OK, 3 related questions and any help is much appreciated: I am thinking of getting back into the Plasma market after a disapointing first step early last year. I now have Telewest and most of my viewing is via the STB as opposed to DVD and the signal on my 28" CRT is pretty good. However, there are lots of discussions about needing a good bit rate (as well as many other factors) in order to get decent viewing of Sky/Cable pictures. So my 3 questions are; 1) Can you measure the bitrate coming through your STB? 2) If so what would be considered 'good'? 3) Although Telewest now officially only supply one box, can you use any other STBs at all to view the telewest signal? Cheers for any help!
