Well... so switching to TelstraClear Digital TV service comes with a cost... a big cost!!! the picture quality is poor on LCD screens, and plasma too for that fact, or infact any displays that have pixels.


I am wondering and real keen to drive for a petition to push for a class action request to get TelstraClear to provide a higher model for their digtal decoder, that provide SCART/S-Video/Component output.

And as Microsoft officially launched MCE2005 PCs in NZ on 12th October 2005, and YET still no official support for EPG, perhaps TelstarClear can be generous and for marketting sake to work with MS to provide EPG for MCE2005 PCs, and perhaps create a bundled service to provide TelstraClear Digital TV service with MCE2005 PCs, and utilise TelstraClear Digital TV's EPG?


Do you all think? good idea?

imo it's quite simply crap on any screen bigger than 21" including CRT really quite disappointing. What's more, comparing it side by side to the same Sky channel feed I'd almost be inclined to say that Saturn receive their sky feed off the satellite and then compress it again! some of the artifacts appear considerably worse than what they are in some of the already overcompressed sky digital channels.

I agree. i do think TC recompresses even more to deliver down their cable channel... mmm perhaps a plea to get them to relax the compression?
