Here's the deal I currently have two satellite receivers both are the same 301 receivers, one is Dishnet, and the other is Bell Express vu. Both video feeds go directly into my 52" HDTV via S-video cables. The audio from these units goes to the receiver. My problem is while everything else has a great picture like my PS2, DVD, my satellite picture kind of sucks on most channels. Some of the movie channels are pretty decent but others it's pretty crappy. I had a friend set up my TV using a set up DVD with test patterns etc. I've added a monster power center and filter, had to lower the detail and use the noise filter in the TV to soften the picture. This helps a fair bit. But some channels still irritate me. The person that installed the new dishes is a professional of many years, and on top of that I had everything inspected by a second technician. They have checked the cables, switches and signal and everything is perfect. The only answer they can give me for the poor picture quality is that it's my TV. Not that the TV is bad though. Both claim that many satellite and cable signals are not really meant to be displayed on that large of displays or in 16:9 format. And because I've set up my TV as such to reduce the ever changing screen format while in "Auto format" as well as any risk of "burn in" from viewing in 4:3 I'm stretching the picture more then it should be and that's causing some if not most of the poor quality. Is this true? Will replacing older satellite receivers with new HDTV receivers solve this problem on SD channels? Or do other SD channels (not available in HD) still display the same way?
