    245 is up and running now. Stuart what do you mean it was already MPEG4? It was always MPEG 2 before today...

    245 certainly looks better than it did as MPEG2

    We can not judge TNT until we see true HD programming like Nascar and NBA. Golf looked like Stretched SD to me

    The golf WAS stretched 540i (PAL) BBC-TV coverage. Definitely not HD.

    Yeah, it looked weird; I thought it was PAL. It wasn't as bad a PAL conversion as the NFL game in London last year. Neon green grass! :rolleyes:

    You'll have to forgive me. I'll readily admit to understanding neithor MPEG4 nor brain surgery. But,. is there any reason why (my wife) and I think the picture is better on 75 ? (We're just now watching an old L&O) .... Commence laughter.
    Thanks

    It was PAL upconverted to HD. I saw the footage; it was weird to say the least.

    What was wrong with TNT during the Closer tonight? There were a bunch of static/glitches at the start of the show. Then the stream broke up completely for about 10 seconds. It appears to be an MPEG 4 issue, my HD-Tivo recorded the MPEG 2 stream without glitches.
