I am not even sure what the current defaults are. I have been using
my HD-PVRs since before Myth had defaults for the HD-PVR :-)
As far as what the defaults should be, that is a good question. I
would assume most people using the HD-PVR are more concerned with
quality than file size. Personally, I use max bitrate VBR by default,
and max bitrate CBR for "high quality" (e.g. sports events).

Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
