That's what I meant. If the problem were inherent in the software itself
we would be seeing a lot more complaints of this type.

While I can see the difference between Myth's output and "live" TV
almost nobody else can, unless they have the technical experience to
know what to look for.

Sometimes I yell and complain about severe macro-blocking on OTA HD
sports broadcasts while others in the room just say "What???".

I guess whoever decided that the general public would put up with such
artifacts was correct :-)
