargers!

    I don't know if the Pitt/NE game feed was soft or not. However, what I do know is that Pittsburgh defense was VERY soft... :grin: As a long-suffering Browns' fan, that was nice to see.

    The PQ was also horrible on KFMB in San Diego. And the end result of the game was even worse :(

    Not as bad as the Packers' ending, not just losing the game, but losing Rogers for an unknown period. (fracture to collarbone). The latter worse than that loss.

    And Tampa failed to squelch the Shehawks. I cannot wait for their visit to the Stick! Bring it on!
