    Anybody else noticed the sound on tonights BG? It sounded awful... sounded like a low bitrate mp3 ... 56kbs sort of sound? It must be the program because the adverts sounded fine?

    Anybody on the forum work for sky? whats going on? saving bandwidth?!

    My SKY+ recording sounds fine but not got access to the main AV setup atm only running it via phonos to PC's DD/DP2 amp.
    I'll have a closer listen this afternoon if I have the time to watch the show.

    Any problems are more likely to be with the actual playback and/or transponder not with the bitrate of the audio, saving a few kilobytes here and there isn't going to make any practical saving:)

    I love it, a reworking of the orginal taking it in a totally different direction, remakes are fine but sometimes they come across as more of the same and times have moved on. The character updates are better suited to the current tv climate, the SFX are simply stunning and it has depth and intelligence in the writing.

    It's not got the qwerkiness (that can't be a real word) of a LEXX or a Farscape nor has it the middle of the roadness of the Trek franchise, for humour and loveable characters it's not a patch on Firefly but having said all that it still holds it'w own as a more realistic hard edged scifi show set against a genocidal war.

    Back to the audio..
    It sounded ok to be honest, the title music which would have been the "cleanest" piece of the soundtrack was full and smooth and the rest both dialogue and sound fx were solid. Just a shame that SKY1 doesn't carry DD5.1, I am sure that option would be available to broadcasters.

    I also love this show for all of the above reasons.I find it a dramatic,well acted,inteligent piece of sci-fi television...the best I've seen in years.
    Audio last night was hissy as described,must have been the V.T as adverts were fine.

    Learn how to imply the same thing using a couple of hundred words and you'll have a job on any tabloid newspapers TV review section:)
