There are several shows that are in HD and are not compressed. My dad is a digital cable subscriber but still switches to OTA when the show is available because cable has so many compression artifacts. I use OTA only but I am a hold-out. I just hate paying for programming that contains ads. I mean, isn't that what the ads are for?

Vote with your wallet; cancel your cable subscription if your cable company is re-compressing the stream.

Here in SoCal, Cox promised to never recompress the raw signal they get from the networks, so whatever we see is the network's fault, not theirs.

If you think the system is working, ask someone who's waiting for a prompt.

Working...
