    I eagerly visited my father last night to view some HD footage from a TVDrive that had just been installed. I was quite dissapointed with the quality of footage i saw. He has a Bravia TV and the TV Drive was outputting 1080i.Has anybody viewed Blue Planet and what are peoples opinions?

    Is Blue PLanet not true HD and an upscaled conversion?

    Is the HDMI cable supplied of poor quality?

    Any thoughts.....

    I also had TVDrive installed yesterday, and even though Blue planet is very good quality (dvd quality) Pride is awesome and I have it connected by component! Even the wife was amazed by the clarity and colour, you should definetly view Pride.
