    It's not just our TV network

    Watched a few minutes of Clemson vs. UNC tonight and it looked like a VHS tape recorded in EP mode. Remember what that was like?

    kind of sad that in 2011 the picture quality is worse than what we had on 1979 tube tvs.

    You just lost half of your audience. Unfortunately I am intimate with this arcane terminology.

    Hell, I still use a VCR from time to time. Use that bad boy until it craps out.

    I agree with you. There has to be a logical explanation. Maybe it's because virtually every game is on TV now and they have more crews spread out covering more stuff and they have to make equipment last longer. That's the only logical explanation I can come up with.

    So you're saying all low budget productions suck compared to ESPN?

    Ours too. And it could only toggle back and forth between play/record and pause. No FF or RW.

    I was just bringing it up because several people have complained about the video quality on CTN-produced games this year. Even the mighty ACC with its own network has issues with video quality, was my only point.

    The first VCR my parents bought came with a free trip to the Bahamas. Prolly around 1988.
