few months ago on this transponder was nearly 30% of null PID packets
broadcasted, but now it seems to be much better (less than 1Mbps). Also
multiplexing of this transponder was not equal within time - there was
chunks of packets of PlanetHD multiplexed with chunks of other SD
channels mixed packets. Maybe the buffers for USB are not big enough to
memorize such chunks? But I didn't done measuring for some months, so
the situation may be different now.
You can see bitrates of this transponder at
The bitrate of this channel is nothing special, with maximum about 11
Mbps, the peak of 20.2Mbps at 22.5. was maybe a joke.
