Some trailers really look crap, at least they are promising all the WC games in HD.
Eson, Great news isn't it. You posted while I was trying to attach a few screen grabs to my post, without success.
I'm showing that as Premiere Direkt at the mo, is this the same channel (just so I can save it?)
Hi Steve, There are two channels on the transponder, one SD and the other HD. Premiere Direkt is the SD channel. The HD channel is a bit obscure, it appears without a video PID but there is another video channel on the transponder (02FF hex) and this is the HD video.
I guess that means I may struggle finding it with my Quali-TV STB then..
Hi, I Recorded the stream using MyTheatre and tried playing it back in Elecard V3.0 but it does not play correctly it keeps pausing. Any one had better luck.
When using MyTheatre it will not show the video, again I am using the Elecard codec & the video PID is 02FF
Sorry - I don't follow: How can you watch it if it has no video pid?
I can't see anything on My Theatre or ProgDVB. I have tried manually editing the Video PID to 02FF (767) but that doesn't work.
I don't think Mytheatre supports H264. Make sure you are on channel DPC.TV11.
Then change the video pid to 02FF and recorded the stream using the PID Grabber listed on the actions menu. Then play it back in Elecard Player
I had a look at it.
TSReader confirms 11915 H 27500 3/4
VPID 767 (02FFh) ; PCR PID is same
APID 772 (0304h) with AC3 audio
TSReader gave a screengrab - not a quality transmission at this stage.
After much messing about , at one point I got it live by using TSReader with VLC as the player.
I should have written down what I did 'cos most of the time it crashes VLC
The PIDS also are correctly detected on my Nokia DBOX (a 9500 with DVB2000 firmware) - without crashing it.
Will try again tomorrow on the PC.

Thanks - I managed this. Media Player will also play the recorded stream - but not a smooth playback. The HD quality looks OK (as good as Euro1080).
How to much data rate, used Premiere?
Currently 14.68 Mbps is video stream datarate

Museumsteve, could you finally tune Premiere HD with your quali-tv STB? I cannot...
Fletcher/MuseumSteve: It's not a MPEG2 transmission.....there is no H264 decoder in your receivers. You will not be able to view it.
Gordon, you´re right. So which are the differences between MPEG2 and MPEG4. Does the latter offer superior image quality?
MPEG4 is a newer more efficient compression method. That doesn't necessarily mean better image quality when compared with an MPEG2 broadcast. It is likely to mean that you can get as good quality while sending a lower bandwidth signal though....
I've never seen any comparison myself so cannot comment
I've seen like-for-like running next to each other at trade-shows, and in one-on-one product demos.
Using the same bandwidth, MPEG4 is hugely superior.
Using a much lower bandwidth than same MPEG2 stream, MPEG4 can match the quality of said MPEG2.
H.264 is a very clever ... but not my most favourite video algorithm.
With a modified Skyview exe file and the skyac dll file it is possible to view this mpeg 4 feed. I almost got there from some help on the digispy form but responses dried up, anyone help on here ?
Gordon, Can I get My Quali-tv STB Upgraded to receive MPEG 4. If not Which STB should I be Looking For?
