Ever since my local area stations switched to digital, the picture quality of the local networks has increased considerably, and it's a really nice picture. I have one issue though...and it's related to how Dish zooms in on the local channels HD 16x9 feeds to convert them to a 4x3 format.

The zooming in doesn't have any sort of anti aliasing, so fine lines (like those that appear in cartoons) appear jagged looking.

Would sending an email to the Dish PQ email address (dishquality@echostar.com) help to fix this issue?

Maybe - it can't hurt to ask, and they can't fix it if they don't know about it.
