5 SD & 1 HD stream are testing on 12422H 27500.

The streams are (currently) labelled 6802 through to 6811, with 6811 being the HD stream.

ATM all of them are just showing the BBC RED BUTTON logo

If you hang on they'll show up in the channel lists. I think it's up in the 600s or 700s. The red button channels used to be in the 300s but they moved and I can't remember to where!

i think the red buttons channels will be after the other regional channels in the freesat epg but anyway i managed to get the streams scanned in via the fta mode on my humax hb-1000s.

What's more odd is that they are using the TP on the European beam.

12422H has always been on the European beam. Maybe its used to deliver the Wimbledon content to other broadcasters.

That makes more sense. Certainly in the old days it was on a European one.

They will be added up in the 900s on the satellite platform epgs before Wimbledon or Glastonbury starts (whichever one comes first - neither interests me so I dont bother keeping up on the dates..

Dunno - I dont bother with epg numbers as I almost always use one of my fta boxes. The missus monopolises the Sky box :D

Chances are they will be somewhere around where they were last year.
