Re: Optimum App for Laptop: SD-only?
I heard from a Cablevision source on another forum that the video is encoded 720p (with adaptive bit rate streaming). It must be the adaptive bit rate streaming that made the bit rate appear below 720p on my Windows 7 laptop.
Actually looking at the streaming video this morning it looks HD. Maybe I need new glasses!
The bogus STB listing is puzzling, but not worth my time at the moment. I have not tried using the remote control/STB tuning feature of the App, nor another laptop. As I said, the picture quality looks good this morning, so perhaps when I was first playing with the App there was network congestion and I got stuck with one of the low bit rate streams.
