    hi guys new to forum. Did a search but couldn't find anything recent.

    So I left DTv and went to dish and got the hopper 3. Hd picture looks pretty bad. Especially football and some other content on tv. Had dish come out they changed lmb and box. Still looks the same. Guy says it looks like what he has at home. Kept blaming the settings on my TV. But HD looked good on DTv. It's really grainy when camera is zoomed out. Even on the today show when they have graphics up look grainy at times to. I've seen other older post so it seems to be a problem. Am I being to picky.

    I have a Sony 65x930d

    Thanks

    You mean LNBF, but what is the "box" ? Model ?

    Yes I guess. The part on the end of the dish. And by the box I meant the hopper 3 receiver.

    1080i HD 16:9. That's what it says on my tv remote.

    looks good - PQ should be OK, perhaps your TV 1080i de-interlacing process if flawed ? Does the TV up-scaling to 4K too ?
    What is shown on TV screen ?

    What we are after is what channel (and whether you're watching the SD version or the HD version). SD will definately be a bit grainy, since the Hopper would be upscaling it to 1080i.

    Yes the channels are says they are HD. I believe the TV upscale to 4K. Have not been able to figure out if I can disable it. The channels also look grainy on my old plasma 42 inch using a joey receiver. Just not as notable with the tv being smaller. As far as a specific channel. It's all of them. Any that play football. And basketball is same way. When the camera is up close to a player it's clear but when it's zoomed out showing both teams at the line is when it's worst. Like around there helmets and arms.

    No I can't compare the two but watched a blu ray and looks fantastic. To me that would leave out the de-interlacing you were saying about. But I could be wrong

    Check your HDMI cable make sure they are 4k type. If your TV is 4 k if not are they the gray ( or silver) change it. Did this to a friend of mine and got the "What did you do to my TV!!

    HDMI signal is digital [TDMA] and cannot degenerate over cable
    but, if it really bad quality, then HDCP negotiation process couldn't happen for 4k resolution and will fall down to HD or SD - this is easy to check, asking TV about info of input signal - no place to guess !

    OK - Click on Menu, Click on Settings, then Click on TV. If it does not say "1080p or 1080i" or something with 4K , change it. You're making it sound like your video output is set to 480p or 480i . You should have the same settings on your Joey(s) - do the same thing.

    after you change it, and you save it, and your TV re-adjusts, your picture may then require some tweaking with the picture settings on the TV.

    Dish DOES have a pretty decent picture, although some video purists don't think so.

    Your TV remote probably has an INFO button that will say what resolution the current input is sending. That is the important thing to be looking at.

    You could always try setting the H3 to output 720 instead of 1080. Could be your TV would upscale 720 better. Never hurts to try.
