Question Audio torrents - rules clarification required

I've got a number of broadcasts recorded in the UK, from the digital TV broadcasting system we know as Freeview. Regular TV aerial feeds into set-top box, which outputs a 48kHz PCM signal, which I feed to the digital input on my Alesis Masterlink, which obligingly records at the sample rate fed into it, and performs sample rate conversion at the rendering stage of writing to CDR. TV programmes and radio programmes are both carried in the digital multiplexes.

I'm sure the 48kHz feed to the Masterlink and all that follows is acceptable, but I'm not sure if the signal between transmitter and my set-top box (digibox) is subject to any mpeg encoding or similar.

If any UK readers know, and can clarify, please do; otherwise, I'll keep googling to see what I can find.

Can I provide a sample to someone for a spectral analysis? I don't have a clue what I'm looking for with these spectral graphs.

In the absence of anything definite, can I claim 'it sounds alright to me' and upload it anyway....? Maybe not.

Regards, Graham
