BBC starts 1080p broadcasts, creates trouble with Sony TVs

BBC 1080p broadcasts causing issues with Sony TVs

BBC HD has started rolling out Freeview HD that combines 1080i video with 1080p content that switches on a Group of Pictures (GOP) basis. This is causing issues with some Sony HDTVs, according to early reports on Monday.
