The JPEG pixelation is usually an indication of a degraded signal.  
Either you cable is flakey or the satellite feed is weak.

As I said in an earlier post, true HDTV is actually pretty good.  A lot 
of the junk in the big box stores is not true HD.  I don't suggest 
running out to buy anything but if you're near a decent TV joint, take a 
look at some of the higher end stuff.  The quality is there.

Most of the network stuff is HD.  A lot of the local stuff, spots, etc, 
hasn't made the transition yet.  As much as I despise football, seeing 
the blades of grass or the beads of sweat on the player's foreheads was 
pretty amazing.  Watching CSI:  Deluth was pretty cool.  Reruns of MASH 
on the same set looked like crap.
