Don't know what you're all moaning about. I receive freesat in Germany with a Humax Foxsat HD PVR being fed off an 85cm dish and I am very satisfied with my picture. It's a lot better than my mother's freeview reception in the south of England. I think that the foxsat does a good job of upscaling the sd broadcasts to my LCD TV. BBC HD and ITV HD, though rare, really give a good picture.
I read a Freesat vs Freeview thread earlier where people were saying that many of the channels on freeview are better quality than the same on freesat, the above post disagrees with them and mentions upscaling something i assume freeview boxes are incapable of, is the post correct in saying freesat picture quality is better than freevew ?
