    Good to see the SSR digital clock has now been upgraded to include seconds.

    ....and you've got to look a long way back for anything else.

    Don’t get your hopes up, but Virgin have just issued an updated Channel Guide.

    Both Sky Sports Racing and Freesports are now listed as HD on their respective channels.

    FreeSports wasn’t in HD a couple of days ago, but it is now. ;-)

    That would be funny wouldn’t it HD when there is no racing to watch.

    Hey tune in channel 535 on Virgin for HD quality pictures of no racing… :scratch:


    @espmadrid
    you clearly didn’t notice that channel 536 says Racing UK HD not racing tv.

    I’m enjoying the new set up a lot more than expected, but without wanting to state the obvious, it badly needs more racing.

    Lingfield 4.10 – Must have been the most extensive build up to a walkover in the history of British racing, what the hell are SSR playing at? :negative:

    Two other meetings to cover and the 4.15 at Chepstow (a class 2 race) gets about 30 seconds of attention before the race – pathetic.

    Have the long deprived Virgin Media viewers at last got the channel in HD?

    There was a marked improvement in picture quality from yesterday. I still can’t decide for sure though.

    For those of you who record on tivo, you will know how fast you can whizz through on fast forward with HD recordings as opposed to the painful SD recordings. Well recordings of SSR are now as fast as all other HD recordings.

    However, they don’t appear in the HD recording folder, suggesting they are not true HD.

    Virgin have been moving lots of channels around lately and removing duplicate SD channels, so maybe that’s helped with the overall picture quality and annoying pixellation on some channels.

    Either way, something has changed for the better since yesterday.

    @espmadrid no Virgin is not in HD it is a disgrace that we still have awful SD pictures that are worse than some internet streams, streaming Dubai Racing Channel is a better picture.

    All Virgin say is they have continued with the original contract they had with ATR and that the feed is exactly same and won’t change until the contract comes up for renewal whenever that is.

    At last, Virgin Media customers have finally received SSR in HD!

    Just in time for Royal Ascot. :yahoo: :yahoo:

    The biggest decision of the day needs to be made soon: do I watch Ascot on ITV or SSR? :scratch:
