    Anyone else seen this?

    http://www.skyhd.com/data/SkyHD_Intro.wmv

    Did a search for SkyHD in google to see if there were any new details and came accross this.

    Korean, but clearly a taste of things to come. If you look at the Sky HD.com website there is a TVGuide which seems to closely mirror the SKy format (family package mentioned, things like that).

    Take a butchers......Apologies if this has been brought up before.

    Intersting dilemma.
    How to demo HD to an net audience in a positive manner?

    Well it's certainly not to release a 738*416 resolution wmv media file running at 1000kbps:)

    If you want to know what HD can look like then the clips offered by MS using wmv are a far better example and even then I still consider wmv to be inferior to mpegII judging on the retail discs I have watched compared to the TS captures I have seen.

    I wonder if BSKYB will be a little annoyed if they couldn't or didn't register SKY as a brand:)

    Indeed hardly startling - but interesting nonetheless.
    I can play this one on my 1.5 GHz laptop ; the other one stutters like anything on the laptop but plays reasonably on my 3 GHz desktop (using VLC in both cases) .
    There's still a little residual stutter from the Sky_720_Test one on the desktop .
    Might work better with that new Elecard codec but their latest codec has issues with my DVBapps program that I use with 2 different satellite tuner cards and I am not sure if I can have both the old and new Elecard codecs available (registered) on the same PC simultaneously :-(
