    Actually, you're probably right. I got a new projector in the middle of last season and that is when I started noticing the problem. The new projector shows a lot more detail than my old one that it makes it easier to be bothered.

    I watched all of the preseason games that were produced by the local ABC affiliate and they were excellent quality. Then I got my TivoHD and recorded the first game of the season on it. The PQ was just so much worse on Thursday night that I had to comment.

    There are at least 2 other threads in this forum that are complaining about NBC's broadcast Thursday night, and I've seen two other threads in my Sony forum on the regular AVSForums with folks using a wide range of OTA, Cable, Sat, DVR equipment on complaining about it too. Definitely an NBC issue.

    since half the broadcast newtorks are 1080i and half are 720p everyone is likely to need the scaler at some point in time or another. (unless of course they set the box to native and let the tv's scaler deal with it...)

    People were comparing the THD scaler to the S3 scaler. I was pointing out that it was irrelevant as to this football game if the TiVo was set to 1080i (or to native as you point out).

    thanks- I was wondering beyond the OP's question and talking bigger picture. But I get your point.
