Re: Sky football picture

The hub wouldn't have any impact on your TV picture, broadcast channels don't use the internet.

Just to confirm, you're only having a problem with Sky Football HD on Ch503? Blurring would normally be a TV setting in many cases. Are other football games across the sports channels similarly affected?

Re: Sky football picture

Hi. Only the sky football chamells. I watched a BT and also a Prime game whice is normally the worst of.all. but they were good quality. Close up pictues are fine. Only distance cameras and it seems to go a fuzzy. And as i say only noticed it when changed my hub.  You say the hub has nothing to do with it but the hub feeds the TIVO 6 BOX doesrnt it ?

Re: Sky football picture

The TV channels are fed to the V6 directly through the coaxial wiring and not via the internet..

The V6 only uses the internet to populate the TV guide, and for catch up, on demand and box updates.

Re: Sky football picture

Hi Timcarter,

Thanks for responding and welcome back to the community!

As stated above our broadband and TV connections are fed through different channel points.

From reviewing your account I can see you have multiple boxes, some of which have high uptime.

Would you be able to reboot your box and check to see if the cables are securely fastened into the TV box for me?

Please let us know how you get on. 

Thanks,

Kain

Re: Sky football picture

A setting of 2160p means that the V6 is doing all the upscaling. Try these settings so that content such as HD is passed through to the TV.

  • 2160p
  • 2160p 24/25/30fps (pass-through)
  • 1080p 24/25/30fps (pass-through)
  • 1080i
