I live in the western Mass area, just watched a great game on Local Fox, but the High Def is terrible compared to the second game on Local CBS, both are transmitted through DirecTV. Is there anything that I can do to get a better picture?
I saw no problems with the FOX transmission here in N.Y.C., but on the whole, CBS' picture does look better to me. I see that regardless of whether I'm viewing via DirecTV or OTA.

On the same display...
The FOX HD broadcast game was noticably lower in HD quality most of the time compared to the CBD HD broadcast. That is not always the case on regular season weekends.
But for this playoff weekend...on the CBS game...despite being an outdoor game...the contrast & color was better....almost all cameras were HD and in great focus.
On FOX....low contrast, weak colors, and obviously only 1/2 their cameras were HD.
One would think for a nationally-televised major sports event....FOX would have done things right with the HD broadcast...but they clearly didn't (pun intended).
Shame on FOX....Kudos on CBS.
