Is there a way to remove those ridiculous bottom banners on the channels?

A lot. I'm sure it is not Blu-ray, but it is good enough. Besides, content is king.

You can have a whole lot of crap, but it is still crap. SD looks like crap on my TV

I watch dish HD, blu-ray and as a last resort dish SD channels but it looks horrid. I can occasionally find dvd's that don't look too bad but even a lot of those look bad on a big hdtv. I have tried some of the moviepass HD streaming options and they are OK but definitely not as good as blu-ray(or even as good as some of the HD channels).

With Movie Pass, you will have both HD and SD content available. I prefer watching HD and I usually will bypass any SD content. I have a 47" LED TV with my TV settings optimize to give me the best possible picture. Some SD content does look bad. Thanks.

I have had issues getting the HD moviepass content to stream with my 2Mbs DSL connection. I think the issue is with the 722 as I have to reset my router and then reset my dish broadband connection at least once sometimes more to get the movies to download. I have had no picture quality issues with the HD movies I have gotten to stream but just getting them is a pain in the butt. On my 60" tv SD material looks horrible so I try to avoid it like the plague.
