<You must have a really crappy cable television company, or you must be like a million miles away from the cable company.> I live in the middle of nowhere, of course it's a really really crappy cable tv company! <I have Dish Network(recievers connected via S-Video to calibrated televisions) and I also have analog cable and analog cable has a much better picture even vs Dish Network's stronger channels.> Analog cable around here looks worse than a piece of thin copper wire as an antenna! Digital is still really bad. <I think that many people mistake the lack of dot crawl, ghosting, etc in the Dish Network picture for a high quality> It depends on "quality". Personally I find almost any half-decent digital picture more pleasing on my eyes than most (typically noisy) analog pictures. That's why I put DISH above an antenna (cable around here is terrible). < high resolution picture. People don't the understand the concept of what a detailed high resolution picture is supposed to look like. Dish Network certainly does NOT have a high resolution> YES, It does. Resolution is not quality. Dish is 480x480. DirecTV is 720x480 (same as DVD). Cable/antenna is about 330x525 (but part of that goes to v-sync and stuff making it closer to 330x500 actual picture). VHS is around 240x525 (again closer to an actual of 240x500). As you can see, resolution DOES NOT EQUAL PICTURE QUALITY. Picture quality is also affected in the digital world by compression, and in the analog world by noise. < highly detailed picture on ANY standard definition channel PERIOD.> Define highly detailed. Compared to VHS or local cable, it certainly IS highly detailed.
