So it's been a year and it's back again! :D

As usual there's the high quality broadcast-standard feeds around on 7°E and 10°E.

On 7°E the HD feed is on 10968H 19200 3/4 in DVB-S2, video is MPEG4 AVC 4:2:2 with various MPEG1 Layer 2 audio tracks and also a Dolby E track according to Satelliweb.

On 10°E the back-up HD feed is on 11099H 19200 3/4.

Just wondered if anyone's been picking these up? :) I guess they'll be off-air right now but I'd imagine they'll be on air tomorrow evening and then obviously on Saturday for 20:00 BST.

I'd really like a go at receiving these, especially to record a clean copy in HD on Saturday evening, but I'm stuck with my minidish which I don't think will cut it. ISTR in previous years my 60cm solid dish wasn't enough.

Apparently both are currently active for tonight's Jury Final.

A bit of a long shot but I was just wondering if anybody on the forum would be able to record the final tomorrow night from one of these feeds? Judging by what I guess the bitrate will be, I think the final file size would be around 60GB! I'd post a cheapy USB HDD for it to be transferred onto for me.

Unfortunately I'm limited by dish size rather than equipment otherwise yes!

I do have an 80cm dish but I don't have it to hand over the weekend.

Oh things were so much simpler then - 3 guys and a drummer. No fancy glitter balls, pyrotechnics, and a simple catchy song you can pick up in in a verse. :) :)

And it still sounds great almost 40 years later!

Anyone picking up this year's feeds?

I can't get a sausage on an 80cm dish.

7°E 10967H 19200
10°E 11051H 19200

Apparently 10°E is the stronger of the two but I've only seen success reports from people with 1-1.2m dishes.

Determined to pick these up one year :D Might have to keep an eye on the Bargain Second hand big dishes for sale thread... A 1.2m could maybe double up for Bein Sports (in good weather).

Hmm, I might give 7°E another go tomorrow night then! Optimized my LNB and tried 10°E just before 10:00pm but still got absolutely nothing.
