I'm just wondering if anyone can help or has some advice.
I had multiroom fitted yesterday due to having to swap rooms around and after it had been completed I noticed that the picture quality is worse on my Bravia HD TV. A new cable wasn't installed, the original one which runs into another room was just split.
SD channels were always worse quality but the non paid for HD channels were always high quality (for example BBC News HD, Channel 4HD, ITV 1 HD etc.) They now have a bit of motion blur, distortion, high brightess / gamma and are no where near as sharp or crisp as they were. We then checked the installation and found this atatched to the skirting board: (there were no marks on the freshly decorated skirting board before the installation.)
We were told to leave the box to set itself up for 10 minutes and to call the engineer if it hadn't started after an hour. The box did not start up at all and after calling the engineer we were told to restart the box by powering off and on. The graphics on startup were poor quality too.
I tried altering brightness, contrast and gamma and although it helped slightly the picture is still less sharp. I never had to alter any settings on the TV in the other room using the other box so I tried swapping the boxes round but with no effect. I have also tried altering the video output settings and again there may be a tiny difference but not much better.
I'm really disappointed so any help is very much appreciated.
Welcome to our community and thanks for posting. Its disappointing to hear that since you've changed to multi room that your picture is not as crisp on your Bravia HD TV.
It is not unusual for us to split a cable when installing multi room, however this should not affect the picture quality you receive. Can we ask what additional boxes you had fitted?
With regards to your install, we do apologise that we have disturbed the paint on the skirting boards. Due to this will will send you a private message to take some details and pass this on to the area field manager to discuss this matter with your further.
