34 Second Slip in Mpeg 4 and 31 Second Slip in Mpeg 2. Is it really that difficult to write the programming code to accurately accomplish a 30 Second Slip?

Also, with the new HD channels in Mpeg 4 coming soon, what is being done to fix auto correction and trick plays for Mpeg 4? Mpeg 2 trick plays are fairly smooth.

Just curious. Thanks.

Actually... yes... because of VBR (variable bitrate) compression, and the way the MPEG codecs work....... Yes... it is a little more difficult then you may think it would be.

As for for the MPEG-4... have you seen the latest CE's ?
They are improving the MPEG-4 Trickplay.

Any chance they will get the Skip response time back down to 1 second flat? It is back up to 1.85 seconds per Skip (Advance) button press...
