Wish they'd do it now so we can get HD on Freeview.

Who on earth is still watching on analogue when digital has been around for about 8 years?

The digital signal is fine - it is your end of the system you need to check.

He probably means digital reception.

I used to have a great picture and sound with analogue, but since digital we've to put up with compression artefacts on a number of channels.

Then you have a problem with your system.
If your analogue reception is good then your digital should be also.

I don't think it is the system. Digital compression on an SD broadcast can be quite high and gives a comparatively poor picture quality, particularly on programs like football I've noticed, and when viewed on a big screen.

That is what I mean. Digital doesn't grantee that the transmission will be of good quality. Most SD transmissions I have seen have been quite poor picture quality compared to a good analogue signal.

Flat TV's have terribly pixely screens anyway - isn't that why they invented HD in the first place?

I have noticed lately it is taking longer for the dot to disappear when I turn my television off after the National Anthem.

No he's right. Digital can look pixelated compared to analogue particularly when there's lots of small objects on the screen, like a football match.

What has a pixi to do with television? Is it something to do with Noddy and Big Ears?
