Wow, this isn't working out well at all. My wife and I bought an HDTV back in April. After being loyal Tivo customers since the day it came out (we were one of the first to buy it in Oregon where we live) we had no real choice but to swtich to Comcast DVR. We were ecstatic when HD Tivo was released. $600 (the box + the 3 year) was pricey, but not too much to have our beloved Tivo back. Ever since then it's been a headache, literally. The box works fine in terms of recording shows. It's speedy, something I'd never say about the Comcast DVR. It shows SD signals better than the Comcast DVR as well, a surprise. The problem is that fall TV season has started and we're learning painfully that HD Tivo doesn't do the HD part right. At least our box doesn't. The picture is blurry. The sound is a mixed bag. Tonight we had to crank our TV up to 50% of total volume (we usually watch TV at 30) because the the sound from the speakers on the TV was coming out strange, the music overpowering the dialogue on 30 Rock and The Office dialogue playing at a very low volume. The worst is the picture, though. On HD channels the picture is blurry, often pixelated during any kind of fast motion. Even the slightest. You can almost see little panels where it's trying to put together the picture. It not only completely defeats the purpose of the HD TV, but it is literally painful to the eyes. I'm not entirely certain what to do about this. Is this normal? Would a new box solve these issues? Are these known issues? Is a service upgrade in the works? At this point, given that the main reason the HDTV was purchased was for actually television it's tempting to revert back to SDTV or at least revert back to an SD Tivo and get a Comcast HD box for sports (going back to Comcast DVR isn't an option). Please tell me there is some hope. I have a PRP with Best Buy for the TV and the Tivo. It's extremely tempting to walk in with both tomorrow and go back to analogue. At least then the headaches while watching The Office, of all shows, will go away.
