    Just saw Two Towers on Sky Movies and had a go at comparing Sky+ through RGB and my Yamakawa through DVI. I know there wouldn't have been a fair contest but by how much?

    I guess it is not until you see a good connection that you realise what a poor one is!

    Indeed, the Sky + one looks much better.

    This is why it's pointless me commenting on video quality: they look both of a muchness to me (full screen shots, the pip shots prove nothing IMHO).

    Someone care to point out the differences?

    Perhaps I haven't got the best camera in the world but SKy+ is definately not better! :confused:

    Look closer at the PIP and you can make out that Sky , on the right, is fuzzier and the colours are missing some blue!

    It might be because of the smaller size on the full screen shots but the hair on Gollums head shows this sharpness well.

    Is the DVI version from DVD, and the RGB version from Sky? not really a fair comparison if it is.

    I would have thought the bitrate from Sky would not be as good as from the DVD.

    Nothing wrong with the Fuji 2800, but they do compress the pics a lot, so we aren't really seeing here what you see there. I guess the TV is a higher resoltion than 600 x 450! :)

    Your dead right Laura it wasn't a fair comparison but I was watching the film on Sky thinking how good the picture was and then did the experiment by puting the DVD on at the same time.

    Just wanted to see how much of a difference there was. The Bit rates on the movie channels are the highest I think.

    Alan, as you say, just shows what a good job it's doing on the sky signal.
