Zippity: Sunday's F1 German GP wasn't broadcast in widescreen Cry

Maybe Hungary in 2 weeks will be...........................


Both F1 & MotoGP on SS Highlights last night were in WS, but yet again the replay/extended highlights are on SS3 today so will be in NS. Hungary should be sweet tho... And hopefully SS3 will be sorted before the next MotoGP on August 17.

just to satisfy my curiosity, I hooked up my other decoder, it seems that Sky are now running at a more acceptable bitrate too.  Golf highlights and athletics seemed to be hovering around the 4.5-5mb/s, which is a massive improvement on the 3-3.5 it was previously on.

In saying that, Freeview still craps over all of that Undecided

So how do you know the bitrates? Have you got a box that displays them?

yes, I can see the bitrates but not decrypt the signal Wink.  The signal doesn't need to be decrypted to see what bitrate the streams run at.
