    You know nothing about me, if you're extrapolating one comment of mine (taking $10 discount from DISH) like that to draw bigger conclusions about me. After all, comparing "not having Setanta on DISH" to far more critical and important things in life you have to worry about in politics is beyond absurd. There is no God-given right that Setanta must be carried on every platform like DISH. I'm just hoping you were drunk when you wrote that.

    Also, while you lot are busy whinging about not having Setanta on DISH, I'm busy enjoying Setanta + Setanta Xtra + FSC + GolTV + World Sport HD + ESPN Deportes + Fox Sports en Espanol and bunch of other stuff on DISH + DirecTV with my attitude.

    When you said "you", were you referring to me personally? I'm already better off with Setanta through DirecTV, which gives Setanta Xtra too.

    I was merely suggesting another alternative to obrienaj, if he could've kept DISH, take their $10 a month discount and get Setanta through Globecast. Of course, it wouldn't give him Setanta Xtra, but maybe that could've been OK for him. ITVN could have been another alternative for him too, as you say. Again, no Setanta Xtra available on ITVN, which is something to consider.

    I think so. And if you want to call me crazy for thinking that, I'm very honored to be called crazy.

    For the record, I've never had any picture quality issues with World Sport HD like you mention. It may have something specifically to do with your display.

    Nothing.

    And it also doesn't have anything to do with Dutch Eredivisie, Le Championnat de France, Coca Cola Championship, UEFA Cup, Rugby League, Gaelic Football or Australian Football.

    And your point is?

    No there is no 'god-given' right, but that is the whole point of this thread. We have Dish, and we want Setanta because we love premiership football. We are willinging to pay for it but I don't want to subscribe to another satalite just to get one channel. I don't have that sort of money lying around.

    You only had to watch the Arsenal vs Man U game at the weekend to know that it is the best league in the world by a far. I want every premiership possible.

    And yes I am always drunk, it's not a bad way to be. Don't take things so personally. If you're not interesting in supporting our need for Setenta on Dish there are other threads you can go contribute to.

    I was an Henry fan for a few minutes, that's for sure! It's weird because in the first half the two announcers were discussing the fact that Henry doesn't do well with the headers----but that goal SMOKED!

    I was saddened by Henry's goal in extra time, but it was a good goal, and will keep the title race alive. in the end tho, the mighty United will prevail-resistance is futile...

    And as for Setanta- although I have ITVN its just passable but better than nothing
    the thing with Setanta is- its a PPV channel and all Dish needs to work out is how much they get from it and the bandwidth ! they dont have to add it to any programming packages for crying out loud !

    C'mon Charlie get with the game !!

    Chandubhai, it was not my display the problem was the picture quality. The picture could not keep up with the movement, so every sudden move looked out of focus.

    Also, one thing that really pisses me off about WSHD is you don't know whether the game is live or six months old. They repeat too many games. To tell you the truth I am about done with all the repeats on the Voom channels.

    Something that gets me - is that some of the animated advertising boards at the stadiums are so bright and neon they really ruin the viewing experience. It seems much worse in Spain and HD really brings out the worse in them!! I've had some focus problems but then i'm used to watchign the terrible picture on FSC so all is fair in lover and war!!!

    Now come on, that can't be a real excuse, could it? You would know by now that there is 1 premium La Liga LIVE match on a weekend. It is very easy to schedule one for recording by looking at schedules from worldsporthd.com or multiple other sites such as soccertv.com . If you're following this sport in this country, it doesn't take long to recognize these are not mainstream events. If you're not willing to take up that much effort to look up schedules, I don't know what to tell you. You're not going to have 10000 TV channels, news papers, radio stations and co-workers screaming about them to you, like some NFL playoff match. It is implicitly understood that you're going to take that extra effort. If you don't have the bandwidth for that, maybe you're better off following mainstream American sports.

    Still don't know which specific Real Madrid match with focus problems you're talking about. Last night, I got finished watching recording of Barcelona vs. Gimnastic from Sunday, and I can tell you the picture quality was absolutely stunning. There were no motion related artifacts. If it matters, my display's native resolution is 1080p. I've set the output resolution of ViP622 to 1080i. DISH broadcasts World Sport HD in 1080i. The video processor inside my display deinterlaces 1080i to 1080p and I'm assuming it is doing a reasonably good job of fixing motion related artifacts.

    I've heard progressive pictures look lot better when watching pictures with lot of motion, e.g. various codes of football sports. If it's worth exercise, try setting your receiver's output resolution to 720p instead of 1080i and see if that makes things any better.
