    Considering that it's an SD channel and what I've watch there is usually old, grainy B&W stuff, it's ok for me

    [SIZE=medium]Hi Paul, I have checked FETV (channel 82) here in the DISH offices and for an SD picture it shows a good picture. What type of receiver are you using? I check the picture on the Hopper w/Sling and our 722k HD DVR. Please reset your receiver and check the channel again to make sure the picture is playing more clearly.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]Thanks[/SIZE]

    This thread got me to check out FETV for myself. Other than the old grainy programs it's just like any other SD channel. I did experience some audio sync issues, but it was just one old program, the commercials were in sync.

    From subsequent comments, it sounds like your beef may be with FETV as opposed to DISH.

    There's an infomercial on as I type and it looks pretty stable.

    [SIZE=medium]I was checking in to see if you’re having an issue with the picture on FETV. What type of cables are you using to connect the 722k to the TV?[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]Press the buttons of; Menu/6/1/1 and select Check Switch and then Test. After all test complete, exit out of all menus and allow the 722k to reacquire the signal and download the guide. If you’re still having the issue, please PM me with the phone number on the account.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]Thanks[/SIZE]

    FETV looks find for me. What kind of TV dio you use? So maybe of the less expensive LCDs I have seen look great in HD, but poor in SD. I still have a CRT and they both look good here.

    Don't know how long they've been doing it, but in the last few days, I've noticed some old B&W movies from the 30s and 40s

    In 2008 we purchased a SHAP AQAUS 1080I set and the HD channels are very good.

    Even the TVs that do well with HD, often do not down convert well for SD.

    Of all of the OTA sub channels that run the old shows, Antenna TV would be my favorite. In the future I am hoping these type services with start to stream to the Roku. On another group, METV was looking into it I read.
