1st off hello every1. i just got my voom installed 3 days ago. the installer kinda didnt kno much what he was doing but he got it all in werking order, he installed the satallite and i installed the reciever LOL... anyways so far im still a little dissappointed in the HD :( . i own a 50" panasonic lcd TV and i've watched a dvd that were more clear then the HD programming? isnt HDTV suppose to be 6x greater then dvd? or is their commecial wronge?
Also do diffrent HD shows come in diffrent modes like 1080i or 720i and does it auto adjust it? Other then that the Voom still wins over cable but dont kno if its all what its cut out to be.

If your using the DVI cable which should have came with your equipment you will get the best picture. On the front of the Voom, right side there is a fold down door with a red button pushing the button will change picture resolution.
