Thanks chef :flower:; actually BBC are having test transmissions now in the London (Crystal Palace) area and I'm thinking to sit down with a wet towel around my head and receive it.
If you have a BDA-compatible PC DVB-T card (Nebula, Hauppauge or even Medion hybrid), you can pick up data on UK channel 31 (non-sat).
Currently the best H.264 decoder is supposed to be Elecard (although still not great), but many others like Cyberlink are expected to become improved.
The H.264 kit from DBV Viewer can also work well with their superb software. If I understand correctly from the DVB Viewer site, it's possible to get test transmissions via satellite too, at least as far as the Netherlands...
