You ever tried watching compressed videos at 16-20 mbps vs bluray on a 60" tv or above like I have? If not shutup, they look horrible.
Yes, 16-20mbps is quite high for h.264 1080p. It doesn't start to look crappy until you get below 8 or so. Even then, it's pretty acceptable until you reach 6.
6-8 mbps matches what you get from broadcast providers (U-verse, DirecTV, DISH). Cable usually uses higher bitrate streams but with less efficient MPEG2.
Remember, 1080i/60 video needs more
bandwidth than 1080p/24.--
