I have Direct TV and have not noticed any reduced quality. I do however have a small issue. I use the genie from Direct TV and for some reason when I fast forward I do get a progress bar and the video itself pauses. But once I hit play it has fast forward. Its a small annoyance as I don't use that feature very often.

I have noticed the picture quality is slightly worse than before when I had it going straight to the TV, but it's something I rarely ever notice.

it looks the same to me on my HD TV using my DirecTV HD Recievers and gold plated Vizio HDMI cables... I had it hooked up both ways as well.

When I first got my Xbox it looked horrible... but it turned out to be a setting on my TV. Some TVs have individual settings for each HDMI port, that setting being PC/Video source(basically RGB settings). Make sure the HDMI port your Xbox One is plugged into is set to PC, or the RGB range equivalent to PC. Apparently the console broadcasts as a PC device and not video. Once I fixed that the picture quality looked fantastic.
