    What are the framerates that the TiVo outputs at it's various ports?
    Or does this depend on the cable company?

    Thanks! :)

    Do you mean bitrate? The framerate is dependent upon the format in which it was broadcast (approximately 60fps for progressive or 30fps for interlaced). The bitrate is whatever the broadcaster decides to use for any given broadcast, which can vary widely.

    Actually, it is 59.9 frames per second, regardless. If the signal is interlaced, each frame consists of a field which displays only every other line on the screen. The next frame displays all the lines not displayed on the previous frame, each frame is known as a "field" and the entire picture is the sum of both fields. If it is non-interlaced, then each field contains the entire set of lines. For a given resolution, a non-interlaced signal thus requires twice the bandwidth of an identical interlaced picture.

    That's backwards. The full picture is a frame. When it is interlaced, each 1/2 frame is a field. Standard NTSC frame rate is @29.97 fps.

    So does "120 Hz" TV make any difference? Since all the video is 30 FPS?
