Got Dish installed today - Hopper + 3 Joeys. Replaced DirecTV.
How come the picture quality is terrible - the HD on Dish is on par with what I used to see in SD on DTV and now obviously the SD channels are much worse. Reading up on some of the posts here, it seems like the quality should be equal if not better. The installer had no answers - said it might be the receiver. But I get the same PQ in every room. Any idea as to what might be wrong?
This probably won't help but I have to ask.When you turn to an HD channel in the guide is there a transparent "HD" behind the channel number you select?.If you are watching a "HD" channel and you bring up INFO,when you press INFO twice does it tell you it's satellite 129?.There are "HD" channels on the other satellites but 129 is the main "HD" satellite.
It sounds like the installer hooked it up with Composite hookups,but if it's hooked up with HDMI you should try another HDMI cable.It also sounds like your installer was in a hurry so you should show you appreciation by calling the install company to come back out to fix your system for free and if they won't contact DISH and tell them your problems with the install,like it looks like crap?.Good Luck!
