I just got voom installed yesterday and I'm a little disappointed in a few voom exclusive channels the monster, Kung fu, and Western channel are supposed to be HD ; but they look like im watching an old film. Before you say that's because they converted old movies to HD and that is wasn't shoot originally with an HD camera, I've seen Hogan's Heros in Hd from HD net and it did look like an HD movie. The only thing digital about the VOOM channels that i mentioned is the sound.

Please everyone who has voom share your opinions with me.

I also don't like the fact that I can't stretch my local CBS to fit my widescreen when it's not showing a HD program. I really don't like that Motorola box.

Try to make sure you are in 1080I or 720P it will help the pic quality some for the HD channels.
There are a couple of ways to do this. There is a little red button behind the cover on the front right of the STB. Push that till the top row of lights lite up and you will be in 1080. the next set of lites are 720p.

Thanks for the help. I noticed that some shows look better than others but mostly no better than DVD quality.
