Problem with the quality of SD on new Hopper reciever
Posted 26 January 2013 - 03:09 PM
The SD channels should be the same aspect ratios on both arcs ... letterboxed on one should be letterboxed on the other. I am not aware of any channels that are cropped/letterboxed differently based on the arc.

I was just commenting the other day while trying to watch an ACC basketball game how one team was one color of blob and the other team was another color of blob... and it was hard to tell much of anything.
So... some channels are pretty bad in SD.

There is a limit of how far the dish can be away from the receiver ... which would also include the length of cable inside your home (dish to hub+hub to Hopper).
I will talk to the installer since the dish is not yet in the ground but on a stand about moving it past the problematic tree group. It would be about a 60-70' move. Do you know if Dish allows 'longer' placements like this besides the close to the home one. I'm sure it's more expensive in the wire but I'm sure they got plenty of it. Thanks for the help.
