Re: Sky Sports HD Poor Quality

I absolutely notice a difference in picture quality between BT Sports HD and Sky Sports HD.  Sky Sports HD is barely better than SD quality.  I do hope Sky Sports UHD isn't to far away and it won't cost us an arm and a leg to upgrade.

Something's wrong with your setup if that's the case! What're your video output settings, for starters?

Re: Sky Sports HD Poor Quality

Hi thanks for your reply.

I have 2160p, 2160p (pass through), 1080p, 1080p (pass through) and 1080i selected.

Re: Sky Sports HD Poor Quality

Is it any better if you untick 2160? It would mean your TV upscales from 1080, perhaps worth experimenting with.

Although I'm minded towards a dud cable if you get that bad a picture from Sky HD.

Re: Sky Sports HD Poor Quality

Hi HavencroftKev,

It might be worthwhile experimenting with the different display settings.

have you tried letting the TV do the upscaling rather than the V6? 

Some people just have the 1080p and 1080p (pass through) selected on their V6

Others like myself with a 4K TV only have 2160p and 2160p (pass through) selected and for me the picture is the same on Sky Sports and BT Sports.

Re: Sports HD Poor Quality

I will try messing around with the settings.

I'm not convinced about the cable change though as BT sports HD is superb quality as is all other HD channels.

It is just Sky Sports HD that I find dodgy.
