    SNY on 625 is still being broadcast at 720p.
    This channel should be 1080i.
    The duplicate on 683 is 1080i.
    Please fix this.

    I will bump everyday.

    Are you sure the two are duplicates? Because as far as I know D* doesn't change the resolution in anyway for the MPEG4 feeds.

    625 was spotbeamed until D10.
    683 appears to be that spotbeam now while 625 is the national channel.

    I saw 683 last night. Maybe it is gone now. If that is the case then there is even more reason to fix 625. Now there is nowhere to get the correct resolution.

    Correct resolution? Are you saying that SNY braodcasts in 1080i and D* is converting it to 720p? That doesn't make much sense. Or are you asking D* to broadcast it in 1080i regardless of what SNY braodcasts it in? That would make even less sense.

    The correct resolution is 1080i.
    The NYC area received 625 in HD since spring of this year.
    D* is sending it incorrectly I believe. Just as TBS HD was being sent wrong at first.

    agreed.... get this fixed. 625 has been beautiful all year long, whatever they did this week screwed it up on 625.

    There's no way to know what resolution the channel is actually broadcasting, only a presumption based on the duplicate programming on the two mentioned channels. The channels could be seperate (regional sports alternate) that were showing the same programs.
    For example in my area there's 640 and 668. Most of the time 668 is off air until two events need to be aired together. Sometimes though the feeds show the exact same programming.

    resolution is determined by broadcaster.... directv does not change that... action is typically shown better in 720p anyways... that's why espn shows 720p.....the satellite used has no affect on this either

    Thee mpeg4 spot beam of this channel that the NYC area has been receiving since spring is 1080i. The new national channel is 720p. Obviously one can not be correct.

    why? If it's being sent by the broadcaster physically different then they can send it however...do you KNOW it's physically the same exact feed from the broadcaster? if the two are physically seperate then it can be different... I see alot of ASSUMPTION in this thread

    I don't understand you.

    The NYC area has been receiving 625 on a spotbeam since before the baseball season started. This channel was shown on D* and the local cable systems as 1080i.

    Now channel 625 is being shown at 720p.
    Now channel 683 was added the same day as channel 625 switched to 720p. This channel 683 is 1080i.
    I can watch the new channel 683, but I am concerned those may be removed at some point.

    I am assuming nothing. Everyone was showing SNY HD as 1080i and now D* is not.
    They did the same with NESN HD. It should have been 1080i but D* was showing it at 720p.

    hhmm interesting... i just mean are we sure the broadcaster isn't literally using diff equipment... that's what i mean by different means in sending signal... literally diff equipment and literally another way of sending their signal... interesting... anything is possible... rare though that that happens... well if it is on directv im sure the broadcaster will make them aware of this.. if on directv they prob already know but good question ....

    The resolution on 625 HD is still incorrect.

    this is a bit ridiculous... i realize that now that baseball season (at least as far as SNY is concerned) is over there isn't much on SNY-HD, but come on.... this can't be hard to fix.

    When TBS HD had this issue, Earl sent it on to his contacts and the resolution was fixed. Hopefully, Earl is paying attention to this thread and can do the same for SNY HD.
