    Hi all,

    Looking for input on a problem with sky HD picture quality , tried on 2 different LED tv's LG, and a Samsung- picture is perfect via USB, Blu Ray, Console, but via Sky HD only it has this strange grid/patchwork pattern over the image, and it did not have this previously!

    All settings on the box have been changed to no avail.

    A few members on sky forums suggested possible blame to an update the the EPG.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    What size area of the screen is shown there?
    That looks like pixels to me.

    That is a close up of screen top left, had to reduce pic size as the file sizes were too big.

    It looks like pixels when you are viewing a SD picture on a HD TV.

    A fair bit of noise there- and colour bleed- do you think just due to harsh Dynamic setting it is on?

    Looks less problematic in standard, or even Dynamic with contrast turned down.

    thanks again

    Orange skin tone (which seems to be there) is an indicator that settings are too harsh.
    BBC HD outdoor shots tend to be good for checking colour settings unless you have good wildlife Blu-rays
