Re: Bit Rate versus Picture Quality

In fact they at least in the past with some channels did not re-encode them, simply sent what they received.

Whether that has changed or not I do not know.

With a proper viewing distance to allow you to see 1080 resolution (e.g. 6-8 feet from a 60 inch TV) you will be able to see a significant difference between the ~19Mbps and let's say a compressed ~10Mbps... I have been able to compare FIOS and CV right next to each other at my neighbors and there is a significant difference... (I don't have either TV service - the only TV I watch is Netflix BluRay's - their Streaming is also not up to snuff at all - If I wanted TV I would go back to FIOS at this point)

Clearly FiOS has the capability of delivering the full 19-Mbps HD signal all the way to the viewer. Are you saying that they are getting the full 19-Mbps HD signal from the broadcasters and that is what they are delivering? (This would be better than OTA which is less that 19 Mbps.)

You can enable debug/signal information on your box and see bitrate a given channel gets.

How is this possible?
