Blocky black picture

Hi. On recorded programmes on my V6 box the black in the pictures is awfully blocky.  Makes watching the TV very difficult. Has anybody else experienced this?

Re: Blocky black picture

Is this happening on live TV too?

Re: Blocky black picture

Hi.  Not that we have noticed. Seems to be just recorded programmes.

Re: Blocky black picture

See whether you spot it on live TV and/or pausing & rewinding live viewing.

Re: Blocky black picture

Hi. Live TV and pausing/rewinding look fine.

Re: Blocky black picture

If pausing/rewinding is fine, that suggests your hard drive is working ok.

If live TV is fine, that suggests your incoming TV signal is ok.

Your HDMI cable wouldn't differentiate between them.

I can only suggest there's a problem with those specific recordings... Out of interest, what're the programmes affected?

Re: Blocky black picture

Hi. Thanks for your advice. Seems to be all programmes with a dark background. Very bad when watching his dark materials which we have recorded.

Re: Blocky black picture

What's the iPlayer like?

I've got that recorded too, well Mrs japitts has. She's not watched it yet, so I can't comment on our PQ unfortunately.
