Update on TiVoCast Bit Rates


I downloaded several TiVoCast offerings and calculated the following bit rates:

  • dLife –    24:18     3.33Mb
  • iVillage – 11:48     2.17Mb
  • Union –   16:04     3.57Mb
  • CNET1 –  15:25     5.02Mb
  • CNET2 –  16:51     5.00Mb

So the bit rates do vary widely. I did a poor job timing, but downloads were less than realtime, more like .5X. My Internet connection can sustain download speeds of 5mb.

Downloads tended to start 5-8 min. after selection or after the preceeding download.

No clue about resolution without TTG, and my limited skill set.
