Not going to happen anytime soon - the recession has seen to that.

No-one in their right mind can fail to appreciate the superior picture quality offerred by HD transmissions, when viewed on a decent sized screen.
Like all new and good things we often have to pay for them.
saying HD is a fricky??? Ripoff is complete nonsense.
But as you say, having all transmissions HD as standard, now that would be nice.
Do you remember how much the 1st DVD players cost, or how much the first Blurays machines were? As the technology progresses and is more widely used, costs come down. Let's hope it does for HD TV too.
To be honest from the HD Ive seen on display in various shops around the area Im not impressed either. Theres certainly not the "wow thats fantastic" factor which the tv adverts would have you believe.aileen said:I can hardly see any difference. SD or HD
Exactly - I resisted for ages owing to less than favourable remarks on the Forums, but when I took the plunge, the differences were (and still are) truly remarkable.johnsattuk said:Specsavers
All I can say, is that is exactly what I said when I first plugged my new Technomate HD into the new HD telly.Analoguesat said:"wow thats fantastic
Sorry, you're quite right to bring the thread back on line.Vipersan said:The new white sly card can be cleared using a diablo cam running Horizons firmware ..
..I can only confirm functionality with the FTV card ...but no reason to suggest it wont work with full subs..
Probably is!PaulR said:C4 HD is FTV but not FTA - which is what I think you mean.
Funny thing is, I can get BBC HD, and ITV1 HD(when there is a programme), but not Channel4 HD.PaulR said:BBC HD and ITV HD are both FTA (free-to-air) and can be received (albeit with difficulty in the case of ITV HD) on most FTA HD receivers without the use of a card as they are not encrypted.
I have now found C4 hd, and it is indeed encrypted. I have a Diablo CAM, and a $ly yellow house card from an expired contract (It works in a $ly box) I will see how to get it working.PaulR said:C4 HD is encrypted in Videoguard and can only be decrypted in a receiver with a Videoguard CAM and suitable card, hence it is FTV (free-to-view). Any card that allows reception of the $ly 3 channel will do but in practice only $ly's own HD receiver will work. There are some CAMS around which currently work emulating Videoguard but they are expected to cease working soon when $ly finally switch off the old yellow house cards.
