MPEG artificats in analog cable!? [Oct. 11th, 2005|08:17 pm]

Why the hell do I see MPEG artifacts during commercials on analog cable?

Is the new way to distribute commercials to studios via crappy MPEG files?

Lame. Not that I care about commercial quality much, but I hate this "digital" world being used to lower costs more than increasing quality. Kinda depressing.

I get fun compression artifacts over my shitty antenna. (they took away the free cable, and most of the stuff i would schedule to record was broadcast, so I get it off the internet instead... sometimes they say it's 'high definition')

at least the internet makes sure it doesn't look like complete ass most of the time
