How? When? WTF? Pray tell us more...... :P:blink::P:D

If this is actually true I'm going to spend the evening getting drunk, watching 7 with the tears rolling down my cheeks. Happy day.

Well, I can at least confirm that there is no picture on 70 through my SD STB, used to have a pixelated picture 24/7 through the SD STB.

I used to do this, but I might stop doing that now... and actually have a clear head for the extra resolution :blink:

Well, that's an interesting development.

I wonder if it's the prelude to Seven launching the All-New Seven HD channel, featuring a new lineup?

(I love pointless speculation, but someone did recently post that Seven had been airing some different shows on HD than on their main channel, in Adelaide).

Also some speculation on the "New 7 HD Logo" thread that something may be afoot. We live in hope.

Send us a sign, oh great Stokes in the sky.

576p has provided so much fodder, argument and angst for forum members we're going to miss it. (well, like the proverbial hole in the head) We should have a wake for it. But what now to fill this void in our lives?

How about "OK you bastards at 9 and 10, how about coming up with a REAL 1080P service not to mention MPEG4...."

The road goes ever on.

Also confirmed for Melbourne - 1440x1080i.

Sneaky Seven :blink:

That does explain the (dreadful) new HD logo though.

Strangely, at the moment they're only running the demo lopp instead of normal programming.

Finally, though, the joke of the HD world is gone, and shows like Heroes can be seen (presuming they get it right!) in their full high definition glory...

and now consumers can change settings around to optimise 7 HD, with progressive formats, you get no choice, because the broadcaster has already done the de-interlacing.

Looking forward to 7 news tonight :D

1440x1080i in Melbourne @ 10.25mbps

Well, that bitrate isn't really anything to get excited about, PRIME already did 13MBps for 576p.

Thought it looked a little better when I flicked during an F1 ad break, but didn't take much notice - definately 1080i here in Melbourne though (although it's only the HD loop, at least it's HD, not ED).

Nor Brisbane, could be either testing, or a gradual roll-out? I'm off work till Wed so will do some frequent checking daytime when they always show the Loop in Brisbane. Can't wait.

right, the bitrate has remained the same, but the resolution has increased. Presumably there will be an upgrade in bitrate, assuming this resolution gets a permanent nod.

either way, the PQ is better, even allowing for artifacting

Is the loop auctually 1080i or it is something lower?

It seems like they are upconverting it from 576p, like PRIME did with programming a few weeks back when everyone thought they were going to do 1080i

Coxy's Big Break is produced in 1080i HD (says so in their wikipedia entry). We'll see at 5.30 if they switch the loop. (I think the show is only broadcast in Melbourne/Prime.)

Just occurred to me that if 7 change to 1080i throughout Australia AND they keep a HD loop going during the day, it will look so good at Harvey Normans etc that HD sales should really take off - you would be a dud salesman not to point out the incredible PQ to the punters and steer them away from the cheapy plasmas.

This will be the biggest thing in 2007 for HD.

When they do a look back of what happened in 2007 at the end of the year, the month of March is Seven transmits 1080i HD

More like someone will wake from a coma and hear about 7 doing 1080i and pass out.

On another note, the watermark is randomly disappearing.

I've noticed this too.

I also found I had to rescan not long ago to get N&N back, but I had it earlier while it was 1080i.

That always happens on the Loop.

I just noticed that too, then searched the forum haha.. must of happened pretty recently. like today even!

looks very nice on my htpc.

Wait a second, there's already been replies saying 7 HD Brisbane is still 576p, so how would you have 1080i????
