Is that now true on both the eastern and western arc's? IIRC EA was better because it used MPEG4 for all the SD channels were WA was on MPEG2 and was about on par with DIRECTV's SD channels.
SD might be better, but at least based on someone I know on EA, not convinced it would be worth it. He had to have two dishes for domestic channels, and at one point Dish moved our locals to a satellite that couldn't be seen by either dish. I'll take bad SD over that.

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ
AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

The old subscription to DIRECTV makes one omniscient and expert in everything ploy.
Am I an expert on display technology and calibration? Yes. You're welcome.
