I've been catching some great movies on various HD channels and have began to think that the sat feed was a little clearer than the same dvd. Perfect Storm was on DISH-TNT-HD last night which gave me a perfect opportunity to compare the quality difference of the sat/HD feed vrs a dvd .........what I found was astonishing....... The Dish/TNTHD feed was spectacular! MUCH more crisp and detailed... also a brighter picture..... and it wasn't just a little difference.... it was a HUGE leap..... My player is a newer Panny (47 I think), hooked to my hdtv via Canare componet cables and the HD/DISH receiver is hooked up with componet cable that was supplied with it. I went through every setting in the player and the tv also trying to make the picture quality of the dvd better but never even got close to the TNTHD feed. I still have no answer but hope some of yall here have experienced this......... It has me thinking that: 1) I need a different/better dvd player 2) The TNT feed is not using a dvd as source 3) my dvd collection is souring with age and quality is leaking out..... Anybody else noticed this ?
