Watching a delayed recording of this on DVB-T. The HD isn't that sharp but also I am only getting stereo when I thought it should be 5.1 audio?  Other's experiences?

Thanks

Not everything is DD5.1. The DD symbol is not there on the free view guide, so it's only meant to be stereo that one.

HD isn't sharp because it is NOT HD. Their previous advertising was misleading and plain wrong.

Spyware: HD isn't sharp because it is NOT HD. Their previous advertising was misleading and plain wrong.


Given the movie is not out in HD in any format, to broadcast HD and 5.1 they would have had to get a master tape from someplace - no idea where.

Interestingly I popped in my DVD of the movie into my PS3 and played the Pod racer sequence pretty much just after it was screened on TV. It wasn't quite as sharp as the DVB-T broadcast but it was 5.1 to be sure and that makes a huge difference IMHO

Mea culpa!  Watched the start of the recording and it say HD Stereo!  That's what happens when you do timeshift viewing

Just after "Along time ago..." in the opening "HD Stereo" pops up at the same time as the PGR rating.

So at broadcast TV3 aren't claiming the material is 5.1 but are claiming HD.

Uh, yes the movie is out on HD (1080p) I can't give you the source, but googling the right words will show you what i mean....

Preview of 1080p :
ep1
ep2
ep3

If I can get the HD 1080p one from somewhere im sure TV3 could of gotten it too, but it probably would cost them most :(

Most if not all film source DVDs have been transfered off film to 1080/24sf masters pretty much since DVDs came about. The studios have then generated SD submasters for DVD from that. An HD distribution for broadcasters is pretty much the norm for all movie releases.

Yes I had forgotten that. But why stereo only I wonder? Not as if there are no 5.1 tracks around that could be used.  i was toying with the idea of muxing in a 5.1 track from my DVD but alas that's NTSC so I would have to speed it up and also worry about TV3 might have edited out to fit their time slot.
