I was looking for that page, seems you found it before me.
Note that after a certain point nothing is gained by increasing the
bitrate, the trick is to find "that point".
That chart seems to assume pretty perfect input video, something rarely
encountered in the real world, especially with analog RF input.
I do notice that recordings made from the baseband inputs to my PVR-150s
from a satellite receiver look much better than the ones made with an
analog cable RF input.
