Come on Jeremy, if your signal is poor enough that you're losing too many bits you're not going to have excellent PQ!

OK, but you're talking about having a signal so bad that the FEC fails and the picture starts breaking up. You're just being difficult now, because I know that you know what I'm talking about.

Just looking for an explaination to why one guy sees the signal as unwatchable and another sees it as fine - other than one guy being a liar. Signal quality is a variable.

I think I've seen everything that is ever shown on MHD (since the whole channel is an endless loop) over at my girlfriend's apartment on Comcast cable. The PQ is poor - lots of blocks in dark areas. The picture is especially bad where there is a lot of movement.

That being the case I would guess that the problem is with the source and not the transmission method in this particular instance.
