Not sure if this counts as hardware or software. I'm thinking of getting HD service from Dish Network. I've had very good experience with Dish's SD service for many years. I am on the plan where we get a lot of movie channels but we don't have the "pay" services like HBO and Cinemax. At my brothers' place in NYC I saw that MANY of the "HD" channels on his service are really just zoomed in 4:3 SD stuff scaled up to be "HD" but really suck bigtime. Are Dish's channels like the "Encore" movie channels like that? Otherwise, how is the Dish HD experience? I'm not planning on upgrading my old projector until it breaks.
