Has anyone else noticed a picture improvement on ITV HD?

 

Not everything, I notice it most on the evening news and Emmerdale and last night River Monsters. 

 

I have Virgin Tivo

 

???

Maybe some of my new gear has run in - HD621 or Audioquest Pearl HDMI?

 

the news definitely looks much sharper - it's such a difference I thought maybe they had started broadcasting in 1080p

It's been since the new logo - the picture is much sharper as if is in 1080p on the news, Emmerdale looks better in a lot of scenes not all.  I don't see much tv at the moment because of work mostly so only see about 1 hour.

if most people watch via a receiver then it's likely the receiver is set to upscale the pic and maybe adding whatever infererence can be caused inside the busy box so maybe it won't notice.

I don't have any picture scaling, except what's in the Kuro - so all changes stand out now much more than before.
