What is our bit budget and how are we allowed to use it? For example if I want to operate in extended hybrid mode with a bit budget of 151 kbps why can't I use more than 96kbps for multicasting? As I understand it the receivers can't operate in modes like MP4 which would allow it. This is really messed up. A mode which is perfectly acceptable according to the Ibiquity white paper is not in fact implemented by the chip sets which the receivers use. If another chip set is created to implement other parts of the standard then different receivers will have different capabilities. I see consumer confusion and anger on the horizon. Maybe not now--but soon and for a long time to follow.
