Which is why I provided that link.
I agree with you. See my post.
Yup....all on the same page now.
So when should we anticipate more HD channels to appear?
Peerhaps on November 17.
If so....we should be seeing Sixto "signs" soon (say that fast 3 times).
1440x1920 is only a video format used for some recording devices. Regardless how a program was filmed on video, network feeds themselves are either 1280x720 or 1920x1080. The actual ATSC standards are what matter here. The ATSC digital television standard for 1080i is defined as 1920x1080.
HD-Lite is the downsampling of an HD feed. All 1080i feeds received by Dish Network are 1920x1080. They choose to downsample them to 1440x1080, compress them to a greater degree than DirecTV, and ramp that bitrate down...all of which results in degraded PQ.
Now that we have settled that...back to anticipating.
!280x720 is progressive, this 1440i is hogwash! Why we ever approved any interlaced standard in this day and age is beyond me. However, that's a topic for another day.
Perhaps one more try... :shrug:
Does care about what customers want:lol:
and i am enjoying BBC HD ,AMC HD, NATGW HD
and this coming from a fanboy!!! funny
Oh yeah, we have more PPVHD channels than you. :bang
Wanna trade? I’ll give ya 41 PPVHD channels for those 3 HD channels. :lol:
I already have them too..at least 2 of them (via TWC).
The 1080 is interlaced, where only half the pixels are shown (755k) where as 720p all 921k pixles are shown at once. That's why 1920 x 1080i is the HD format (1,037k pixels are shown at any given moment)
Nothing on any of those channels worth losing ESPNU, ESPNNEWS, DISNEY, ABC FAM, & full time HD RSN's
To each their own....
I'd swap ESPNU, ESPN News, Disney Channel, and full time HD-RSNs for AMC HD and BBC America HD in a heartbeat...
I know what your saying about it being interlaced, but the screen is drawn so fast, how can the human eye perceive a lesser quality image from 1440x1080 vs 704x480 (SD) ?
Even 3D looks pretty convincing, because each eye is blanked out so fast in the shutter glasses, that your brain just morphs them together. Also look at a light bulb. It's actually turning on and off 60 times a second due to 60 Hz AC wave. I bet it looks like a steady glow of light to your eyes, I know it does to mine.
