Compression on HD TV

Yeah; what was your question?
I feel like the networks are transmitting HD but are starting to use some pretty strong compression to save money.

I am talking about big budget series like "Hawaii Five-O".
That's one of our shows, I work for CBS TV Studios. Are you watching off air, or via telco, cable or satellite? If it's telco, cable or satellite, are you using the analog outputs from the box, or the HDMI? (Some boxes have issues with the analog feed.)
CBS uses the full 19.39 Mbits/sec capacity of their ATSC channels for a single stream of HD, and they have requirements in the retrans agreements to make the cable and satellite services pass the full 19.39. They really do care about getting it right on the air.

But really, like our Canon camera user in another post today, we need to see it to diagnose the cause.
This is MPEG-2, yes?
