Hi all, I have Digital TV with a Nextbox 3. Picture quality has always been really good for the last few years, but in recent weeks, I’ve noticed a fairly substantial improvement across multiple channels. Colours pop more and resolution seems higher. Has Rogers started upconverting and broadcasting in 1080p?
Rogers sends out what they receive from the broadcasters, which for HD is 720P and 1080i, depending on the channel. I believe some on-demand may be 1080P. Here's an FAQ on the topic:
Perhaps you inadvertently changed the settings on your TV, or perhaps are now viewing a different input on the TV which may be adjusted differently. Here's a post on optimizing your TV:
I just checked the diagnostics and CBC is 720P and Crave is 1080i.
Sometimes I've seen a TV firmware update change the colour saturation, or other picture setting. If you have your TV set up for auto-updates, that may be the cause. I actually hate it when they make such changes to the TV's picture because I need to go back and recalibrate.
