    Hoosier, I've never seen such contempt for a company in my life. You seem to scour the net looking for Dish bashing opportunities. Did a Dish van run over your dog or something? Of course we'd all like better PQ from all providers, D* included. But Dish's HD-lite still beats most cable HD. I realize I'm talking to a wall, but for the benefit of others who may be on the fence, there is barely any visible difference between Dish and D* HD unless you have a really big screen. I wonder how many HD snobs who raved about the royal wedding coverage on D* even realized they were watching HD-lite courtesy of BBC's feed to all the networks.

    Dont have DISH, but Comcast doesnt downrez their HD feeds. I disagree with the poster above you that they are better than DirecTv though. D* does have a slightly sharper picture on my 60" TV on the 1080i channels. Not that noticable unless you A/B compare them though. I doubt an average viewer would notice any difference.

    That's not even possible. You apparently do not know what Dish does to every single 1080i channel and the overly aggressive compression scheme used with both their 720p and 1080i channels.

    Guys, don't feed the troll ... talk about the issues the OP has raised. It is pointless to argue with someone who is only here to argue.

    Seconding James' comments... Please discuss the topic. Much of the last few posts have relatively little to do with the original topic.

    And the topic is pretty much over. He quit because he didn't realize there were fee changes over a year ago. Nothing to do with his account number mod. This has run it's course.

    Just remember, you can never win if you wrestle with a pig.

    You both get filthy but the pig likes it.
