Sky + HD 1TB Box (Russ Andrews upgrade) - Q for WhatHiFi - resolution testing while testing
While testing Sky + HD 1TB Box (Russ Andrews upgrade) did you find picture improvements across all sky resolution box setting i.e with the box set to Auto and 1080i.
I will be sending HDMI signal through a Onkyo (N3007) reciever which has a quality upscaler in. At present I get the best picture when Sky box resolution is set to Auto, allowing reciever / TV (philips 21:9 TV) to do all the scaling. My question is, If I buy upgraded box would the Auto resolution setting still be the best option or will the upgrade only make a difference to picture quality if Sky box is set to 1080i (not ideal as scaler in reciever and TV are better quality than the sky internal scaler). I will be using Optical connection for sound so would not be a issue with regard to HDMI connection. Thanks for any info.
