      Just testing or a full service?

      Re: BBC Satellite Frequency Changes

      I put the channel details into Add Channels and BBC1 is being broadcast on 'ETV5'. Looks more SD than HD though just now, comparing the One Show to the live broadcast on BBC HD.

      Frequency: 10.78800 GHz
      Vertical polarisation
      Symbol rate: 22.0 Mbaud
      FEC 5/6

      [EDIT] The BBC page is a bit confusing
      BBC1 HD settings will be
      Frequency: 10.84700 GHz
      Vertical polarisation
      Symbol rate: 22.0 Mbaud
      FEC 5/6

      Nothing there yet except BBC HD and a mirror (6945) that's been around for ages...
