Play TV picture quality

Just bought Play TV from Currys £39.99 - bargain. However, after setting up my picture quality is definitely worse than standard Freeview. Is this because the aerial is not plugged directly into the TV? Are there any specific settings i need to adjust on ps3 to improve the picture?
any help appreciated :thumbsup:

I've found PlayTV to have a fantastic picture on my 46" Panny Plasma :thumbsup:

What TV are you using and how is it connected?

What output settings/resolution do you have the PS3 set at?

The upscaled picture on PlayTV on my set up is better than on standard freeview (upscaled by the TV itself of course) through my TV's own tuner.

The quality should be pretty similar really. I would say it just about has the edge over my inbuilt turner.

The update when you install Play TV is one of the best hidden options on any software ever - It should have been a puzzle on the new Professor Layton game....

The quality on my tv is better than the built in tuner....

It looks amazing remotely linked to my psp as well !!!

Freeview on the bog !!!

:oops:sorry

when i go into the play tv menu, there is a small revolving dotted circle indicating an uodate available. how do i update? i have done a full set up again but still have the symbol. i can't see a play tv specific update option anywhere in the menus. it shows i am running version 1.00.
:lease:
