Re: [IA] Pace HD DVR

said by Anonymous:

in Des Moines there was no HD equipment at all for most of December. At this time they are completely out of HD equipment again. They have NONE.

This begs the Question: Why in the world would ANYONE want Mediacom TV Service? Am I the only one that hates SD video.

I don't mind SD. Only one of our four TVs is an HD set (and even that is only a 32 inch), with all the rest being older equipment with 27 inch or smaller screens. In trying to save money, including still using old VHS recorders instead of paying the extra for a DVR, SD is acceptable. SD really only looks crappy on an HD TV; on a older TV, it still looks fine. My beef with SD is with getting center-cropped content of HD programming, and not getting letter-boxed pictures, but that is not Mediacom's call and actually in the hands of the content provider to determine.
