So, I just recently finished a new home theater room in our new house. In my previous home I had a home theater room with a 104" diagonal in the 16:9 portion of the screen and an Epson 8350 projector. I had DirecTV and felt that the picture quality was absolutely outstanding. Fast forward 2 years to present day, I've now finished my home theater room in a brand new house and the new screen is slightly bigger at 126" diagonal. I now have a Sony VPLHW40ES projector and decided to go with Dish Network for satellite tv instead of DirecTV. I hooked up the Hopper receiver to my system a couple days ago and was instantly depressed in seeing the picture quality. At first I was afraid the difference might be the projectors, or possibly the screen causing the artifacts I was seeing. But as I switched the input material between the Satellite TV, Netflix streaming, Xbox One, and Blu-ray dvd's I noticed that it was only the satellite TV that looked poor. Everything else was tack sharp. So, now I'm just trying to figure out if there is really a decrease in quality between DirecTV and Dish, or if perhaps my screen is just too large and is exposing the compression artifacts of satellite. It's somewhat difficult to explain what i'm seeing in the picture, but I'll do my best. Overall the picture just looks soft. The hi-def detail that I was used to seeing is lost. In programming that has a lot of on-screen graphics (like sporting events) I can see what appears to be compression artifacts around the on screen logos, sports ticker, scoreboard graphic, etc. If anyone has any thoughts on this I'd love to hear them. I love the Hopper interface and Dish in general, but what I'm experiencing picture wise is truly disappointing.
