I recorded The Open (Golf) on SKY Sport last night. It was advertised as "HD", but clearly wasn't. I was watching the highlights package today, and it clearly was HD. What gives?

My harddrive is 60% full, and the coverage was ~10hrs - is the HDi bright enough to know to down scale to fit? Or is something else going on?

What about tonights coverage?

Of course Sky CSOs couldn't give a toss.

Cheers

Rex
