HD Flag enquiry
« on: January 15, 2009, 02:00:05 PM »
I've only just received my LCD so never recorded a HD program on my P2 up until now. My question is in Interactive this evening  Law & Order: Special Victims Unit has the HD flag on both TEN & TEN HD. Now I'm assuming TEN is not going to be HD? Can anyone explain why the HD flag appears on some shows on both SD and HD channels and not on others?

Thanks in advance.

I asked essentially the same question back in March. Russell from IceTV said that "maybe it's time we looked at this feature again and thought about removing the HD flag from all SD shows," but nothing appears to have changed.

The Ten service is SD and never broadcasts HD. Ten appears to be going to abandon all broadcasting of HD except sport as part of the "Freeview" changes. I guess it makes sense to someone at Ten.

Interesting, it appears this question has been asked a number of times in the past. At least I have an understanding on the current use of the HD flag even though I don't agree with it.

Thank you for your reply you've been most helpful.
