    What is the highest bitrate you've seen on DVD. I've been doing some comparing and one disc had a 9.9 Mb/second average bitrate. Is that even possible or did the program just measure it wrong.

    That sounds wrong. High contrast scenes might push that bit-rate up to 8 or so...but a 9.9 average? Sounds fishy. Most discs I've bothered to check seem to hold at 4.5 to 5.5 in normal lighted scenes.

    The Usual Suspects SE (Region 2) - 9.25 Mb/s average bitrate. Taking into account the four soundtracks, that's still over 7 Mb/s just for the video.

    City Lights (Image) is almost always above the 9.0 MBS line and often right at 10 MBS.
    It sure does show...while the elements used have a few scars, I didn't see a single instance of edge enhancement, nor did I see any other digital artifacts. This is VERY impressive for a 1992 master of a 1931 film. [​IMG]

    Isn't the Dances With Wolves DTS version known as having a high bit rate?
