I appreciate the clarification. I apologize if what I said came across as a blanket statement; it wasn't my intention. Poor wording.57 said:It is my understanding that the major US cable companies also don't compress. It has been mentioned that some cable companies that are short on bandwidth do compress, but let's not make any "blanket statements" that give the incorrect impression.
I always considered if it wasn't RAW then it's compressed. Just not good with the technicalities of this stuff.
