Does viewing on a HD TV connected to a HD PVR mean that I am watching High Definition content?
No. Only the content broadcast in HD on the HD channel can be viewed in HD.Although the HD PVR is capable of up-scaling normal television content, it does not deliver true HD for any channel other than those broadcast in HD. Please remember to correctly connect the HD PVR to your HD TV. MultiChoice recommends the use of a MultiChoice Accredited Installer for all HD PVR installations.Requires correct connection (HDCP compliant HDMI) between the HD PVR and HD receiver."Resolution is how much detail you can see on a screen. Today, the two HD resolutions available for broadcast are :720 x 1280, progressive scanning, 50 frames per second (720p50) , 1080 x 1920, interlaced scanning, 25 frames per second (1080i25).,mThe standard for the MultiChoice Africa broadcast of HD content is 720p50, however, MultiChoice Africa may from time to time broadcast in 1080i25. At normal viewing distances, displays smaller than 127cm (50”) do not generally benefit from a horizontal resolution higher than 720. The progressive scanning characteristic of 720p has a significant advantage over interlaced for fast moving content like sport ie. smoothness of fast motion. Progressive scanning with 1080 horizontal lines (1080p) is currently not available for broadcasting.
