It seems like the exotic stuff (3D, 4K) would be better placed in the exotic bands (I'm thinking RDBS) so that they can outfit those who can use it (a vanishingly small number) with special LNB assemblies and not take away bandwidth from the "conventional" satellites.

IIRC, Phil Goswitz commented on that issue as well. That the RDBS band was destined to be used for HD/SD International programming.

That is as an eventual replacement for the present SD only World Direct dish and service at 95w.

Some of you may have noticed you a few of your posts missing from this thread. I have deleted them not because of the content you posted but rather for other reasons that I can not go into.

If you have any questions please PM me.

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

I'm not sure of how many locals across the country Directv gets via MPEG-4, but I know here in Huntsville, they get the locals via OTA at their call center, and that's MPEG-2.

Could you give at least one example where [free] OTA is in MPEG-4/H.264 video compression ?

If you could give at least one example when OTA is in MPEG-2/H.263 video compression....


P. Smith;

Correcting for grammar and the ITU-T's "H" series number for the MPEG 2 standard http://en.wikipedia....2/MPEG-2_Part_2.

Do you mean above;

"Can you give at least one example where OTA DTV is not in MPEG-2/H.262 video compression....?"

I can't name any, I'm just replying to comments made on the 2nd page of this thread. Network may be sending their stuff to affiliates via MPEG-4, but I don't know of a single one (affiliate) that sends Directv a MPEG-4 feed.

We don't have participants here like station engineers at AVS forum; perhaps real knowledgeable ppl could enlighten us ? Who knows perhaps inside station's infrastructure they using H.264 equipment, say for store old content/archiving ...
