What is wrong with the picture of the channels for the French Open? The mix channels are in HD and when you select the Match you want to see it is supposed to be in HD also, but it isn't :confused: At least it isn't in the early morning hours when I have had it on. The picture is so bad I don't even want to watch it so I turn it off and I don't know if it gets better later on or not?

I have not watched the French Open, but since all HD channels have SD duplicates, is it possible that when you tune to an individual match you are going to the SD channel instead of to the HD version?

Was just going to write something similar. Mine definitely go to the HD version of the appropriate channel. I am hiding SD duplicates, so maybe that is the difference?


PS, I noticed that my channels have "HD in them. For example, from the mix, selecting a channel sends me to a channel named "FOPHD", and my mix channel is "FOPXHD". Carolina, what are your channel labels in the banner?

The non-main network feeds are very soft. I can flip from 702 to 703 (HD) when the same match is on and see a noticeable difference in clarity.

At precisely 11:47:17 AM PDT on Tuesday, May 29, 2012 I am viewing the only match going, Williams-Razzano. My observations:

703 is horribly soft, though the specs say it's 720p.
702 is good, reasonable HD- it's also the Tennis Channel, 217.

I love that the mix channel is now HD!

My SD is hidden also, but those pictures on all the channels except the mix channel itself all look like SD to me! And they all say in the channel title they are HD, but they clearly are not :( I'm really disappointed normally D* does sports so well, but this French Open coverage is clearly not like D* at all!

Oh please have a better picture from Wimbledon! The French Open was just awful. I have never seen D* mess up on a sports event so badly until the FO!
