i think its a provider problem which depends on your location
so its kind of the quality your provider can give your depending on your house compared to the provider
like my friend has so many problems with CBC HD that when he watches it half the time it freezes to a black screen, my other friend has no problems and they're both using Rogers, its just where your house is in relation to the provider, it might even just be the cable wiring in your house

I think using a splitter affects it too - the strength of the signal and whatnot. I may be wrong.

With my Cogeco Motorola box, I get a better picture with the box set to 1080i instead of 720p. I tested using a PVR'd Breakfast Television. That's a good show to test because it's live, has a lot of static images, and doesn't have a picture tone to it. Just normal colours.

The type of cable can effect things as well as a splitter, but it shouldn't be an enormous difference. The developers that wired my house used real cheap-ass cable, and I have it split off for my internet, and it works fine - but I'm sure the effect with a dying box became magnified with that setup.

You are miss understanding what I am saying...

If he is using 1080i & he is still having problems with pixels then he should trade in his box because there is probably something wrong with it...

Yes 1080i works better with todays broadcast TV because it uses Progressive scan lines meaning it shows you one line of pixels then the next which is pretty much invisible to the naked eye...720p doesn't which causes more pixel problems when there is fast movement on your screen.

CBC HD was unwatchable for me on rogers. It would be pixelated and then would turn grey. I got a thicker wire to connect to the hd box and a better splitter. My internet speed went up too. Splitter and wiring is the key (unless your builder used cheap wire in the ground, which you can't really change by yourself.)
