I'm writing about a TV broadcast services on the phone. Could you take a look at my sentences and correct them, please?

THANK YOU in advance! Emotion: smile

When provided with low bitrate by the service provider, the quality of the broadcast can be poor.
To receive the best quality broadcast services, you need to be in a service area with adequate signal strength.
(This affects the recording quality of the broadcast.)

You can get a better view of TV by adjusting the LCD compartment degree/position.

* I want my sentences sound professional rather than friendly. (For examle, I am not sure if I can use the word 'poor' as in '...broadcast can be poor')

Hi,

I'm writing about a TV broadcast services on the phone. Could you take a look at my sentences and correct them, please?

Here are some suggestions.

A low bitrate from the service provider may cause poor reception.

For good reception, you need to be in a service area with adequate signal strength.
(This affects the recording quality of the broadcast.)


For a better TV picture, adjust the degree/position setting in the LCD compartment.

Best wishes, Clive
thank you very much CLIVE!

how did 'the quality of the broadcast' sound? is it not so professional?

and how about 'the best quality broadcast services' sound?

I want to know the nuance of the whole sentences, please.

Did you mean to say "bid rate?"
Hi,

The original poster's sentence was this: When provided with low bitrate by the service provider, the quality of the broadcast can be poor.

Your correction was this: A low bitrate from the service provider may cause poor reception.

I presume the poster used the "bitrate" as an uncountable noun and in your response, you put an "a" in front of it, (I think) knowing it is an uncountable noun? If my guess is correct, why did you do it?

From Wikipedia

In telecommunications and computing, bit rate (sometimes written bitrate) is the number of bits that are conveyed or processed per unit of time. In digital multimedia, bit rate is the number of bits used per unit of time to represent a continuous medium such as audio or video. It is quantified using the bit per second (bit/s) unit or some derivative such as Mbit/s.

While often referred to as "speed", bit rate does not measure distance/time but quantity/time, and thus should be distinguished from the "propagation speed" (which depends on the transmission medium and has the usual physical meaning).

I feel this sentence is dangled. One might take this sentence as saying "When the quality of the broadcast is provided with low bit rate by the service provider, it can be poor". I don't think "a broadcast quality" cannot be provided by a service provider. What is provided by the provider should be the broadcast itself.
