DirecTV is the only provider with crystal clear amelioration.
Not complaining, just an observation. Does Travel Channel HD seem a little soft to anyone? Last night I was watching Travel HD and Spike HD. Both shows were shot with handheld HD cameras. On Travel (Man v. Food), on Spike (Ultimate Fighter). I’m using HDMI, Sony 52XBR4 and my HR20 (set to native). Anyhow, Travel HD did not seem as sharp as Spike HD. This was the case with program content, commercials, graphics and logos. Travel HD just doesn’t have the same bite as Spike HD. Anyone else see this?
Where's Lord Vader when we need him to give us a "now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational battle station" comment?
On my 73" Mitsu DLP, TCM is very clear.
Great to have ESPN U in HD. I can not wait until Saturday to watch the NCAA Lacrosse Championships in HD!!
I called retention to complain about DirecTV's usage of the word amelioration. They gave me free Showtime and Starz for 3 months.
James Earl Jones does it better.
I'm glad it wasn't just me that noticed it. It's not TOO bad. But it still could be better.
Tell Lord "noooooo!" Vader to get his own lines.
Except he never said that. That guy who played Palpatine did.
I didn't see any issues although I only have a 37" TV.
I'm sure I can arrange for the HD feed to be taken down for analysis if you'd prefer :lol:
The current show on Travel is OAR, in that I see top and bottom bars. So the aspect ration is > 16:9. The PQ does seem a bit soft, but I'm sure it's the source. The commercials look good.
Correction: this show seems to have some stretching applied. I can see it on the edges, so what's up with that?
Travel ch has a lot of upconverted material, similar to what Showtime was doing 10 years ago. When the program is in real HD, like Anthony Bourdain, the picture looks great. Directv has nothing to do with that, it's the source. The program you see now, "Cash and Treasure" is nor originally in HD.
Analysis not needed.
Yeah, but it should've been Vader. More proof that Lucas should've stopped directing and writing Star Wars movies after the first one.
And besides, Palpatine went out like a punk, thrown down one of those Empire-standard, non OSHA-compliant open shafts that seem to litter every single city, station and spacecraft. Seriously, people - you have artificial gravity, forcefields, blasters, faster-than-light travel, and you can't solve the falling-down-a-huge-open-hole problem? :nono:
ROFLMAO - They are so "beyond" railings.
There was a good reason why I chose D* over Dish...the pq is by far the best I have seen ( including Fios) IMO
Travel Channel HD Programs look great.
Agreed! A week late for Round 1, but glad it is here.
