    The Pic Quality is great on all shows but the West Wing?

    Why is it so grainy?

    Any one else watch tonight?

    Also on the comercial after the west wing the music was studdering. I was the song Memories. . . . .

    I think they need to do some work still, after all it was the first night.

    Yeah, good to see more HD but I'm pretty sure I will never watch Bravo HD. I can only watch so many operas and musicals. Hopefully they will decide to air more of the content they "control". USA does air a lot of golf, I could handle that in HD.

    I was pretty happy to see another HD network appear last night. I doubt I'll watch it that often, though. As I scanned through the programming over the next couple of days I saw a lot of concerts, etc., that featured people I've never heard of. Still, tennis looked good. I'm just glad that BravoHD isn't a simulcast of regular Bravo.

    I checked out Bravo HD last night and it was fine. Today I get sound drop outs for the first 30 seconds or so. Anyone else get that? Nice picture for sure.

    The picture quality of Bravo HD looks about the same as ESPN HD. Is it being broadcast at 720 as opposed to 1080i?

    It is 1080i AFAIK. All NBC-Universal channels will probably be 1080i.

    This channel was added first because of the NBC contract and the U.S. Open. At least, someone can watch the tennis in HD, finally.
