NHK World has scrapped all its programmes and is simulcasting its domestic channel with live translation and voice-over updates every 15 minutes.
They are back showing feature programmes (though not those in the EPG
) - but pushed back with a ticker underneath, and a QR code top right (presumably to take you to a web site with current information) along with a map tracking the Typhoon.
The QR code that’s on screen above the main strap is unreadable from my iPhone on the HD feed.
Works fine in the UK on my Sony set. What platform are you on? (Do you have any MotionFlow/TrueMotion/Natural Motion, Sharpness, Noise Reduction, Contrast Enhancement enabled on your TV - as that can hammer high frequency detail?)
I know some US 'HD' providers subsample 1920x1080 HD to 1440x1080, 1280x1080 or even 1080x1080 in some situations - and some cable providers heavily pre-process and compress too.
