SID 9000 has now been relabelled as Sly UHD Trial
wonder if some q owners have been selected to trial it under NDA's
no I haven't been asked yet and no sky q box is not picking up this channel as yet
the encrypted pes track has gone and been replaced with an ac3 and mpeg audio track. hevc track looks the same. cant be far away from launching
I see the Hispasat test are now using 15 Mbps, I haven't got a UHD TV, so can't compare that with the current promos on Astra etc.
Wouldn't be surprised if Sly try 15Mbps at some point
PS. Reckon the launch will coincide with the atart of the new footie season, Sly have done a deal with Sony for UHD movies, which are believed to be available round about September time, so they'll want a fair amount of boxes out there so peeps can buy the movies, using the footie as the launch vehicle would achieve this

Sky seem to be showing the Walsall v Barnsley playoff tonight according to the EPG info, and confirmed by a feed.

avc encoded Quad HD is still the prefared UHD feed delievery method. Most is NS3 modulated so gets missed. :(
Hmmm. .... didn't know that about Samsung TVs. I guess using 16apsk and 4:2:2 would rule out anybody else watching it Also there was no audio, still thought they would have scrambled it though.
There have been a couple of 'test' transmissions of Opera/theatre lately using H265, I reckon it will take time for H265 encoders to find their way to flyaways just yet.
FYI, each feed was about 22Mbs, making a total of nearly 90Mbps for full video
was the audio dolby e? normally only 1 of the quadrants will contain an audio track.
The First UHD demo by Eutelsat was quad HD. Samsung Tv's could play this.
I would have though they would use dvb-s2x to squeeze more into the limited bandwidth. HEVC 10bit is the norm.
Now seems to have moved to 11758H 29500 QPSK 8/9 DVB-S2 with ID 9006
Bit rate is now around 40Mbps
