I've got this blockiness that I can't seem to get rid of. Maybe pixelation? And it's driving me crazy. Last year I purchased the Dish500 package. I used the supplied cable (RG-6 is it?) from the dish to my wall. From the wall I used a very old cable to go to the SAT receiver then another old cable to go from that into my VCR then out to my TV. These "old" cables were definitely not RG-6. During all this time I've always noticed that in some sky shots (and other shots) that I could see a distinct pixelation between the varying degrees of color. It was like the shades of colors were separated. So, I went out and purchased all new RG-6 cables a few days ago. Everything running from the wall outlet to the SAT receiver, to VCR to TV is RG-6 gold series. Now the separation of color is gone but the blockiness is worse and there seems to be a faint ghosting effect. I've tried taking the VCR out of the chain but that didn't work. I've adjustted and readjusted the settings on my TV but it didn't work. I don't know what else it could be. The signal strength of the SAT is 110+. Very high for our area. Is there anything else to try or check? [EDIT] - ooops, I forgot to mention that I also use the S-Video out from the SAT receiver into my Outlaw 1050 and then into the TV. The S-video cables are also gold series. Now that I think of it I will switch between the two to see which gets rid of the blocks. Maybe it's just a bad cable.
