OH is watching a Sky+'d episode of Silent Witness on atm. (Standard Def, recorded Friday 6th)

The picture quality is absolutely abysmal - compression blokko vision all over it whenever the picture gets the slightest bit busy.

Has the bit rate been dropped down recently, because its verging on unwatchable.....

Was it recorded from 11817V or 11992H? Bit rate on 11817V seems typical for an SD channel, and 11992H just a tad lower. Hi speed panning seems ok too.

No idea - the UK version on the Sky box.

Things OH has watched since seem to be ok - this one must be bad as she was the one that commented on it - I was doing the washing up :D

Bad isnt it - looks like a low budget Italian channel on 13E

:-rofl2

Yes! Just what I was thinking.

The reason why I wondered if the box was playing up was I've seen similar effects on corrupt video files on the computer.
