MPEG artificats in analog cable!? [Oct. 11th, 2005|08:17 pm]

Why the hell do I see MPEG artifacts during commercials on analog cable?

Is the new way to distribute commercials to studios via crappy MPEG files?

Lame. Not that I care about commercial quality much, but I hate this "digital" world being used to lower costs more than increasing quality. Kinda depressing.

TiVo double-encoding

yeah, I've seen that too. I *think* it's commercial distribution to local transmission points, because I've noticed it on ads for local stuff...
