Compare D* and E* PQ
Posted 24 August 2004 - 09:06 AM
It seems that for the Olympics E* has provided free of charge all of the NBC related channels ( CNBC, USA, Bravo). Thus I was able to do a comparison of both services on the same major network channel, both connected with S-video cable.
The best picture was very clearly Directv. Especially on a close-up of a person talking, the E* signal showed digital artifacts and just did not look smooth and natural around the mouth. The D* signal was as good as a perfect analog antenna signal with no sign of pixilization.
This makes me glad that I switched to D* for my major service, although I do applaud E* for providing WB and UPN which I would not be able to get any other way (except for a terrible cable signal).
