    Speed Weeks has kicked off today in HD and it looks great.
    Media Day was in HD and now Nascar Live is on and coming up at 4p The Bud Shootout practice begins.

    Some audio hickups, but picture is great.

    the shootout picture doesn't look that good in HD. my receiver keeps saying it is 480i, though its widescreen. image has a lot of artifacts. tried turning off the native picture and manually bumping it to 720p or 1080i and it doesnt look much different.

    I set my reciever only to 1080i. it might look better that way.

    Jimmy Spencer looks .....interesting in HD.

    do you have an HR21-700? this is a known problem with those receivers. they interpret many 720p channels such as SPEED HD as 480i sometimes. the only workarounds are what you said, manually set it to 720p, or keep it on "native", tune to a 1080i channel such as food hd, then tune to a 720p channel such as nat geo hd, then flip on 607, and the box will then interpret speed hd as 720p.

    apparently DTV is going to do nothing about this, as apparently not enough people seem to be reporting it, as i think many people use their box set at one reslution rather than native. i would rather have my pioneer plasma do all the converting and scaling.
