The satellite service will be DVB-S not S2, and is on the same
transponder as BBC ONE CB and BBC ONE CI. This is there for you to
receive off-air right now.
The DVB-T service will be on a new multiplex in London only, and will
be up very very soon. If you are using a DVB card which feeds the
whole TS to the computer (e.g. Nova-T) then it matters not to the card
whether it is SD or HD. I would also guess that if you have a card
with an MPEG2 decoder then there must be a way to get data PIDs in
their raw form from the TS as this is what must happen to
The question is whether mythtv will recognise the service and stream
types which have been allocated in the UK for HD services and for
h.264 AVC streams. I would guess not at the moment, so they will be
ignored. Can anyone answer this?
Neither of these channels offically launches for a few days yet,
though there is upconverted BBC1 content there at present for testing.
