I just got a new HR44 Genie activated this morning. Love the speed. The picture quality isn't blowing me away however. The Genie replaced an HR22 and HR24 both of which produced an outstanding picture on our Sony TV. Extremely sharp with brilliant colors. I always marveled at how good a picture we were receiving in HD. The HR44 picture seems to be somewhat muted if that would describe it. The colors are not brilliant, and the HD quality seems soft instead of sharp. Maybe I have missed a setting somewhere along the line. It's a good picture, just not something to write home about. The TV reports that it is receiving 1080i from the Genie, so it's not a resolution settings thing. Anyone else see this?
