Masters Golf ESPNHD vs. 706

I started the Masters on 206HD and was getting the little sound jumps and very slight pixelization very infrequently, especially when action was in rapid motion.

I then switched over to 706 and took in that experience. Wow, the pictures were very solid and clear and sound was perfect.

In both cases its shows as 1080, with right light on my HR20-700 so assume these feeds are all on sat 103C.

Don't really understand why 206HD can have these blips and 706 feeds do not so I am just curious.

I tweeked my antenna alignment a couple of weeks ago and all my 103C numbers are solid from 70 to 86.

I have tried these tips on hitting the reverse arrow or other keys to stop the sound jumps but nothing works.

Anyway I will be a happy camper this week just using 706 and jumping around all they have to offer. What an experience.

I noticed the difference as well. I was also watching 709 at one point and the channel switched to channel 2 by itself. It was strange as there were no recordings to take place that would have forced the jump. I simply hit "previous" button to go back so it wasn't a big deal.

Bravo to Direct tv for putting together those awesome HD masters channels. I love the feel of them (as it reminds me of the sunday ticket experience :)

GO PHIL!

Mine also jumped back to 2 one time.

Today I am getting some sound jumps on ESPNHD but not any picture problems. The 706 group of channels are perfect today.

Even into last night the sound and picture problems continued on several channels like basketball on TNTHD and ESPN channels. But not on others so don't understand all this.
