Hi all.  Neither a newbie nor an expert here, so I feel the need to
ask all you experts ...
A few months ago I realised that better resolution video was possible
by using dashfhd1, than what I'd previously been using.
It works well and the 1920 x 1080 video is lovely.
It does take up a lot of space though, and now I'm seeing 2:1 space
differences between different programs recorded the same way. Three
examples below ...

PID Type Name Episode Versions Duration Channel Time Added Filename Mode

First this is THE REPAIR SHOP, file explorer shows 1.39GB, 28mins50

Third this is SAVING LIVES AT SEA, file explorer shows 3.20GB,
58mins45secs, 1920x1080, 7790kbps, 50fps
m001bvr8 tv Saving Lives at Sea: Series 7 03. Caught Out
audiodescribed,original 3540 BBC Two 3d 21h ago

So summarising .....
REPAIR SHOP            1.39GB  29mins 6901kbps
FAKE OR FORTUNE   1.67GB 58mins 4099kbps
SAVING LIVES ..         3.20GB 59mins  7790kbps

Clearly the kbps is the critical factor.  So I guess this is quite
outside my/our control?  Or is there a way I can ask get_iplayer to
downrate the SAVING LIVES AT SEA recording (for example) so that it
still saves at 1920x1020 resolution, but at a lower bitrate?

             Thanks all      ... David
