I switched from analog cable to Dish Network today. I have a Sony KV36-FV26 TV and a Dishpro 301 receiver. My first impression of the picture quality (via s-video connection) was very positive. The only bad thing I noticed was what seemed like a HELL of a lot of compression artifacts. Is this normal? The picture is still a lot better than my old analog cable connection, I have about 5 times the useable channels and the cost is exactly the same ...so no real complaints. I was curious if 'better' Dish receivers produce a better picture, or not. My signal strength is 97-98. The sound quality from my Dish connection is just fine. It seems to be a bit lower in volume than the audio from my DVD and my CD players, though. That happen to anyone else? The installation was quick and professional. The two guys performing the install had a look of awe and wonder when they found out that the big, black cylinder was my subwoofer (SVS 20-39pc). That look was well worth the price of the install (free). So far, I am a happy Dish customer.
