StarzHD and NFLHD are of "real" h.264 type. No video feeds on 129 for these yet, just channel description.

National Geographic and HGTV HD are of "fake" h.264 type (meaning mpeg2 video but only available to ViP receivers). Both of these have video streams uplinked on 129. Video is encrypted, so can't check resolution information. Video bitrate is averaging around 11Mbit.

It makes sense that perhaps Starz-HD will be the 1st real H.264 channel. The reason is that it has less subs so if something goes wrong they minimize the impact.

New thread at Avs quoting JohnH's findings, but no credit to him... Here

Credit is given there. So after this uplink activities happen how long does it take to get the new channels. In other instances how loang has it taken to go from new uplink activity to turning them on.

I heard a few weeks ago they were trying to decide between National Geographic and MHD.

Glad they chose National Geographic. :)
