I don't think the stadium at Man Utd helps. It doesn't allow much light in and hence makes it difficult to provide good quality pictures during daytime.

Hi All

Personally speaking as a Fulham supporter, I now wish I had watched it on ITV rather than in HD, then I would not have seen at all the anialation we recieved:mad: :eek:

So far I have been impressed with Sky's HD football coverage. One small irritation to me is the score graphics which for some inexplicable reason have been increased in size and are still indented from the left hand edge of the picture. If they can manage to place the channel dog at the extreme right hand edge of the HD channels why can't they do the same with the clock and the score. If anything the size should be reduced as its much clearer in HD anyway.

I think the DOG is generated as the channel is played out, whereas the score and other captions are an integral part of the coverage, are generated at the venue, and are common between the SD and HD channels.

The steadicam filming from the side of the pitch in the Man Utd game was standard resolution, not HD. All other cameras were HD, though.

The 'recording interrupted' message might inducate a card pairing issue.

We got this message on screen on our Sky + being used as multiroom when we tried to watch old recordings after the card had been moved and paired to th HD box.

To watch them I had to move the card from the HD box into the Sky + box and they would play. Had to move the card back afterwards but the interrupted message on screen had indicated that the card was not now in the Sky + box that had been in there when the programme had been recorded.

Pity someone cannot think up messages that actually tell you what is going on as this one meant nothing to me at the time either.

Hi all - Question on subscription:

Am I right in thinking that as a Sky Sports and HD and PremPlus season ticket holder I will not be expected to pay agin to watch PremPlus in HD - I notice the games are on Box Office 756 and when I select the channel it checks purchase information? Admittedly the show does not start for another 3 hours.

Surely SKY cannot expect MORE cash for PremPlus in HD can they??? :nono:

Cheers, Mark

The quality does seem lower on the prem plus game - most notable on the grass. On BBC HD it was crisp and its blothchy on SS HD. Its still vastly better than the SD we have put up with for years !

Another poster (sorry for forgetting his name:) ) offered the reason as being the wireless links for the HD steadycams are not upto the job and without a fixed cable link (as in Germany) SKY are being forced to use SD cams.

The camera behind the goal looked a bit iffy as well and once the match was over the shots of the players and crowds dropped significantly at least to my eyes.

I assume it's one of those 'jib' camera's or whatever they're called don't if there's a similar technical reason it's SD.

Is it just me or is the picture quality of games on the Sky Sports SD channels worse than last season? :confused:

Yehh obviously I know that once you've watched HD, SD is always going bad :rolleyes: but still i'm pretty sure it was better last season. Am I imagining this?!? :eek:

lol helpppppp this is really nagging me now! :rolleyes:

I have also noticed that the picture quality on the SkySports SD broadcasts has dropped, last season the PQ was superb which i put down to them experimenting with the HD cameras, this season so far its been pretty poor.
