Just added a home theatre in my basement. DirecTV came an re-wired my house, installed something in my dish and now I have a SWM system. Since then I have had poor local chanel (through the dish) performance. Faces look washed out and scenes with lots of motion in them blur with tiny pixelation in the areas that are moving. I do not remember this before SWM. The problem is apparent on two of my receivers (an HR20 100 and an HR24). The opening scene of Hawaii Five-0 looked like a digital mess on my 160" projection screen and my 40" LCD. On ABC Nightly News last night, Diane Sawyer looked like she just came from the undertaker. Face shots are very splotchy(sp?). Is this a known issue? A DirecTV tech is coming Saturday. Is he just going to throw his hands up in disgust? Is DirecTV compressing the Locals too much? I'm installing an OTA antenna tonight to compare. How close should they be? Bud from East Peoria, IL.
