Went back to Vue for a month because it is half off. Hate to say it, but Vue's quality blows Premium tv away. Hopefully Stage 2 arrives soon.
+1. I really hope we start seeing real progress on this soon. The 2.0 thread mentions “1.5” changes engaged on CNBC with other channels in the coming week. We’re halfway through that week with zero updates. Posts of complaints of jittering and audio issues seem to be increasing lately too. Then this issue with some channels unexpectedly changing from Pacific to Eastern due to the upstream provider SNAFU yesterday. Stuff happens, I totally understand that. I work for a team that does 7-figure, multi-year software implementations all over the country; there are always hurdles to overcome. But I’ve also not observed any meaningful PQ improvements since the end of August. Just a lot of “soon”.
The deadline for me is December 6th, when the new season of Top Chef on Bravo starts. One of the few ‘cable’ shows my wife cares about, I will not take away from her enjoyment with this sub-par PQ. If PQ hasn’t improved by then, after 3 months of hope, I’m out. Life’s too short for “ok” PQ.
I love the HDHR tuners. I love the local control. I love the local OTA integration. HDP’s channel selection is the best of any OTT for my family. The support here is incredible. It’s a fantastic ecosystem. I know good people at SD are trying hard to make it better. But I need to see the PQ competitive with the other OTT’s. It’s time.
