THE QUALITY OF YOUR SIGNAL IS NOT DETERMINED BY THE METHOD (CABLE/SAT) YOU USE, RATHER HOW WELL YOUR CHOOSEN PROVIDER CAN SENT THE SIGNAL TO YOUR LOCATION. IF YOU FEEL YOUR CABLE SIGNAL IS BELOW PAR, HAVE THE CABLE COMPANY CHECK THE EXTERIOR LINES AND CONNECTIONS. MOST CABLE COMPANIES WILL PROVIDE THIS SERVICE FREE OF CHARGE. IMPROPER OR OLD CONNECTION COULD BE PREVENT YOU FROM GETTING THE BEST POSSIBLE SIGNAL.OF THE TWO SAT COMPANIES, DISH WILL GIVE YOU MORE FOR YOUR MONEY (ASK STEWART). HOWEVER, WITH DISH, YOU NEED AN ANTENNA FOR LOCAL CHANNELS. DIRECTV HAS MORE SPORTS (NFL PACKAGE), BUT ENDS TO BE MORE EXPENSIVE. REGARDLESS WHICH PROVIDER YOU CHOOSE, A STANDARD DEFINITION SIGNAL DOES NOT DISPLAY ON A HDTV VERY WELL.
Which would you prefer Cable or Sattelite dish for the overall best HD picture and QUANTITY of HD channels as well as the quality of the standard def reception.
I currently have cable and the standard def reception is terrible through the cable box. I ran this thru my built in tuner in my Sony SXRD and it is better but still not as good as I would like. Any thoughts??
