"A&E Launches HD Version" http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=67112
Most of my HD watching is CBS Primetime, but for high quality HD I like PBS HD, Discovery HD Theater, Yankees games on YES HD and NFL Primetime on ESPN HD. My PBS affiliate has a series that features different towns in the area and its shot in HD. Very cool to watch. And in the beginning of the summer Time Warner finally got the guide data for PBS HD right.
I like Get Out on HD Net because of those three hotties, and In Theaters on InHD. It's basically a 30 minute show of movie trailers, but the first time I saw it was when Cars was about to come out in theaters. Seeing trailers for the latest movies (especially CGI flicks) is pretty cool. The In Concert special on InHD are cool. Not so much for the view since it’s shot in a dark amphitheater with lighting effects, not all of which translate well into HD, but hearing some of my favorite bands like Rush and Korn live in Dolby 5.1 is great.
Whoever is voting ABC has obviously never tried to watch a football game on there...
Hands down the worse "HD" picture out there. I would love it if another network would pick up the Big 12 games. Pretty sad when I watch more SEC football on CBS than my own conference...
Best HD picture I ever saw was on the show Love Monkey, I don't think I've seen a clearer picture since. I voted CBS as the network but my CBS station runs at full bandwidth around 19 Mbits
You could lock out 140 so it can't be tuned, that would remind them to punch in the HD number
You left off PBS. It gets my vote
I voted for Discovery, but HDnet coverage of the shuttle is awesome.
I agree. I don't know how you can pick anything else except CBS. A Saturday night SEC game on CBS OTA is always SPECTACULAR for PQ and production value! Thank goodness I am a Gator fan.
Yet another boo-boo on my part. :whatdidid Think of it as my way of letting everyone know that I'm not as perfect as you probably think I am. :sure:
Seriously, I tend to agree that PBS has excellent HD PQ, but what I really like is that they air HD programming at different hours throughout a 24-hour day, not just during 'prime time'.
I regret leaving PBS-HD off the poll.
I couldn't agree more with you. I absolutely despise my ABC HD local. I can't even get DD 5.1 through it in my area. I can, however, get DD 5.1 through CBS and NBC; FOX HD isn't even offered in my area :nono2:
Quick question: How come only some of the ABC games are in HD? For instance, last week one of the PAC-10 games was in letterbox. Is this ABC who chooses what games they'll broadcast in HD?
I've also seen this on CBS HD. I was trying to watch the Chargers play a couple weeks ago and the game was in letterbox. Both through my local CBS HD feed and my Los Angeles HD CBS feed.
With over 350 responses to our "Best Network HD" poll so far, Discovery HD, with 38% of the votes
to date, has taken a commanding lead over its closest challenger, HDNet, which has garnered 21%
of the responses.
Among the four major networks, CBS, with a respectable 17% of votes, holds an impressive lead
over ABC, NBC and FOX.
If you haven't voted yet, be sure to do so. Tell us which HD network you think has the very best HD PQ.
(Please note that not all HD subscribers receive every HD channel listed in the poll.)
How about another poll for best sound quality and/or overall experience? Rave gets my vote for overall home theater experience channel.
For HT experience, I might just give the nod to Fox for their NASCAR telecasts. They do a pretty good job with sound quality. Also would have to include INHD, HDNet and PBS for their concert series. All very satisfying.
Larry, we will have the opportunity to see a telecast from the ISS in
HD for the first time, this Wednesday at 11:30 a.m E on Discovery.
However, HDNet and some of INHD1 and 2 shows (especially their diving shows) are spectacular. ESPN's Monday Night Football and NBC's Sunday night games can also be spectacular.
I only get the locals in HD - Cuz i'm too cheap to get cable or sat and don't watch 200 channels anyway. My vote for best HD quality pic is CBS -for a consistent qreat pic and excellent 5.1 sound- CSI Miami IMHO has the best pic -very bright and brilliant colors every episode - they must spend a bit to produce that show! Fox is very good also for football and prison break. I believe pbs is also better since they switched to 720p.
I don't think PBS changed from 1080i, your local station is probably downconverting to 720p to save bandwidth.
You know I was wondering about that. I also live in WNY and I was in the hidden diagnostic screens on the Scientific Atlanta cable box and when I put on WNED it reported that it was being sent out by TW in 1280 x 720. I was baffled, but just shrugged it off.
You're lucky you aren't somewhere where the local PBS shows essentially nothing in hd.Something to do with the mothership PBS charging for it.
Actually I'm extra lucky. I get my PBS affiliate, WNED from Buffalo in HD and I get the Rochester PBS affiliate, WXXI in HD by using the QAM tuner in my HDTV since TW sends out Rochester locals in unencrypted QAM. Each affiliate shows different programming at any given time for the most part. In Buffalo, we have a series called My Town or Home Town or something to that effect where different townships in the area are spotlighted and it’s shot in high def. I cought two episodes for far, it's pretty cool.
Over 450 readers have already participated in DBSTalk's "Very Best TV Network
HD" poll, but with so many new HDTV sets purchased over the holidays, we want
to give these proud new HDTV owners an opportunity to give us their impression
of which network has the best HD picture quality
This poll closes in less than two weeks, so be sure to get your vote in on time.
