…anyone else have trouble convincing family members, that HD is worth the trouble? My Mom has a 60” LCD fed for a year by a base-pkg SD Direct Receiver approx. 5 years old. For the year I have cringed over the horribly bad PQ on both her menu with its fuzzy edged print, and the Pic which on highly compressed feeds is grainy to the point (for me) of unwatchablility. She had an over decade long exasperating history with the Cable Co. Each time it glitched, weeks of repeat service calls passed (4 to 8 trips, twice) before service was again reliable. She keeps basic cable to take over when her Direct Satellite Feed is lost in rain fade. The multi-feed system has maintained a fragile equilibrium the last year, - no service calls required.. Each time I stated: " MOM! You have an HD display capable of much higher resolution than it is currently producing we have to get your PQ sorted out, - and your dish upgraded; you need to utilize your resources! She’d raise an eyebrow, “It looks good to me, and it works. If they touch it, - it will all break again!” I finally pestered her to the point where she grudgingly agreed to allow me to get her system upgraded for her this years Christmas gift from me. Spent two weeks sorting the deal with *D. Last night, after many hilarious interactions between the poor installer, me and my Mother, (who is telling the installer during a frozen download of receiver authorization, "No...your on the wrong feed, you need to be on AUX. Me: “No Mom...that’s your cable on AUX.” Finally, the new HD STB is online! I did not get to check it out last night, as I and the installer were arguing over how to get her slaved Master Satellite feed back on-line which had gone missing since the cable repair crew were last onsite a year past. While the installer and I were climbing around the house I left her pushing buttons and familiarizing herself with the new HD remote. Every so often, she came to locate us. Popping her head in for a quick moment before dashing back to her LCD display ….”The picture is so 3-D!!!!”. ..later ….”You know I never really believed you…I was just not too sure about this whole thing. I can’t wait for your brother to see this!” ..."what channel Is HBOHD on?!".... Sigh Awh, - the glow of an HD feed upon your Mothers face.
