The problem w/ this station for U may be the fact that they are only running a low power set up. I looked at it's x-mitter specs on line and they are only running 891kw. that is pretty low power.MilYellow02 said:Nascar is a great thing to watch in HD but channel 5 (Kxas) in the DFW market absolutely sucks. The video and audio are horrible in every aspect.
Right. And correct me if I'm wrong, but if you have a locked digital signal, it shouldn't matter how powerful the station is broadcasting, right?If that's the case, it's weird that I've been getting 98 signal strength the last couple of weeks on KXAS. And I'm 45 miles from the towers.
Does your local NBC multi-cast? If so that is probably the culprit. They are not allocating the full bandwidth to their HD programming. Both my NBC and CBS affiliate have secondary channels showing useless content (24x7 5 day weather report and 24x7 airport webcam respectively) and they look like crap during fast motion, where as my ABC and FOX affilates do not multicast and they look great during fast motion.bkleven said:My experience so far with NBC sporting events is not good. KUSA-DT (NBC) here in Denver produces their local newscast in HD, and it always looks pretty good.
Of course, the news doesn't normally have a lot of motion in the picture, so probably not the best measuring stick.
Maybe there are NBC affiliates that broadcast a great picture for NBC sporting events, but so far, my limited experience tends to point to the network as the problem and not the affiliates. But like I said, that's limited experience.
CBS NFL HD blows away NBC NFL HD - IMHO.
We live about 15 miles apart so we are probably hitting around the same signals. I am watching the race on Saturday night and I will bet you a buffalo nickel that it will be horrible AGAIN! :nono2:arch655 said:I just recently upgraded my 921 to 622 and I am having a similar problems with KXAS in HD too. I am recieving this station via dish with a 622 and the dish 1000 system. Is anyone having this trouble too. All the other stations are good. Is dish recieving the signal via antenna and rebrodcasting it. If they are are they planning fix that. I have email dishquality and waiting to see they will reply. If they do I will keep you posted.
Looks pretty crisp on my 60" SRXD. The incar shots as well as the replays were SD. I only watched the race between innings of the baseball game. I wish we could get this type of picture for F1 and motorcycle events!ssmith10pn said:I don't have the best eyes in the world but NBC HD does lack that crispness.
It's almost like it's 480p in a 16:9 format. You just don't see the detail like you should on true HD stuff.
SXRD is 1080P I don't kmow about cable, but I just left D* because of so much compression on many SD channels, plus the lack of HD. Perhaps I'm not as discriminating as you. But, at this stage I realize nothing is perfect.ssmith10pn said:A SXRD is a very forgiving TV. It makes analog Cable TV look good!
Try looking at it on a 1080P TV and let me know how it looks.
