YouView+ Picture Quality is awful!

I just got BT infinity 2 installed today
The youview+ box is connected VIA HDMI to my Sony Bravia TV and the quality is awful. Whats worse is... I cant even change the quality. I am on input 3 - HDMI. When I press the OPTIONS buttin so I can change the quality nothing happens. So Im stuck with this horrible picture thats way to dark and dull.
How can I get it so I can edit teh image options on a Sonyt Bravia TV?
Thank you

Switch to a different input or built in tuner, you should then be able to access the tv menu's.
Look for and disable 'HDMI control' within the tv menus
you should then be able to switch back to the youview imput/source and then access the tv menu's to adjust the picture/mode to your liking.
It's not a fault with the youview box, more a quirk with bravia tv's
Is it by any chance about 5/6/7 years old ish?

  • I am attempting to convert 8mm video cassettes to dvd using a video cassette player, elgato video capture with rca/usb connections to the mac, editing in imovie and burning on idvd. The picture quality is awful. What can I do?????

    I am attempting to convert 8mm video cassettes to dvd using a video cassette player, elgato video capture with rca/usb connections to the mac then editing in imovie and burning dvd-r using idvd. The picture quality is awful. What can I do??????

    At what point is the video quality bad?  Is it bad on capture?  I would recommend using an s-video 1394 firewire converter instead.  They capture the video at a higher bit rate.  If you have a lot of 8mm tapes to capture, invest in a stand alone DVD recorder.  They capture and compress in one shot.  If you need to rip it back from the DVD into iMovie again, I would recommend using DVDxDV.

  • Return of iPlayer - Picture Quality

    Over the weekend, My Vision box crashed, because BT downloaded my box a dodgy iPlayer update to cure the severe volume problem. Now the update has been fixed and my box is up and running again.
    Sundays MOTD is now on there, so I decided to watch it. But the picture quality is awful. Like I'm watching a homemade video on youtube. It's a perfect stream but of low quality. Fuzzy low def picture that goes all blocky when theres a lot of action going on.
    Has anyone else found this to be the case? 
    (Note - to anyone else who lost their service over the weekend (and there are many) if you call Vision customer service you will get a refund for all the downtime).

    I have a HomeHub 2 and a phone thingy that was bundled free. This phone has never ben used as I don't know anyone else who has one.
    My question is, when I'm relived of the burden of being a BT customer in a few weeks, will my homehub or hubfone be of any use on a proper network or should I just bin them?

  • How to get good picture quality on a burned DVD slideshow using IDVD?

    After producing a slideshow on IDVD from either jpg or psd photos, it looked great when I played the project. Picture quality was excellent. When I burned a DVD to share the slideshow with a friend and when I played this on the same computer, it had lost resolution and looks awful. I am using best quality but this made no difference. On a hdtv using a standard player, the quality is mediocre. Is there any way to get a decent picture quality. I have also burned a DVD and CD from the IPhoto album, and the quality is better. IPhoto will not burn a slideshow or at least I do not know how to. Can you produce decent quality DVD using IDVD or is there a better application to produce decent DVD of photo slideshows?

    ....or is there a better application to produce decent DVD of photo slideshows?
    Yes. It's called DVDSP (apple's top of the line DVD Authoring application). It has a much longer learning curve than iDvd and is more $$$ but it does work well. The Help Menu alone is over 640 pages long. However, is this app significantly better than iDvd solely in terms of visual quality?.... No.
    But it does offer many more tools to address visual artifacts on the finished DVD, more audio control, much better control of durations per slide, audio, buttons that work as expected, among other things. (for additional examples of this see chapter 12 of the DVDSP Help Menu / starting on p. 373).
    Short of DVDSP, and much less money, you can also try these 2 third party apps which come highly recommended on this iDvd Forum:
    At the moment most macs do not yet support burning to Blueray (which does offer much better results). Once this technology is more commonplace, then I believe we will see a significant improvement in what you are trying to do above.
    Hope this is helpful but if not just come on back.

  • On Demand picture quality....shocking

    Hi all, first time poster as only just started with BTVision. Everything seems fine, except the picture quality of the On Demand section - its awful. Blocky, jerky, pixellated - considering its a large part of what we pay for, im distinctly underwhelmed.
    Also - where are the HD programmes? Before i joined there was a list of available programmes such as Planet Earth in HD...i sure as hell cant find any, many 2 or 3 films at £5 a go - where are Terminator/Star trek etc as listed on the website?
    If this is good as it gets, i'll be heading back to Sky ASAP.

  • BT Sport Picture Quality has the quality been set ...

    I'm enjoying watching the Norwich v Aston Villa match by mirroring it from my Apple TV to my 42 inch screen . I have no blocking issues with picture now which means that the capacity issue has been relsoved thanks. Looking at the players close up the picture quality is "good" but when the picture zooms out and when you have small people on the screen the quailty of the picture moves to "low" (Large areas of constant green).
    Looks like some form of picture quality algorithm is being used to reduce the image quality.
    Can BT please comment on this please?
    If the quality can be improved a little more I would appreciate that.

    - do have HD channels 101 to 104 but thought they were delivered via Freeview; there is no problem with the picture on these channels.
    No, on a BT Vision+ box channels 101-104 are HD channels delivered over the Infinity broadband connection. You can see the 'bTV' symbol displayed after the channel name for them when you change to them. On the BT Youview box then come over the aerial as Freeview HD channels.
    If you are getting a good picture for channels 101-104 over Infinity then surely that proves that there is absolutely nothing wrong with the HomeHub, the BT Vision+ box or the cabling.
    I have no idea why you would get problems with the picture for channels 507-509 (and possibly 510-512 if you get them in HD) if 101-104 are working fine. That sounds like a problem at BT's end?

  • Youview Signal/Quality Issues

    I have had a Youview box for a few weeks now and ever since it arrived the signal and picture quality has been very unreliable and patchy, with pixelation, horizontal lines appearing across the screen and breakup in sound when viewing live TV and recordings. I have re-tuned all the channels several times, signal strength is constantly 80% and above, signal quality is 100% and i have tried several different aerial cables and this problem still persists.
    If anyone has any ideas then they would be weclome. This seems to be for most channels but im noticing it most on BBC1, BBC2, ITV and their HD versions.

    Thanks for the responses all, my BBC 1 is showing as BBC1 East E which would make sense as im in the north norwich area.
    I managed to convince my girlfriend to ditch sky for Youview with BT and so far all i have had is complaints that it was a mistake, so im really hoping that I can find a solution to this to make it all go away
    Im on ITV HD at the moment and seems ok, the occasional spasm but not as bad as the BBC channels.

  • Premiere Elements 13 poor picture quality

    Hi Folks
    I recently bought Premier Elements 13 as a Christmas present for myself. I decided I wanted a stable program that would produce good quality video, and I was prepared to pay for it.
    However, my first couple of videos have been disappointing.
    I have Elements installed on my Windows (7)  PC.
    I use MP4 video files from my camera which play well on my PC.
    However once imported into PE13, the video files lose picture quality, and the final edited product looks awful. I have tried publishing as MPEG, AVI and MP4 with the same poor results.
    I guess I must be doing something wrong as I thought PE13 was supposed to be good!
    Any advice (in very basic language) would be gratefully received.
    Thanks very much

    Great news that you were able to produce an excellent .mp4 file with your Premiere Elements 13.
    The keys to success are getting a match between the project preset and the properties of the source video (whether you do that manually or the project does it automatically).
    The project will take over this task unless you intervene. Sometimes the project does it right, sometimes not...for the not, that is when you set the project preset manually.
    You have to evaluate the description in the Publish+Share/ area in making your choices there. Some of the choices require customization of the preset under the Advanced Button/Video Tab/Audio Tab/Multiplexer Tab. That is because the default settings of a preset may be for a lower resolution than your source video. And, you can generate .mp4 under Publish+Share/Computer/Mobile Phones and Players as well as under Publish+Share/Computer/AVCHD.
    The above is an assortment of miscellaneous information. If you decide to want to explore settings other than for .mp4, then we can discuss them in details when your
    schedule permits.
    Best wishes

  • I've got a MacBook pro 15' running 10.6.6. I want to use an external monitor for my graphic design work running Adobe software and thought I'd try an HD TV. I ran a Mini Display to HDMI lead to the TV but the picture quality was disappointing.

    I've got a MacBook Pro 15' running 10.6.6. I want to use an external monitor for my graphic design work using Adobe software and thought I'd try an HD TV. I ran a Mini Display to HDMI lead to the TV but the picture quality was disappointing. I also tried a Mini Display to VGA lead and that wasn't much better. I tried all variations of resolutions in System prefs - Displays but nothing helped. Am I getting something wrong? Thanks all.

    In addition to pixel density, you are up against the translation driver card in the TV.
    If you read the fine print of computer-resolution-capability in the TV user guide, you will see a chart as tall as the manual page.  At the top is the smallest resolution capable, at the bottom is the full use of the 1080p in the TV.
    Mac falls into the top 25% of the page, maxing out at 1366x768 often.  This is because the TV control card is expected to do too much of the work, but is not designed for computer-monitor processing.
    I looked at the resolution charts on 2 TVs before deciding to buy a 1080p LCD monitor that has a TV interface/connector.  Computer monitor first, TV second.  But the thing is only 27 in.  Good thing TV is not as important to me as it is to others.

  • What kind of picture quality can I expect from a Mini DVI adapter to Scart?

    I currently have my iMac connected to my tv via the Apple Mini DVI adapter and a composite video cable. There are two problems with this, one is the poor picture quality in general, the other is that the tv screen is not filled by the image from the iMac, i.e. there are black spaces on the left and the right of the screen.
    So my question is, if I used S-Video to Scart, would it kill the problem with the black borders when viewing Front Row etc..? Also, would there be a significant increase in general picture quality?

    Yes, if you can get an s-video cable and plug that into the SCART adapter, that would be better than plugging in composite video.
    Clearly, having an SCART connection is not going to "improve" the video going in, you're going to be limited by the lowest quality connection. An s-video connection will provide a higher (but probably not a lot) quality signal than composite video.

  • Mid 2009 13" MBP iSight camera bad picture quality in photo booth

    My daughter's stock mid 2009 13" MBP 2.26 ghz intel core two duo has a problem with the isight camera. The isight camera is built in to the screen. The isight camera works some of the time flawlessly and other times it comes out real grainy and with small colored pixels all over the screen like colored static (about 20% to 30% of the photo booth screen is affected but the rest of the screen outside of the photo booth app is unaffected). She only uses it in photo booth but we've tried the iChat app and the same thing happens there too, once she couldn't get the MBP to connect to the isight camera (it just showed a black photo booth screen), so she closed the lid of her MBP and reopened it and it worked. All of the software and firmware is up to date and we've tried resetting the PRAM and the SMC, it didn't do anything to fix the problem. It seems like there's a wire loose in the computer from the screen to the computer base, only because I can move the screen back and forth and the picture quality changes, the amount of static on the picture will move, go away or get worse. I had the screen changed in early 2010 (January or February) (the MBP was about 5 or 6 months old then) at the apple store under warranty due to dirt under the screen's glass (manufacturing defect). The photo booth picture static problem comes and goes, but here lately it comes more than it goes. The screen in general is in good shape and doesn't have any detectable problems with it, it has a good picture and no dead pixels, the problem seems to be only isolated to the isight camera. Can some one help with this problem? How long of a warranty is given on the warranty repairs (like the screen change they did in early 2010)? If apple does a repair on it and finds a wire that has rubbed the insulation off of it on a hinge causing a short and the isight problem, as a result of a sloppy repair from the first warranty repair, will they cover it under warranty again even if it's been over a year since they changed the screen? Also how honest will apple be if they do find out it is a problem caused from the first screen replacement, will they own up to their mistake? If I don't agree with apple's repair decision, can I get a second opinion from an outside source, third party, and if it's diagnosis different than apple's and can be proven, can I still get apple to do and pay for the repairs and labor if it turns out to be their fault from the first warranty screen replacement?
    The reason why I'm asking is, I took my wife's white macbook in about a year ago for the famous cracked top cover replacement (under warranty) and when I got the computer back, the isight camera didn't work, so I gave it back, they took it apart a look at it and said there was nothing wrong with it and gave it back, then the screen wouldn't come on so after 4 hours at the Apple store they decided to send it to Austin, TX. for repairs (I'm in Ft. Worth TX.). Apple in Austin said it needed a new main board. They said the old one had water damage to it. We never had water anywhere near the computer, not even in the same room. It was working fine when we took it in, we took it in just to get the plastic top case, that cracks all of the time, replaced under warranty. And then they wanted us to pay for an $800 main board because some how while they were doing the top cover replacement it got water damaged. I argued with them and they finally gave me a one-time offer of them paying for half of the repair and labor or if I disagreed or left the store I would have to pay the whole amount if I chose to have the repairs done. So I ended up having to pay $467 for a year old macbook main board that was water damaged in their possession during their repairs. I like Apple and their products but I am worried about giving my daughter's MBP over to them for repairs because of this incident, it's an honesty issue with how honest they will be with what they find because they won't give back the old parts for analysis by a third party to verify their diagnosis.
    Thanks for any info and advice anyone can give.

    As a personal note I find long posts like this hard to read if they are not broken up in to paragraphs.
    As I say it is  a personal thing.
    I can give you some information about the camera and laptops over the past few years.
    Basically in early Laptops of the MacBook Pro and MacBook range the cable did tend to fray at the point where it passed through the hinge.  It did take a well used laptop that had the lid open and closed frequently to cause this.  (your 2009 model might just be in that group - I have no firm dates or models I am afraid)
    Later models have this rerouted so that this does not happen.
    However the cable has then tended to get pulled from the camera end and become loose.
    This On Line Self fix site has pages about some models  (The one I have linked to may not be yours)
    I have linked in to later pictures in the sequence but there are navigation points to work back to the start.
    Note:- they use pretty specifc specialest tools as well in these pics.
    Doing this would certail Void any Warranty you have left.
    From Posts mainly in the iChat and the iSight areas I have gathered that it seems common for Apple to replace the Screen as a whole rather than fiddle with getting solely at the camera.
    Apple has this article on Trouble Shooting an iSight
    Basically it says try several apps then try logging in on another Mac User account to see if it is App based or User based or in fact System wide.
    If System wide then resetting the SMC/PMU is the only suggested fix.  (Which I did read you had done)
    In addition to that I would add that testing should be done in different lighting conditions.
    Lighting in the evening or dark that is good enough to read buy is not always good enough for the camera or is not illuminating the right areas.
    Some people have reported that Starting the computer in Safe Mode (then Rebooting afterwards) seems to help.  (it clears out some caches and starts up with reduced extensions)
    As to actual Repairs and any Warranty that may still be in place I cannot say.
    I can say that when people post about problems with repairs a certain stores someone else will tend to post that their experience was different.
    You seem to report two different experiences with the two computers yourself.

  • Ipod to TV, Is there a way to get picture quality ?

    I have the dock and av cables. I played a video that was downloaded from itunes.
    The picture is distorted. Does anyone know how to get better picture quality?

    Probably not. This is one of the problems with video from iTunes. If you have a large size screen or HDTV then iTunes video will likely not look 'good'.
    If I remember correctly iTUnes video is 640x480.

  • Calendar Picture Quality Warning

    I am converting some old 35mm slides my father has and creating a calendar for him for Christmas. The pictures look good in iphoto. I add them to the calendar and in the upper right corner of the picture there is a yellow warning triangle.
    When I complete the calendar and go to order it indicates that some of the pictures (I assume the ones with the yellow triangle) are of a too low picture quality to print.
    I shot the slides in raw format and imported into iphoto.
    Is there something I an do to correct this issue? When I cropped the pictures I did not go with one of the preset sizes, but rather just cropped to get rid of the slide frame

    What resolution did you scan the slides at? For a decent print they should be at around 3600 dpi or better. I believe iPhoto will warn if the dpi of the photo used in a particular frame or page falls below 140 dpi. The calendars are now 13" x 10.4" per page so you would need an image size for a full page photo to be around 1820 x 1456 pixels to avoid the warning sign.
    For a full page image, 1280 x 960 gives a warning as does 1600 x 1200. That's not to say they won't print up fairly well but it's below the standard set by iPhoto.
    Do you Twango?
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • Significant loss of picture quality in iMovie, what are my other options???

    Hello All,
    I am new to the Mac world moving over from windows.
    Hooking up my dv camcorder (non high-def) to my TV gives a pretty good picture.
    If I use iMovie to import from my camcorder and then iDvd to burn a dvd and play the DVD the picture quality is significantly reduced (looks worse than VHS!).
    I am reading that this is uncorrectable through any settings available in iMovie or iDVD. This to me is unfathomable!
    Being a newbie in the Mac world I don't know what my other options are.
    I read about iMovie HD and Final Cut Express but don't know how they position and can I achieve better picture quality preservation.
    I want my camcorder picture quality better preserved. I’ve certainly gotten much better results on windows with various packages (but have little experience).
    I came into the Mac world believing that this sort of thing is what Mac was great for so a bit surprised.
    How do you folks get around such a significant picture quality loss???
    My home movies through iMovie and iDVD look embarassing for circa 2009!

    I convert my imported dv files to AIC at 1080p before editing.
    There is a small quality drop using this approach, I find it acceptable but some others don't.
    I have added an original dv movie clip, two exports in different formats of the same clip as prepared in imovie 09 and another of the same clip exported to back to dv as prepared in imovie 6, to a disc image of a DVD created in iDVD.
    I don't feel the differences represent the differences some here are reporting they see themselves, see what you think

  • Improving Ibook to TV picture quality?

    I have tried hooking my ibook G4 with my TV (32" CRT) as an external display using the video adapter and a composite video cable.
    Its really only good for viewing pics and video. Web pages and print are unreadable. Is there any way of improving the quality? Is it because of the lack of digital connection or the non-LCD/plasma TV I am using?
    - John

    If anybody is still following this thread I still haven't quite given up yet! I thought I would just try dragging ten photos out of iPhoto on to the desktop. I then inserted a CD and dragged the ten photo icons directly into the CD icon. Lo and behold when I played this CD, via my DVD player, to my standard definition widescreen TV the picture quality is excellent. It at least has proved to me that it is possible to get good quality TV results from a DVD. The big drawback is that each image takes 3-4secs to scroll down the TV screen which is not acceptable. I presume this is because the method I used has loaded the original full resolution image to the DVD. I thought I would then try 'exporting' the same 10 images to the desktop using the JPEG/MEDIUM/MEDIUM settings and dragging the photo icons to the CD icon exactly as before. When displayed on the TV the picture quality is very poor but of course composes much quicker.
    My tiny compact camera can display these original images on TV perfectly adequately and composes the next photo instantaneously. Amazing! I now conclude (probably completely incorrectly) that to obtain a good quality image via DVD to TV the original full resolution image must be used even though the TV itself doesn't need this. Presumably the image data is corrupted if the iMac is used to reduce the resolution. Is there no simple answer to displaying good quality pictures on a TV screen?
