Recent Picture Quality

Hi all .... anyone else notice a degradation in picture quality recently (say last couple weeks)? Could it have anything to do with recent free previews? Having to throttle back or maybe another related issue.

Nope, the sat beams have no bandwidth limits all 20 million users use the same 3 sats.

@shannon02 thanks for your response. As someone who works from home and a D* customer since 1999, I keep a very watchful eye ... and have lots of data in regards to anomalies in picture quality (different times of the day, different channels, etc).

For the sake of any future conversation, here is my setup:

  • HR54- 200 (months back I downgraded from Genie 2)

    • Software 0x12e5

  • C61K-700

    • Software 0x12c5

  • TV: Samsung Q90 65", QN65Q90RAFXZA

  • AVR: RX-A780 Yamaha

Thanks again!
