It must be your imagination, Directv broadcasts a digital signal with a lot of error correction capability. After any required error correction is applied, what you see is 100% identical to what Directv broadcasts to everyone. If it falls below the threshold where error correction can make it 100%, you'll see obvious visual artifacts. With only a small bit of further degradation you'll see no picture at all. Same story as with digital signals for OTA broadcasts and digital cable.

Yep. There is no difference in picture quality. There might be a diference in signal quality however.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.
