Above is wrong its on 12295 H, D1 doesn't have an 11 GHZ band. Josh you are set to the wrong LNBF type or  l.o setting,

I know this is supposed to be news and exciting. Prime lost me when they arrived at channel 10 of my 8-9 line EPG screen, they where in SD on Freeview HD, and made a song and a dance about not joining Freeview till Freeview could count viewer numbers for their advertising stats, really Prime, you are a broadcaster who wants to reach the audience by any means possible.

You still don't seem to get it as I don't see a Prime ondemand service, Android, iOS, Amazon Fire apps, etc, so you are still missing out on audience.

I would be very happy if they go HD - SD does look pretty ropey these days.

HD is good news for me...I've always felt the quality of their SD feed was inferior to pretty much every other channel, so HD may be the way to make it bearable to watch.

Good news for me too if it ever happens to the OTA service and not Sky platform only..

I'm watching Mythbusters on Vodafone cable and the picture looks HD and certainly clearer than Prime OTA

I thought OTA Freeview on UHF used H.264.
