    Default Depressing bit rates.

    UK satellite HDTV channel bit rates

    Aint they rubbish - not even as good as a camcorder from dixons - and 384 mbit for 5.1 - oh dear.

    Thank god and allah and my elbow that blu ray is 40mbit / 1.5mbit cos the ' HD ' you will get at those lower bit rates will not be any sort of high definition at all.

    This amy explian why I am rarely impressed by so called HD pictures on tellys in shops.

    Good old bbc for being the best of the bunch.

    It always make me chuckle when I see such poor quality videos being show on TVs in Currys. They seem to have finally realised they need to sell on 'quality' in some shops now though. A lot now have looped animation (always looks better than real life), or HD broadcats rather than crappy SD terestrial through what appeared to be an indoor aerial.

    6538kbps for an HD channel? I could grab a crayon and draw better bitrates than that.
