Eurovision 2010 – was HD picture quality compromised?

Eurovision 2010 – was HD picture quality compromised? – Technology Forum | TechRadar UK.

Not only is Eurovision good fun, it’s historically been one of the best HD transmissions of the year. But I’m not so sure about last night. Sure it looked great, but I felt there was rather more noise and artifacts than previously. Is this an example of the BBC’s infamous HD bit-choking? My reservation is tempered though by the fact I was watching this on a different screen than 2009 – a Samsung 9000 Series 3D job.  I’ll probably have to compare my Blu-ray recordings to really find out how they differed.
Anyone else come to the same conclusion? For what it’s worth, very happy the UK came last (why do we get saddled with this garbage?), loved Turkey and very much enjoyed Romania and Armenia (Apricot Stones’ singer Eva Rivas pictured below) for obvious reasons.Eva Rivas
