Change picture settings

Sky's HD service uses two HD picture formats. The first, 1080i, brings the number of rows in the frame up to 1080 - that's over 500 more than a standard PAL image. The other, 720p, shows 720 rows in each frame and refreshes the screen at twice the rate of 1080i. In rare cases, your TV may only be able to display one of these formats.

Check your TV's settings if you find the picture isn't as sharp as it should be. Otherwise you can change your HD picture settings to find the ideal resolution output.

When your Sky+HD box is installed, the picture settings are set at the right level to suit your equipment, so please don't adjust them unless you find it absolutely necessary.

If you do wish to change the resolution setting, please follow the instructions below:

Changing the resolution setting

  1. Press SERVICES, select "SYSTEM SETTINGS" then "PICTURE SETTINGS".
  2. Highlight 'HD Resolution Output' and use the left/right arrow to choose from Automatic (this is the default and recommended setting), 576, 720p and 1080i.
  3. Follow the instructions on-screen to confirm the changes.

If your TV doesn't display anything after you confirm the changes, the new setting is incompatible with the TV set. You don't need to do anything - after ten seconds your set top box will automatically revert to the previous settings, and your blank screen will be replaced with normal viewing.

Changing the resolution setting in the new Sky+HD Guide

  1. Press SERVICES and highlight "SETTINGS" using the right arrow button, then press SELECT.
  2. Highlight 'HD Resolution Output' and use the left/right arrow to choose from Automatic (this is the default and recommended setting), 576, 720p and 1080i.
  3. Press the green button to save any changes you have made.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to confirm these changes.

If your TV doesn't display anything after you confirm the changes, the new setting is incompatible with the TV set. You don't need to do anything - after ten seconds your set top box will automatically revert to the previous settings, and your blank screen will be replaced with normal viewing.
