John, do you know how E-VSB as currently defined compares
with DVB-H? I don't. I'd have to dig into this to figure
it out.

Here's the E-VSB side. Maybe you can enlighten us on the
equivalent DVB-T/DVB-H tradeoff?

I'm just picking two values of robust stream, and the
wide stream is supposed to be as robust as it is when
the entire band is wide stream.

For 542 Kb/s robust stream using 1/2 additional FEC,
wide stream (2/3 FEC) is 18.1 Mb/s

For 542 Kb/s robust stream using 1/4 additional FEC,
wide stream (2/3 FEC) is 16.9 Mb/s

For 1.08 Mb/s robust stream using 1/2 additional FEC,
wide stream (2/3 FEC) is 16.9 Mb/s

For 1.03 Mb/s robust stream using 1/4 additional FEC,
wide stream (2/3 FEC) is 14.7 Mb/s

ISDB can assign 1/13th of the COFDM carriers to the
robust stream. So if you start with a 19.7 Mb/s
wide channel, and want to keep its robustness
unchanged, you should be left with 18.1 Mb/s in the
wide stream.

The robust stream's carriers now carry 1.5 Mb/s if
it remains at 3/4 FEC and 64-QAM, which would be
paired down to whatever robustness level you want.
For example, to compare apples with apples, retain
64-QAM but increase the FEC by an additional 1/2
will result in 758 Kb/s in the robust stream.

But the robust stream will lose some more due to
the RS block that needs to be created, so I'm not
sure there's a huge difference here, in terms of
bit rates anyway.

Not that I'm suggesting this should be done. Just
comparing bit rates for fun.
