i noticed yesterday that snwhd,223 here wasn't in hd. phoned shaw today and same in edmonton but i'm the 1st to call. i was told it was the broadcaster's issye.
is this everywhere?
If it is a broadcaster's issue, it will be everywhere.
Is it still happening for you? I'm in Calgary and see HD on 223 as 1080i.
nope 480i still. so edmonton and winnipeg so far. shaw guy said they wouldn't pursue this w/sportsnet.
Something with Shaw then... It should be the same feed from the station going everywhere
shaw doesn't agree. i hope a rep here will look into this.
Someone should be looking at it... Oh well...
All of our mods are on the west coast, but I've checked on a slingbox and it does look like it's in 4:3 not 16:9. I'll see if I can get some more details for you.
thanks. just to reiterate the shaw rep on the phone from edmonton checked and confirmed 223 was broadcasting in sd.
According to video operations, the content on Sportsnet West HD at the moment is just not HD; the channel is still being broadcast in HD itself. Not all content on HD channels is actually HD, although of course most of it will be.
Can you check again at a later time to ensure HD content is being played on 223?
The Arsenal vs Liverpool game? It is in HD here.. 1080i...
That game should be in HD, yes. I've checked on our slingbox again and it's showing in HD. meltrc can you confirm?
So, to confirm, Video Operations people say it is a 480i feed from Sportsnet, but we are watching it in 1080i HD?
that can't be right. 223 and 224 are showing same game at half and look identical to me.
i got a quick look at liv/arse before half and it appeared to be normal hd signal.
It may be that Sportsnet West and Sportsnet One are showing the same game. I'm waiting right now to check on that. Glad to hear it's in HD for you now. Video operations did not mention that there was a period of time where the channel was SD. The feeds we receive are direct from the broadcaster though and not modified on our end.
still doesn't explain me and shaw edmonton seeing sd at the same time as kevin in calgary and mission,b.c.guy were seeing hd.
they showed same game at the half only.
thanks for looking into this.
this started yesterday and as kevin and a guy on another forum in mission, b.c. says they are seeing hd so your info is not accurate.
it's now in hd so yay but why a day of sd here?
