A few days ago my picture quality took a turn for the worse. Previously HD looked crisp and I had no problems (especially discovery HD and my nfl ticket HD channels). I now have a very grainy picture on both HD and non-HD channels. It is on both live tv and recorded shows, even those shows recorded prior to the picture turning bad. The reason I make the distinction is that I previously watched those tivoed shows and the picture quality was A+ at the time (now they suck).
I seem to remember reading something about the hdmi interface (which I have been using) on the hr10-250s having some issues. But I hooked up the unit using component cables and the picture quality showed no improvement.
I have it set to 1080i
Why would the picture suddenly turn bad, with no change in equipment hookup?
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I dread the directv tech support call that I will have to make.
And Is it 2010 yet, I just want that nfl ticket agreement to expire so that I can end my directv relationship forever!
