i don't know if this is a problem or not, but i just played a sample i recently encoded with Tok on my tv and it looked a lot worse than it did when i played it on my computer.

isn't it supposed to be the other way around

That's right
What resolution did you encode, and what was your CQ

If your player and TV can play NTSC, did you also encode at 23.976fps instead of 25fps

Well, if you encode at 23.976fps, you're going to get a higher CQ, and better quality
Try a small clip first to see if 23.976fps plays smoothly

i never guessed that a small change like that could do so much
