Got Virgin installed last week after switching from Sky. We got the v6 box along with Sky Cinema. Most of the channels on the v6 are fine quality wise however when watching any of the sky cinema HD channels I feel there is a definite drop in quality. The picture appears abit washed out and flat, abit like an illegal stream from the Internet. Now I'm not saying the picture quality is terrible or unwatchable however I would say it's definitely below the quality of other channels. Does anyone else have a similar problem?
thanks for getting back. I've checked video output settings and are set at 2160 p as recommended by V6 box. I don't think the settings are the problem anyway as the playing HD movies from other channels does not give a problem, it's only the Sky Cinema channels that have poor picture. If you have any other suggestions let me know.
My belief is that Sky broadcasts its HD content at 1080i, so if you set your V6's video output to 1080i only, then the content is passed through to your TV for upscaling to 2160p. If the display is still rather poor, then see if some configuation settings of your TV can improve it.
