    Hi all after having hd installed for a few weeks now i can say the improvement is massive on hd and sd programs!:thumbsup:

    I have also noticed that programs that are offered in hd are of better quality even on the sd channel the England game tonight for instance is a great picture on itv

    is it that the game is filmed in hd and offers a overall better experience?

    I have the new amstrad box by the way quite as a whisper to !

    Are your eyes decieving you? I have Sky HD and believe me the SD pictures of this game are shocking!!.. If you think that they are good wait until you see a game in proper HD.

    i looked and saw the game was on in HD on ITV HD (lj's site got it wrong i guess)
    when i saw it wasnt on on ITV HD, I looked on ITV SD and alas sawit was in 4:3 and such a shocking picture i resorted to supersports 1 . At least it was a widescreen feed and slightly better quality than ITV. The OP is either on a windup, a heroin come down or is amazingly easy to please

    I agree with the OP , not necesarily about the England game but I reckon programs that are broadcast in HD do look better when viewed in SD than a normal SD program . Also it depends on the tuner aswell , my Panasonic TV gives a much better picture than my Humax PVR

    I admit the quality of the england game did deteriorate as it moved onto the match but it was just the program that came to mind as i started the thread i have since tested both my new box and old with and the same parameters and there is def a improvement if the program is being broadcast elsewhere in hd!!!

    Well before the drugs kick in anyhow:smashin:
