Finally my local cable provider here in Holland does HDTV. They bring Discovery-HD and NGC-HD, something i wasn't able to receive on my satellite receiver (the Dutch satellite provider isn't "HD ready" yet). So i took the plunge for a HD cablebox next to my satellite box. Now my question; both feeds by the HDTV cable box are nice, but are not totally in the same ballpark as BBC-HD in terms of absolute sharpness. The bitrate seems ok, no MPEG4 compression noticable, but it is not as jaw dropping sharp as BBC-HD. Let's say BBC-HD by satellite is a ten, NGC and Discovery are a 7 to 9 (depending on the program). Sometimes it's close, but it will never be a ten. Is this something which is the fault of my cableprovider (or equipment), or are NGC and Discovery on satellite also not as sharp as BBC-HD?
