I have just purchased a Sony KDL40HX853 television. With the external ariel connected, the television indicates that HD 1080 is being watched (when tuned to an HD channel). Whenever the Tivo box is watched even on HD channels the television indicates that only SD 576i is being displayed. I have had lengthy discussion with Sony but their technical support assures me that the television information on the signal is always correct and working properly.
The virgin engineer came out but claimed that the picture was HD quality. I suspect that the TV is up scaling the picture but I find it irritating that it should be better - I have just spent over £1000 on this product. Can someone please help!!!!
Sony and Virgin are blaming each other.
