I thought you might all be interested in this: http://www.techhive.com/article/204...eneck-getting-content-to-the-home-at-ifa.html Eutelsat was demonstrating its 4xHD 4K service and Astra had an HEVC channel setup. The DVB Forum folks said they are moving towards getting HEVC into DVB-S2 rather than defining a new transmission standard. I guess something like DVB-S2 v2. I also discovered something I didn't know: DVB-S2 has an optional hierarchical modulation method that allows backwards compatibility with DVB-S receivers. I presume this is something that is not widely used, because I don't recall ever seeing a mention of it.
