And on that note, I recorded Dick Clark off DISH, OTA and watched from OTA direct to the set. And there was a definite difference.

DISH: Lots of motion blur and something I'm going to call motion fog from the crowd moving, the LED screens and the fog that they pump in the air to catch the lighting. Caused a kinda "digiatal/blocked" haze at times.

OTA through the STB: The PQ was a lot better. The blacks were darker, more crisp and just more dynamic. The chroma was hotter and clean. No "motion fog, blur, anything". And the audio was a lot more dynamic.

OTA Direct: Not as a dynamically better than STB OTA, for the first time. It was a tad cleaner and crisper, but overall, a lot closer to the STB OTA.

Just saw a number that had the backdrop screens going nutz, the artists in the foreground jumping and moving all over, and off the dish it was a mess. Off STB via OTA a lot less, off OTA Direct - NOTHING. Crystal clear.

I can't wait to get the RFBD from my buddies in LA to compare this all with the raw feed.

But there was a difference between Sat and OTA that brought to mind a lot of the things that people here are saying they as seeing.

"If security guards had a party, would they invite anyone?" I just thought of that joke when I saw seven cops dancing with my guests (and neighbors, so they couldn't have called them). Oh, it was probably that shell I shot off the top of the roof. Oh, well looks like every ones having fun.
