    IF the Pixelation you are talking about is the bloacky digital distortion you get when watching some of the (more highly compressed) channels... which it sounds like it is... is is somthing you have to live with i am afraid

    For those channels that broadcast in High Def the difference will be stunning assuming you have a display that will do it justice.

    However 90% of the current channels on Dsat will not be broadcasting in HD for many many years, standard def channels are going to be around a long time especially those that do not have programming filmed in HD or really worth upconverting.
