It's obvious re-broadcasters transcode dolby E to AC3 like ARD does via hardware.

Sorry, yes I meant any open source decoder for us to use on our PCs or receivers.

Obviously the broadcasters have access to hardware decoders to convert for broadcast.

Wow, I'm so jealous!!!
Now, I see video encoding is MPEG4 instead of MPEG2 4:2:2, so is it safe to presume the multitrack audio is not s302m?

The feed broadcasts at a staggering 40mbps bitrate and two MPEG2 2.0 stereo audio channels plus the s302m coded multitrack 7.1 surround track which I cannot decode on any of my players on my PC.
The picture quality of course is breathtaking!
normally the dolby e track contains 5.1 and a 2.0 surround

checking the 7e feed and the dolby-e track contains a single 5.1 audio mix. Normally there are 2 pgm's PGM 1 - 5.1 PGM2 - 2.0 but not this feed

I think last night it would've been the live Jury version of tonight's semi final rather than a re-run. It'll be the same tomorrow with the live jury final!

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Anyone else getting sound blips every few seconds on SF2 on BBC4 HD? BBC4 SD is fine. SF1 on Tuesday was fine

Yeah it's in 5.1 tonight but cutting out every couple of seconds! Sounds abysmal.

Watched the last song on France 4 and now I'm back on BBC Four HD and it seems to have been rectified! Wonder who screwed up... :D

I recorded the bbc4 version. The sound was so terrible coming from one speaker and breaking up. Glad I saw this thread. I will fast forward to when the sound improves. I wonder which channel will have the better sound tomorrow night?

A selection of the (HD) channels I can receive that are transmitting the final tonight.

From the post earlier in the thread, I was trying to think of countries where it'll be SD only. Croatia and Ukraine itself (the hosts!) are the ones that come to mind. Some have HD but not via satellite (RTP1 HD in Portugal, TV Slovenija 1 HD are ones I can think of).
