[mythtv-users] Should I be transcoding? UK DVB-T

HI all,

I've done a bit of reading here, there, and everywhere trying to
figure out if I should be transcoding or not. My sources are a number
of Nova-T's receiving Freeview in a modest backend. And the primary
frontend is an Epia M10K.

Should I be transcoding?
To reduce file size?
To make playback easier on the Epia?
To remove those pesky blips and glitches when it's really windy/sporadic signal?
Is it time to experiment with commercial detection? (Something which
would probably end up with me getting obsessive about it and
relearning c++..)

Thanks for any replies,

Steve Daniels

P.S. Looking forward to this week..
