The thread starter has an SD box and an SD TV set-not a Genie and an HDTV. And yes, there are a few (VERY few) programs on GSN that are recent and were filmed in HD but they are so few the channel itself is transmitted in SD.
The remark about the irony of two upcomming programs on GSN originally recorded in HD at the time of your post was just meant in fun ThomasM;
But anyway, your statement about the TS' setup is not totally correct. The TS actually has two HDTV's, a Sharp and a Vizio, connected to a D12 receiver via its S and composite video outputs.
And I know he doesn't have a Genie, but was still working with him to see if the issue he was seeing with the black bars with degraded PQ is on DIRECTV's end or his. Since if were on DIRECTV's side I should see it as well, Genie or not.
You stated above;
... And yes, there are a few (VERY few) programs on GSN that are recent and were filmed in HD but they are so few the channel itself is transmitted in SD.
Were you referring to only DIRECTV's transmission of GSN in SD?
Because I noticed another poster in the HD anticipation thread write that GSN actually does have an HD feed which is carried by some cable companies.
