    Anyone else noticing the AWFUL picture quality for the game tonight? TONS of blocking and pixelation! The HOF game looked alright a couple weeks back but this game looks just ugly. What went wrong?

    Looks good in Dallas. The bright sun & shade can be tough on cameras.

    I'm in Orlando visiting my sister-in-law. They do not have D* (they have Comcast), but we were viewing the game via OTA. The PQ via OTA was not good here.

    It's normal NBC BS. Everyone here has noticed it and commented, and Im on a TiVo HD and OTA. 1st QTR was bad, just pixellated smears.

    It looks fine to me as well. Even when they show slow motion, where it s typically easier to see problems.

    Better than in the past. Only real issue I see tonight is when they switch scenes with the huge peacock transition logo, the entire screen goes to a pixellated mess. They should never use graphics like that on a 1080i broadcast.

    Anyone notice the big guy #14, Joe Webb strut in for the TD late in the game(the rookie needs work on his post-TD celebratory dance). He looks promising indeed!

    NBC Universal's 1080i is absolutely terrible. You can see the same pixelation and blocking on their other channels in high motion scenes.

    Just curious if your local NBC station has any subchannels?

    Mine has 1 subchannel, but regardless, I've lived in 3 markets in 4 years (one without subchannels), and NBC is always bottom of the barrel on sports coverage. The CW HD Col Fball games tend to look better.

    Seems to be that way. My local NBC, WETM, is one of those mediocre-to-bad NBC broadcasters. But, on Wild Card Weekend this past Jan., there were all kinds of folks praising the NBC broadcasts over @ AVSForum. Maybe when Comcast takes over there will be some uniformity. Yeah...right.
