DiscoveryHD took a hit on PQ just before the Olympics in 2004, when added another channel per transponder. Hasn't been the same since. Ironic, since some of their highest-rated shows (American Choppers and Monster Garage), show alot of welding shots, which are hard on MEG2 encoders and tend to pixellate alot.
