Yes. By contrast, other HD cable and OTA channels (whether truly over
the air or via cable) I have go up to, or close to, the theoretical
19.2Mbps maximum of ATSC/8VSB.

No more "HD" (at least by our standards) than the "HD" option on Vimeo

Not that I recall, but perhaps it didn't apply to Xbox 360 users like

Frontend/backend:	P4 3.0GHz, 1.5TB software RAID 5 array
Backend:		Quad-core Xeon 1.6GHz, 6.6TB sw RAID 6
Video inputs:		Four high-definition over FireWire/OTA
Accessories:		47" 1080p LCD, 5.1 digital, and MX-600
