More Stage 1.5 progress... CNBC has been upgraded to solve the deinterlacing problem on that channel. Other channels are being upgraded over the coming week.

Thanks for providing the updates, I'm checking the channels as you announce. I'm really curious how the updates will look for channels with film content.

Can't say I see a quality difference on CNBC, but it does tune a lot faster.

I agree. I thought maybe the ticker looked a little smoother. Maybe slightly less glitchy than CNN/MSNBC/FOXN. But I don't watch CNBC on a regular basis, so I can't really compare. Eager to see improvements on more action-oriented content.

I'm very happy to see some 1.5 improvements are rolling out. Keep it up!

Bring on some 2.0! :D

Just signed up for the 2 week trial as I think this has a lot of potential when paired with Emby. Currently using DirectvNow but frustrated with DVR. That being said concur with the poor video quality. Had neighbors over this weekend and they could immediately tell the difference. Please keep moving forward with stage 2 asap!

Me too, and wondering if we could get a list of properly deinterlaced channels. I mean, is CNBC the only one?

Has something happened to Hallmark? it no longer appears on the list. Is the removal part of Stage 2? Please say no.

The Health Status thread says they are having a problem with Hallmark at the moment. Working to resolve.

I have some news for The Health Status thread...
The last few days have seen PTV drop off the table with the worst quality since it started.

If there ever was a 'right time' for SD to start rolling out Stage 2 - it would be now. If 'upstream' is selling streams that are supposed to be competitive - it fails... miserably.

Premium channels quality is horrible. Why did you release this if it's clearly a beta. I tried other competitors and quality is way better than this. You guys dropped the ball on this big time! We're not even getting an update on phase 2.

In the meantime, I cancelled my subscription.

Months of hope. Weeks without an update. 3 days of HDP subscription left. Sad to say I’m out until 2.0 launches and proves itself reliable. Looking forward to coming back when SD finally figures out how to implement it.

Sanity check... are you seeing over-compression, or actual faults/corruption in the video?

We will send out an announcement when Stage 2 is live.
