If anyone watching, or could take a peek at the SF-St.Louis BB game, on right now, and give an opinion on the PQ, I'd appreciate it. It's channel 696 in N. California, Comcast Sports Network. My take is that last night and tonight's broadcasts are very low quality, though technically HD. Really soft pictures.

Ugh! Why so soft? Where's the bind on the bit rate? Or is it lousy cameras at Busch Stadium for this series?

If there are some Cards fan watching on your local sports channels, can you also see 696? Are the two feeds similar? Is your local feed also Comcast? [Or can you see a huge difference between OTA and DIRECTV® broadcast?]

The Cards feed looks fine. The CSN feed looks soft again tonight. It's probably just equipment reasons.
The Cards feed on a non-CSN network? Do the Cards have their own, or is St. Louis BB carried on another network entirely?

Can you speculate on equipment reasons? Or are there two sets of cameras, etc. in the stadium, so it could be, in fact, the cameras or the truck there?

The Cards feed is Fox Sports Midwest.

I'm nowhere near an expert on this, but I've read the teams may have crappier uplink equipment when traveling.

Thanks, gents. I hope to high heaven the Fox 'cast is better than Comcast with the Giants in St. Louis. What they show from ATT Park is far far better, though not sterling.

It makes sense to me that an uplink that can't throw out the proper bit rate would create the crap picture I am seeing tonight.
