The channels on TopDownTV are being broadcast on Muxs 2 and A (Mux listing). The only 'Freeview' channels of note that will be affected are ITV1, ITV2, C4 and five (.....and bid-up.tv!! ). five broadcasts in variable bitrate so it's difficult to track the average, and I'm not sure what changes to their bandwidth quota have been made, but it _seems_ to me that the quality has dropped since TUTV has started broadcasting. And I'm sure you'll be delighted to hear that the TUTV previews (in what way is that looping rubbish a preview???) are mostly higher bitrate than the other channels on the Muxs!Originally posted by Spok
Does anyone know if TOPUP TV is using spare bandwidth or are we going to see a drop in bitrate for all the other channels to make room. If so, I will be very angry. A drop in the already low bitrate would mean a drop in picture quality.
From the TUTV web site:I know a CAM for IDTVs is supposedly in the pipeline, but this won't be available at launch, will it?
