    I have a TiVo HD with CCs outputting 1080i via component to a 1080i/480p direct view TV. I've been noticing for awhile now that only during WWE Raw episodes on USA am I seeing a weird effect.

    The best way to explain it is that it sort of reminds me of the blurring effect that one could possibly see when watching something that had been converted from PAL->NTSC back in the day.

    In a way it kind of seems as if it's framerate is reduced. It seems to happen when there is action and the camera and ring ropes are moving too. It's most noticeable when they switch to one of the camera crew ringside cameras, the effect happens, and then they switch back to the hard camera (at distance in the stands) and the video smooths back out. It's really annoying and distracting.

    Has anyone else seen this? Does anyone have an idea what this might be?

    They don't have enough bandwidth, watch the video displays from the hand-held camera towards the ramp, you'll see massive pixellation.

    Who has the bandwidth issue? WWE or my cable company?

    WWE, I have no idea what cable company you're talking about.

    He's talking about wrestling. Maybe his TV is rebelling against brainless content.

    ...they're on a channel that's supposed to be showing science fiction.

    Admittedly they're fiction, but still...
