This is correct that you can change all of this in settings under your
recording profiles. However, your problem is something more
significant than just having a lower quality from low resolution or
low bitrate. The audio was corrupt, there appeared to be problems
locking the signal or some other severe corruption in the encoding. I
would make sure your channels are scanned in properly and that you are
using the correct frequency table. I would check that you are getting
a clean signal on the actual input you are giving to the card rather
than just assuming you get the same signal throughout the house.
