Hey just wondering if anyone has herd something on if or when Fiber Op HD quality will be improved... i presently have both Aliant and rogers TV service but i have had to remove everything but basic service off Aliant and switch rogers to my main as compared to rogers HD especially on sports it is pretty bad... i mean i only have rogers for the few channels Aliant doesn't have plus you get Aliant TV dirt cheap in the bundle so i wanted to drop rogers and just get those shows off the net (Netflix ect.) but just can't justify it at the moment as on my 55" Phillips Aliant looks pretty bad... anyone got any info?

I'm rocking HDMI and 5.1 Optical connected to Samsung equipment. The only oddity I've noticed was no audio when I turned my PVR on. Pausing or changing channels brought sound back. This stopped happening upon a reboot of the box. Picture wise, no issues or quality problems yet.
Based on all the threads on this board BEV has the best HD Quality (haven't watched a TV with it thus far for comparisons), but I previously had Rogers HD and I can say there's not too much difference in quality moving to Aliant's IPTV.

Depends how nit picky you wanna be about the matter :) To me they're about the same unless you're looking for issues.
I'd be curious to see a list of people having issues and the brand of TV they're using since we seem to have a mixed bag of replies in this thread.

Looks likes Sports channels are the most problematic at quick glance. I'll check out a sports broadcast over the weekend to see if there are any quality issues (keep in mind I switched from Rogers and not BEV).

For starters, I'm running Fiber OP 2.0 on two Samsung Plasmas. If this is something worth tracking in a separate thread let me know and I'll gladly start one for data collection.

I may have mentioned this before, but the installers who hooked up my service mentioned they had minimal issues with Samsung and LG TVs. Other brands were either hit or miss from what they implied.

Yes, but to what were they referring? PQ or the HDMI issue?
Now that ya mention that, I think it may have been with HDMI issues and not PQ. That pretty much negates a chunk of my post haha.

I'd have to agree with you though. The quality debate is pretty subject in most cases.

After we decide on what we are going to do, we convince ourselves it was the right decision.
It's funny you mention that, cause that's how I ended up on Fiber OP. ;) I hummed and hawed if it was the right move and here I am!
