    The text formatting on the C41s is very different from the text on my HR44. The PQ of video is the same, but all my menus look very different text-wise.

    I've noticed the same thing. The text/graphics are generated locally in the C41, so it's quite possible that they don't look as sharp as the HR44 equivalent. The video itself should be the same though.

    Winters,...
    Now that's just strange! I'd love to know what causes this- yours is the third or so mention of that phenom, and I know you aren't looking at the SD version etc.

    My C41 is on a much smaller screen, but maybe if I am looking for the diff. i will see it.... leaving.... BRB! tick, tick, tick,

    OK, back, but here I attribute the difference to the screen size, and darker room the C41 is in.

    Mystery continues.

    I've seen a couple of other posts saying the font is clearly different on the client.

    Thank you. And I agree...the video PQ is the same...but the text in the guide is not. It seems to me that the text sharpens up whenever it overlays full screen video....mini guide or info bar...whatever you call it.

    On my 106" screen projected from a C-41 the full screen guide has me reaching for my glasses...which i don't even own. It wasnt that way on the HR21 that it replaced.
