Re: Ch5USA needs to go HD

The episode of NCIS shown yesterday @ 10pm on 5-USA (if this is what you're referring to) was first broadcast in January 2004.

It's similar to Wentworth Prison in concept - filmed in HD, but Viacom (who have the UK rights) broadcast it on an SD-only channel. It's available via OnDemand in HD - ok, it's for a 30day expiry unlike recordings, but a valid workaround.

Personally, I don’t record from 5USA.

What I do, as a TV 360 user, is set up a Watchlist for the program, say Wentworth, and watch from Catch Up from this Watchlist when available. The Catch Up material is in HD.

Re: Ch5USA needs to go HD

Fair point about never recording from SD-only channels (BBC regional excepted).. A V6 lets you do the same by setting a series-link to include "Recordings & streaming videos". A recording will always take priority, but it makes the VoD asset that little easier to access. Or even force "HD only" and it won't record any SD, but just create bookmarks in "My shows". You pays your money and takes your pick.

It's what I've done for the past few series. Does mean you've gotta be careful with the 30day expiry if you're away for a fortnight or so, but all the same.
