Reading some of the posts got me thinking about those questioning HD local quality. I have local OTA HD (via Samsung SIR-T451 receiver) and local's on D*. On HD programs, the OTA looks better.

It is likely D* is getting the local HD's via MPEG2 compressed feeds. This means they will have to decompress the MPEG2 and recompress as MPEG4.

I am pretty sure the double compression/decompression conversions will cause video degradation.
