Rented NT1 Blu-Ray the other day and was SORELY disappointed in parts. The opening scenes during the trek to the Charlotte were VERY grainy, but strangely, not all the time. The white skies against the white snow showed an incredible amount of granularity and "noise", but when there was more to see on the screen, like the snowcats or people, things looked really good. To be specific:
- Most all of the "flying shots" from a helicopter looking down on the landscape and the snowcats from a distance were terrible. A ton of noise and granularity.
- The first instance where our hero steps out of his snowcat, his foot is shown stepping out onto a tred, was clear as a bell an beautiful.
Is it me? My disk? My equipment?
Here's what I have:
Sony Blu-Ray BDP-BX1 (identical to the 350)
HDMI 1.3 from monoprice
Vizio 47" LCD 120Hz
Maybe someone else has experienced this same issue? Would it be the translation of a movie shot in standard def upgraded to BD?
