Is the sound still out of synch with Sky Sports News with your box ?

 

NowTV did have an technical issue a few days ago which was fixed pretty quickly (My box was also effected).

 

If your box still has the out of synch sound issue and your watch Sky Sports News HQ via the app, then i would try deleting the app in My Apps, then reinstall the app back again and then reboot the nowtv box.

 

Should the sound still be out sync after doing the above, try a reboot on your Router.

 

I have just checked the Sky Sports News HQ app on my box and it is working fine. Smiley Happy

 

 

Edit - I can see that you are all sorted now (your computer typing skill are much quicker than mine). Smiley Very Happy

Sky Sports picture quality?

Hi,

 

Can anyone give me an idea what the picture quality is like for the live streaming Sky Sports channels on the Now TV Smart Box?

 

  • Is it better than the black box?
  • Is it comparable to the Sky Sports News app (which seems to almost stutter, although the resolution is good otherwise, is this due to low frame rate?)
  • Is it like the entertainment live streaming channels on the black box (which actually seem better than the advertised SD)?

My concern is that although its listed to be 720p, it has the same issue as the Sky Sports News app.

 

Many thanks

With the 50Hz video playback the picture looks slightly sharper more natural and smoother to me when when watching the live channels on the smart box.

 

To my eyes there is still some micro judder to the ticker banner on the Sky Sports News HQ app but not has obvious has the standard black box.

 

My standard black box is now gathering dust in the cupboard and my main nowtv player that i use now in the Living Room is the smart box.

 

Bear in mind that with any internet streaming device a good stable high speed internet connection is vitally important.

So I got a free week pass for the sports channels & the judder is very apparent, like a frame has been removed, it's not terrible but compared to Sky Sports via BT tv for example, it's nowhere near as good.

 

It's a shame they don't provide a better quality stream, as I would pay the monthly subs if they did. I appreciate it would prob cost them more in bandwith, but surely most people feel as I do & don't bother with it beacause of this?

 

I have superfast fibre broadband & this is through an ethernet connection, so no issues with the setup. It's a good pic as long as no fast movement!

If you are viewing the sports service via the NOW TV 'smart' box you should not be seeing any motion judder at all.

 

What make and model number of television do you have the 'smart' box connected to? Have you remembered to disable your TV's post-processing options for the given HDMI input?

Re: Sky Sports picture quality?

Hi,

 

Maybe I'm not describing it properly, it's like there is a frame missing during movement. Are you saying it's should be comparable to a HD Sky Sports feed via satellitte or BT tv?

 

I have a SAMSUNG UE43J5600 Smart 43" LED TV.

 

I've no idea what this means?

@murphyslaw

 

If you go into the picture settings on your TV on the HDMI input source assigned to your nowtv box, there should be an option to change the motion processing of your LCD TV (i believe Samsung calls it either Motion Plus or Auto Motion).

 

Try switching this feature off or on and also you can experiment with custom settings such has blur & judder etc to see if there is any improvement when watching sports on the nowtv streaming service.

I also have no idea what this means.  I do experience slight judder on fast horizontal movement on my Smart Box, especially on Sky Sports channels.  My broadband downstream speed is a steady 11.5 Mbps.

 

My TV set is a Sony 40 inch LCD type, model KDL-40D3500.  It has two HDMI inputs and is "HD Ready" although the built-in Freeview tuner is non-HD.  I have looked through all the menus, and read the manual but I can find no reference to changing the motion processing.

 

Any ideas?
