I have an MPEG4 receiver (at last) - Humax PR-HD1000.
I can see P7HD again in the EPG and receive the pictures in HD.
Weird stuff 1 - one moment it was at channel 600+, then it re-appeared in the EPG at 184 (I think?).
Weird stuff 2 - HD in 4:3 format? What are they thinking about?
Off to do some more satellite hunting now.
Isn't the 4:3 stuff mainly SD upconverted to HD? AIUI Pro7 HD is the HD version of the regular Pro7 channel, carrying the same schedule.
Shows that Pro7 have in HD are broadcast in HD on the HD channel, but all the other SD shows that Pro7 show are upconverted and also broadcast on the HD channel. If the source show is 4:3 it will be shown 4:3.
Native HD production is not in 4:3 - the only HD 4:3 material that is likely to be broadcast is new transfers of older 4:3 movies. (These, being shot on film, have enough resolution in the original film grain to benefit from an HD transfer over an SD one)
