Watched the F1Q live.

Picture quality was the same across all feeds.

 

But on board car cameras really showed a drop in quality no matter what feed, likely because..

1 the cameras are portable...

2 they are moving faster.

This likely triggers what ever setting the BBC is using to save bandwidth and the trees become a mess of green blurred blocks. But the quality of pit lane camera was fine, edds beard and hair (what's left) was fine, as is the paint work of the cars as they speed round the track even as they are in motion speeding past the fixed camera.

 

Its like the BBC is using a "point of interest high bit rate filter" (do they even exist) that as a side effect reduces the quality of the out side of the pictures frame.

Yep. To give the BBC the biggest shot at getting viewers from here I put that in the sport section as it has more side effects than just the red button app... As the BBC out bid EPSN... Which is massive news for UK TV veiwers.  due to the problems of recording the red button..

You can record via Red button on Sky+ HD box done it myself during the Olympics and Wimbledon. It just depends if the tv guide is kept up-to-date and accurate. It's a good addition for the sports application anyhow maybe it'll have a watch later option or extended highlights.

Can't find anything yet the BBC red button channels seem to come and go. There was up to 20 channels available around the Olympics. Channel 4 have several para-olympic channels at moment and they are recordable.

Er That would be nice if the BBC paid SKY to put extra channels on the EPG all year round but don't expect they will. the fee to have just one EPG No per year is thousands.. find out on monday..

The Sky deal With BBC & CH4 to put the interactive content up as extra channels has ended along with the olympics coverage. The channels have been removed. BBC red button has returned to pressing the red button on channel 101... 

(Were did I put that VCR, wait that wont work the tape is only 6 hours long bugger... Ill miss the end.. )

Hope the BBC sport app will auto repeat like freesat red button coverage does...

This app needs to advertise whats going to be on better....

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tv_and_radio/5345480.stm

Instead of reling on the web site.

I should be able to see whats comming up over the next few days not just one event.

Normal red button forces this on the user with a scrolling banner. which is removed when going full screen. 

 

The BBC sport app should have multi day adverts not just one pic. The BBC has no problems delaying programes by 3 mins to advertise the radio even when all ready running late but are not using the chance to push the red button content hard at the user...

BBC will no longer offer multi screen content via Red Button.

This means the BBC will be cutting back on Sport content.

 

There will be a side effect on the BBC Sport app as the content will no longer be made.

Iive events will be effected, there may only be 1 HD video feed and no other content. but repeat reruns will be reduced to None for most sports...

 

The cost of creating Multi interactive feeds has been given as the reason to reducing sport events to a Single feed.

 

The highlights of sport are promised to be moved to IPlayer (but we all know that means PC Iplayer not the HDTV Iplayer the PS3 has.)

Support for SDTV Testing was dropped from the PS3 SDK in 2012.

Things you may have missed on the EU blog and forum about the dropped SD supported features..

 

SCEE anounced the dropping of PAL SD testing in the SDK to increase the speed of EU content getting on the EU store for release.

 

This includes.... the removal of anamorphic SD 16/9 mode and use of 4/3 only and the use of NTSC only during SD for....

 

Demos

Applications.

PSN games 

  • PS one releases
  • PS2 HD remakes  
  • PS3 digital titles

SCEE also announced no support for lower than 1080p for any SCEE websites. 

As the User base was less than <1%

 

Overscan on HDTV is up to the user to fix by buying a model with PIXEL to PIXEL matching mode...

 

IF you are watching on SDTV you wont get the full interface...

Very strange i am still showing 1.00 myself but was prompted to update? 

I haven't knowingly deleted the app previously unless a recent restore file system operation did it for me.
