I finally got to do a measurement here in Clinton last night. I was watching the Giants-Packers game and thinking the picture looked pretty decent for a change. Put on my reading glasses to see if it completely fell apart into mush at three feet viewing distance and it still looked pretty decent so I recorded 129 minutes worth. That generated a file size of 13,572,864 which I make to be a 14 bitrate. If all their service and channels looked like that, while it may not look like uncompressed HD, I would not be too unhappy, but that is not the case as you know. The CBS game earlier was lousy looking but I did not measure. I do notice when they move any of the long shot cameras the field starts to look like an algae pond.
