An option if you like over-cooked picture quality I guess, but I'll pass. This type of "enhancement" can't bring back lost detail, and in fact with high quality sources can hurt fine detail.

That's interesting to hear since I'm using the Prime. What firmware/drivers are you using with the Prime? What about SageDCT version.

I'm surprised there hasn't been more discussion of this. I'm seeing it too, and as far as I can tell it's just an extender problem. I'm also using SageDCT, but with an HDHRPrime. The video is OK if I...

Sage's channel preview doesn't work with SageDCT/HDHRPrime, so don't assume that means there is still something wrong.

It's on a HD300 extender, so no mouse control involved. First time it happened, I'm pretty sure I made the mistake of hiding a command that currently had focus. Once I realized what happened, I went...
