Seven HD: 576p - Dolby Digital 5.1 when available
Nine HD: 1080i - Dolby Digital 2.0 or 5.1 when available
Ten HD: 1080i - Dolby Digital 2.0
ABC HD: 576p - Dolby Digital 2.0 or 5.1 when available
SBS HD: 576p - MPEG CD quality

Nine, Ten and SBS upscale SD content when no HD is available.
ABC upscales some SD content (8pm to 11pm on weekdays, 7:30pm tp 11:30pm on weekends).
Seven displays their "The Great Outdoors" demo loop when no HD is available.

576p and 1080i both run at 50fps.

Just a quick Q.

When you record from Digital TV, do the vids stay the same quality as what they look like live? Or are they slightly compressed?

Thanks.

yes it is the same quality/resolution/audio and it doesn't compress it anymore than what it is (mpeg2) when you record...from personal experience only....am not an expert by any means :lol:
