This morning I bought a digital optical cable so as to get the HD programming in 5.1 audio...at the moment everything still seems to be in stereo. However the background music in setup mode is definitely 5.1...???
Anyone else having the same problem? I'm 90% sure I have all the settings correct. Any help appreciated as I am certainly no tech genius.
I still think the movie channels looks like upscaled SD to me. What do others think?
I still think the movie channels looks like upscaled SD to me. What do others think?If they were upscaled wouldn't all the movies be advertised as HD? I would guess the ones without HD logo are upscaled. I'm happy with TV3 picture but I only have 32" TV. Differences might show up more with larger TV.In my opinion upscaled SD does not equal HD -- so hopefully they aren't doing that.I think the whole "HD" logo on the info-bar and in the program synopsis is a work-in-progress at Sky -- even movies screening on Sky Movies 2 are listed as HD and it isn't even an HD channel!I wouldn't go by the program synopsis at all, but maybe the info-bar. The info-bar does not indicate any of the movies I've checked out as being HD, despite the synopsis saying "HD" in it.
JonoNZ: HD Sport looks pretty good on Sky Sport 1 and 2, the movies do not look that great -- certainly no where near Blu-ray (I don't expect it to be as good as Blu-ray), or even HD movies on TV3 via Freeview HD.I still think the movie channels looks like upscaled SD to me. What do others think?
dupka: I had my install yesterday. I've got a 40" X Series Bravia and overall I'm pretty happy with HD. Simple installation for me that took about 30 mins all up, including moving the old MySky (download took the longest).
The movies in HD look pretty good (you really can't trust the guide which ones are HD!). The 5.1 has been just as good either by HDMI throughy my SONY receiver or by optical out.
