    Hello all.
    Recently, I purchased a 36" Wega (Xbr450).
    I have had DishNetwork for a few years now, and
    have never really noticed any type of picture
    defects. Now, with the 36", I am getting very
    annoyed by most a lot of the channels. Some look
    great, some look ok, some are down right terrible.
    Is this the TV, Dish, or both? I haven`t done
    a lot of research on this, but as far as I can
    tell, its sorta both.
    DVD and OTA look beautiful. Some of the Dish
    channels are also great, but a lot arent (like
    the superstations).
    Is there any remedy for this? Anything I can put
    inline to help out the picture? (I have dish 500
    and a Terk TV42 antenna, and a 2700 receiver).
    Is there anyway to turn the DRC off?
    thanks for any help
    Adam

    If you haven't calibrated your TV, then it's both. If you have, then it's Dish. Some channels are more compressed than others.

    I have calibrated it with Video Essentials for
    now. After reading more and more at another forum,
    I am seeing lots of people with picture complaints,
    especially after getting a digital TV or RPTV.
    Either way, its gotta be better than Adelphia cable.
    Thanks!
