    Shocking picture being transmitted by ITV2 tonight during the Liverpool game. Flicked over to ITV and the difference was amazing. Flicked over again to SS1 and SSX and it was better again.

    But as for ITV2, really shocking ! Must be one of the lowest bandwidth channels.

    Saying that, can't complain about the result !

    mate i was watching the same match (fellow kopite) and pleased with the result :D though a bit nervous second half

    anyhow back to the subject matter - you have to bare in mind that itv were showing pictures from chelsea whereas itv2 was showing pictures from a spanish broadcaster - i've always found the european games (with the exception of italian football) always pump out crap pictures

    not sure why - but the spanish footage wasn't even in 16:9

    Good to hear from a fellow Kopite ! Great result tonight, played really well in the first half but the second half was twitchy without a doubt.

    Back on topic, good point about the European broadcast but I remember watching ITV2 game against TNS and also the Super Cup Final on my Sony CRT and it was just as bad. Never seen a good PQ on any match on ITV2.

    And the reds go marching on, on, on! Not the prettiest second half, but we won.

    Anyway, I'm now watching Goldeneye on ITV2 and it looks pretty damned good - so am pretty sure it was the foreign broadcast...

    Channels like ITV2, ITV3 and ITV News transmit at a resolution of 544x576 instead of the more usual DVB resolutions of 720x576 or 704x576.

    You will never get a decent image on these channels.

    Even the standard resolution channels are using lower bitrates to squeeze into the available bandwidth.

    FreeView and SKY standard transmissions will get even worse and Plasmas only highlight this!

    The picture looked terrible on a crt can't imagine how bad it would look magnified on a 42" plasma.


    Great result despite a dodgy second half, we'll stuff them at Anfield.

    And we'll stuff the blue southern fairies when they make the trip up! :devil:
