    I finished watching Season 1 last week in enhanced 16x9 and DD and was highly anticipating Season 2 and the Season 3 which starts to air in March. Anyway, I just got the Dish 6000 installed yesterday and noticed the Sopranos were on at 8 PM tonight. I had to watch.
    The episode was in 4x3, Prologic, and the images sucked! Whats up with this?? The demo channel looks awesome! Do I have the wrong settings on my 6000? or on my Tosh 65H80??
    Help!!??
    Thanks

    Yes, it looks very nice in HD.
    My question is, does HBOHD ever show anything in DD5.1? I always seem to get DD2.0 on most HD shows I watch (I am using the optical digital connection).

    I have a wonderful proof of this theorem but, with the 1536 kb/s bitrate DTS soundtrack, there is no room on the DVD to write it.

    FUCK!!
    20 minutes into the show, and now I see (due to your posts) that Im missing the second episode.
    Watched a few seconds of it, 16x9 and VERY crisp!! Too bad my 2 and 4 year olds are now cuddled on the couch. I guess I'll have to try to catch the episode later. [​IMG]

    I feel like I am seeing 'The Sopranos' for the first time. It looks great!
    HBO has used DD5.1 numerous times with their HDTV movies. Most of the new movies are DD5.1.

    Watched it for the first time this past weekend in HD and it looked fantastic. Can't wait for the season premiere on the 4th.
