I haven't noticed this before but Transformers is on Sky Movies right now, playing on my HD TV (in SD).



I have seen Transformers in HD on this TV, and in seeing some action scenes today I notice HORRIBLE pixellation. I'm talking blocks as big as a child's palm.



What's going on here?

Sky UHF is analog and you can't compress an analog signal. Its source being a digital stream that is converted to analog will simply be the equivalent DVB-S mpeg2 stream on Sky digital. All Sky digital SD channels are compressed to buggery and look like crap so what you are watching is normal Sky behaviour.
