Not on me they won't.

My version of Windows 7 isn't.... entirely legal and my hardware was designed for Vista so won't be able to run W10 anyway! :D

HD CRT sets were available a few years ago from Samsung. Full HD as well.

As I say, maybe Sky are purposefully compressing the BBC's HD feed knowing Murdoch's childish and pathetic hatred of the BBC.

That's only on analogue.

And with analogue in many of those areas either gone or soon on its way out, your point is pointless.

C5 can be received on all digital platforms in all parts of the UK.

Well that rules out the transmitter theory.

Anyway, I've heard tales of BBC1 HD looking absolutely brilliant on Freeview HD and Freesat HD.

So maybe it is Sky and Virgin at fault?

Usual Sun bull.

If that is the case, then why do most working Betamax recorders and 70s TVs usually sell for no more than a tenner on eBay?

A 16mm film recording usually won't have the quality. The reason why is that TV drama shot on 16mm film using the studio cameras will still be in 405 lines, not 1080.

So if you played one of these...

You can see they're not using the BBC Micro anymore. They haven't in news since about 1986 I believe.

If the frame frequencies were the problem then they would suffer the same artefact, but they don't.

I still don't understand why though. Younger kids won't understand the humour, so they'll forget it. People forget what they don't understand.
