I'm pretty sure that Voom is scrambling and working as fast as possible to stop compressing their broadcasts. Otherwise they wouldn't even be trying to figure out how to implement WM9 or the lastest/greatest MPEG technology. If the additional satellite and dish upgrade actually pans out, we may not even need to worry about new compression schemes. Voom has stated that they will have the capacity for like 96 HD channels when that occurs. Even if they give us some HD on demand (PPV) there is not enough content or providers out there to create 96 channels so hopefully we will have something like 50 quality full bandwidth channels. Some where on this forum I think Vurbano has already laid it out how they could do this. Luckily for me Voom is my only source for HD, ignnorance is bliss. I think this goes for a lot of the people that continue to think Voom's PQ is outstanding. Voom is definitely the best PQ in my HT.
