I'm trying to determine the bit rates of some of the channels on the Galaxy 13 satellite.

http://www.lyngsat.com/g13h1.html

This is what is think I know:

  • 3880 Starz transponder has about a 46 mb/s payload after error correction.
  • 3900 HBO transponder has about a 46 mb/s payload after error correction.
  • 3920 Cinamax transponder has about a 39 mb/s payload after error correction.
  • 3820 National Geographic transponder - I don't know how to calculate the bitrate.

Are the above fiqures correct and does anyone know the bit rate of 3820?

After I know the bit rates of the transponders, I should be able to approximate the bit rates of the channels. However, I don't understand the Digicipher 2 in Starz, HBO, and Cinamax. Is that just the formater?

Thanks

Mike
