Cheers, the Government say that I can go outside now, but there's still no vaccine or herd immunity and talk of a second wave coming, so I'm safe and well as I'm continuing to shield.

Thanks, It's probably due to it being line fed to VM then.

6Mbps is sufficient for an HD channel. Sometimes channels broadcast at a higher bitrate than necessary simply because they can - they expand to fit the space available. But it doesn't significantly improve the picture quality.

Thanks SP, that makes sense as, IIRC, the only other channels on the old trsnsponder were the Sky Promo loop & a UHD channel. It looks like Sky are clearing it as they continue to try and rationalise their capacity.

It's also been posted by jj20x here at his new home (you're welcome to join) https://www.forumbox.co.uk/forum/thr...020#post100020 that the feed to VM wouldn't matter, as it should be a fixed bit rate and that individual channel bit rates will depend on the weighting given to each channel in the stat-muxing algorithm.
