Tivo Movie star ratings...

Not an issue, more of a curiosity that's niggled me for some time now:

Why are the star ratings that show up for Movies etc only out of 4 stars? In a world that seems to rank movies out of 5 stars, why do Virgin only use 4, and how do Virgin translate a 5 star rating into a 4 star one?

We've covered this before, the company VM uses for the TiVo listings uses reviews from several sources including Variety, Roger Ebert, Leonard Maltin and Videohound to determine the star rating.

Re: Tivo Movie star ratings...

Apologies, I did do a search before posting but couldn't find anything. In fact, even a Google search only throws up this thread as anything useful!

I'd not heard of any of those sites, and i'm still curious as to why only 4 stars!

Thanks anyway!
