It [b:3f37ptoz]says[/b:3f37ptoz] it's HD, but it's very clearly SD.

For fun I downloaded a VoD version of a PixL movie I had recorded on a previous showing and the recorded version was clearly HD where the VoD version was pretty clearly no better than 480i.

For fun I tried the same with an HBO program with the same result.

Is there a setting somewhere, or is this just how DISH VoD is?

I don't recall this being an issue on my 722, though it has been a while. :cry:

Note the stream while downloading was reported as 75 Mbps+ or so.

What's something you watched recently? Perhaps it's just PixL and HBO content.
