I have noticed that programmes I've watched through the Humax Youview box on iplayer show a discernable improvement in quality over those previously on the BT Vision 2.0 box.
I'm aware that online the iplayer gives you the choice of watching a programme in standard definition or high definition or am wondering if through Youview it naturally defers to HD given the box is capable.
The improvements I've noticed are a much more stable image in terms of colour, tone and smoothness. Whilst before on the BT Vision box you could at times clearly see pixelated detail, especially within blacks and shadows.
Wondered if anybody else had any thoughts are can say whether iplayer would show HD as an automatic choice?
Not sure if the YouView box does this but our tv checks the current bandwidth and scales the quality accordingly. Most of the time the picture is fantastic even in SD. Will be very interested to see how the YouView box compares.
