Actually now they're horrible as compared to OTA. Tearing, macroblocking, checkerboarding... They're better than SD, but nothing like OTA.stuart628 said:I think you need to check the new mpeg4 locals, they look very comparable to OTA, I believe Directv is on the right path with their HD. Sorry you had a bad night, were you a usc fan?
And has anyone noticed that the MPEG4 encoders don't know how to keep a color reference? The colors, especially blue/greens, shift ever so slightly every few seconds. It's very noticable on a football game, when the green from the field is onscreen on a sideline-view camera with skin tones.
