    It might just be me, but has anyone noticed the quality of Sky Digital's picture degrading recently, i swear it's not the same quality as it was even just a few months ago.

    Im convinced Sky One inparticular is suffering, and sure you can see articacting as you would with a video cd sometimes?

    anyone else noticed this?

    SKY1 on SKY digital?

    Any particular programs, US imports suffer from poor conversions at times especially late on in a season when the lead time is short.

    Right, Im just watching ITV1 at 3.30pm on Tuesday the 4th June, and the picture quality of this program (The Queens Jubilee : Palace Fireworks) and the picture quality is terrible!

    The artifacts are in abundance, there seems to be an aura around everyone and everything.

    Agreed.
    BBC1 has been particularly poor in recent months. (especially during Eastenders). Although that could just be Dot Cotton !!
    I'm glad others have spotted this, 'cause every time i see a poor picture i leap up from my favourite armchair to fiddle with the telly to try and improve things. (and yes, you've guessed it, i always make it look even worse - doh !)
    ;)

    It's starting to get absolutely pants and it's particularly bad today. Everything looks like they've upped the compression rate 100 fold :( (I use DTTV not Sky or Cable).

    Like Bluetyler I am also on NTL and agree BBC2 has gone pants and some of the 5KY channels that used to be ok have also gone a lot worse.
