 Make sure to check out "Recording Profiles". You can adjust the quality of
"LiveTV" and other recording profiles. I set my "LiveTV" to "720x480",
"16:9", bitrate at 12000, and max bitrate at 16000. Since LiveTV gets
deleted in a day, I figure just crank the settings up. For my default
recording, the bitrates are much lower. I have a wide screen TV and setting
16:9 helped a lot.
