I've been a sky customer for a while, but just today I got the MySkyHDi installed as well as multiroom.

No complaints with multiroom, it works fine.

MySkyHDi: I have a few questions.

Is it just me or is everything on TV3 upscaled ?

First thing I watched in HD was the FIFA u17 woman's footbal world cup game today, quality was mint, but when ever the action gets fast paced I gets lots of screen tearing. It's not major, I mean I doubt some randy would notice, but I specificly looked at teh details of the image and I could see lots of screen tearing I never got that using the normal sky reciever, is this normal, what can I do about it ?

TV3 - almost everything. They have a number of prime time shows in HD

Tearing - Shouldn't be happening. What screen and connection are you using with the HDi box.

I know I'm new here but can you pls start your own thread its totally off topic to the discussion at hand.

back on topic, Ive noticed this screen-tearing only happens with really fast action HD stuff. The SD is fine, the not fast HD is fine.

To watch HD you need the MySkyHDi box and the HD ticket, if you cannot afford the one off payment for the box, then you "rent" the box. That is what I am doing and the box with the HD ticket is $25 a month.

Maybe the screen tearing is to with resolution, its currently set to "auto" which is what the Sky technician set it to, should I change this to a resolution that handles fast action maybe better?
