The transponders on Galaxy 13 indicate 47 mb/s for two HBO HD channels and 40 mb/s for two Cinemax HD channels but cable companies are usually broadcasting those channel between 10-14 mb/s. Has anyone checked the distribution bit rate of those channels with a BUD? Is the map correct and a lot of bandwidth is wasted (most others seem to deliver air ready broadcasts) or is the map wrong?

The two Cinemax HD channels range from 10 to 14 Mbps each. There are about 20 Mbps of null packets in the mux.

The two HBO HD channels range from 9 to 12 Mbps each. There are also two SD channels in the mux at 5 Mbps each.
