ESPN Full Court Freeview--PQ still horrific eh?replacement
Posted 18 January 2009 - 06:13 PM
I came home to see that not only were both channels "blacked out" and not available....the handy Game Search picked up the FC channel (721?) and recorded it....and I was amazed how horrific the PQ looked. I actually recorded this "game" on a 50" RPTV and a 37" LCD...and both pictures looked horrific off of the GP channels (both recorded on HR21's).
-Has the PQ been this bad all year? I haven't subbed to FC in 3-4 years...but as I said I'm a Sports Pak sub...so I'm aware of how "bad" the PQ can be on these RSN channels on various sports broadcasts...but this was horrible. Dark, sepia-ish...on BOTH TV'S/set up's I recorded it on
-Does Full Court only show the games on the FC channels...meaning if I'm a SportsPak sub I have to watch/record it off the FC channels...with the RSN's themselves being "dark"/unavailable? As an MLB EI sub, I always record off the RSN's (ie. STO is 662/662-1 and I record off of those channels) vs the MLBEI channels...and the games are "there" when I tune in.
-As a Verizon DSL sub I believe I have access to the ESPN360 broadcasts...but I can never seem to watch a full game without glitching/hiccups/loss of connection (which I'm guessing is because my DSL connection is subpar)---I just couldn't believe how bad the D*/ESPN PQ was for the Tennessee-SC game I recorded last night.
1 HR20/3 HR21's/1 HR22/1 AM21/3 R15's /5LNB/3LNB/single LNB dishes...and a large utility bill!!!

As for the RSN being blacked-out, I don't believe that subbing to FC has any effect on it. If the game is not blacked-out you can still watch it on either the RSN or FC, at times I have seen a problem with FC being blacked-out because the game was on the RSN - THAT really ticked me off after paying so much for FC!
