Sky HD Playback Not As Good As Sky +


Standard Member
A lot of work has been done to the Sky+ software over the years, with many upgrades, means things are pretty well sorted. Sky HD is much more demanding, with c. X4 the bitrate, and they have had a much shorter time to develop it. So no surprise it is less smooth.

Much more important though, it works very well, even if it still has some minor glitches, which can all be cured by a full reboot, ie power off, power on. Not so hard, even for a non techie.

So less moaning please. You'll make people think its rubbish, when actually its brilliant.

I’ll no doubt get use to it, I just found it quite strange after my Sky + hopefully it is a software issue rather then actual hardware, but I'm over the moon with the picture quality and the DD sound as well. thanks
