      Sky Go - Lousy Colour

      My Video Card driver was updated recently. As a result, the colour on Sky Go is awful. It doesn't affect anything else - eg BBC iPlayer. It seems to be limited to Sky Go. Usually I'm watching footaball on Sky Sports. The pitch looks yellow and reds look a bit purple. Has anyone else experienced a similar issue; is it a known problem and if so, is there a solution.

      Can I suggest that you double check that you have the most current drivers for you card?

      Also check any relevant forum to see if others are reporting similar issues with other products.

      I'd be tempted to roll back to your previous driver version.
      The latest drivers don't always give the best performance, certain games for example have been known to perform better on older drivers, sometimes 2/3 versions earlier.

      Certainly my previous driver didn't give me any problems. How do I find a previous version? Its a NVIDIA GeForce GT530 video card that has automatic update on it.

      NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search

      That's the 32 bit link, if your os is 64 bit just change the dropdown.

      You could have a look at the Properties of the Display adapter in the Device Manager. Click the Driver tab and see if 'Roll back to previous version' is available.

      Are you tube videos effected? If not it could be a problem with Silverlight. Try de-installing it followed by a fresh install.
