Well, no immediate switch to 1920x1080, all three channels still running at 1440x1080, BBC HD was just peaking at almost 18Mb/s though, an especially frantic sequence from Top Gear in the Preview, just happened to be what my test recording caught, hope that's not a temporary mistake on BBC's part.
All works fine, although I had to do a full rescan & delete off air channels in the end, this means I need another re-scan existing transports after 7pm to get the part time channels back.
Hoping that the new web controlled backend allows more granular scans, a tuned scan without having the scan automatically zoom off to all other muxes would be great but I'm sure the relevant devs know that already.
