Olympic viewing comparison

Not sure which forum to post this in,so feel free to move it..

We just had a Sony KDLS5100 HDTV with a Bell sattellite receiver installed at work (to keep up to date on news and weather.Really !! ) .
Of course we have been watching the Olympics on CTV-HD since 6 am.

At home I have a Sony KDLW4100 and Shaw Digital cable.
I watched a lot of The Olympics at home too.

The S5100/Bell PQ is not as sharp.It's quite soft and almost blurry.I have tried some basic calibrations , and it's a little better.I'm guessing it's mainly the TV.
One nice thing has been the lack of picture and sound drop-outs on Bell compared to Shaw.However it's a lot easier to surf CTV,SNETW,TSN on Shaw , (Channel 210,211,212) ,than on Bell. I'm a new Bell user , so that might change.

Still, it's great to be able to watch TV at work now !

KDLW4100,BDP-S550,Wii,PS3,Shaw DCT 3416 HDPVR with 1TB exHDD,ATV2,Mission M2V 5.1 ,Klipsch RW-10D sub,HTR4063)

Have you called in to activate channels 995 - 999 on your Bell HD receiver at work? The picture there is stunning and channels are all in a row and easy to navigate. Please see the "what is Bell doing for Olympics" thread already started in this forum.
