HDTV news

And so we got our HDTV and DVR combo from Comcast yesterday. I can’t say that I am fully happy with it. We were given a Motorola DTC-6412 model, which works well with 480p and 720p resolutions, but we encountered problems with the 1080i resolution (there was a certain “wave” on the screen). So we set the box to 480p and we are happy with the 15 HDTV channels that exist so far. Quality is ok on the HDTV channels and on most digital channels.

But the quality of the analog channels is now much worse than before! All channels from 02 to 80 are twice as bad than they were before. I did some googling, and indeed, the Motorola decoders SUCK at boosting the analog channels, lots of people are unhappy with that cable box apparently for that reason alone. Other than that, we are happy with our cable upgrade. HDTV looks ok, DVR is useful.
