[mythtv-users] Recording/live-tv video quality (aka do PVR150 encoders suck?)

Thanks to all who replied.
To answer some of the questions:
I'm encoding 720 x 480 at 6 Mbps (9 Mpbs max.) MPEG-2 PS stream.
Remember it's apples to apples I'm talking about, source vs. the same stream
washed through the PVR150. Forget about the tuner.
As for what it looks like the best I can say is that it all looks very soft
and out of focus. It's as if I lost all the high frequency video
Movement is smooth with little artifact. I don't see any pixelization.
De-interlace on or off makes no difference. Higher bit rates buy me nothing.
Perhaps I should try encoding at a higher resolution than 720 x 480?
