It's only a trial service at the moment and subject to change. This from the recent Dept of Comms Saorview content consultation.

The sample mux information from RTÉ indicates the HD Mux will use approx 6.00 Mbps, at the moment it's using almost 7.5 Mbps (wow factor during the trial at a guess) and the others will use approx 2.00 Mbps.

3e was also included.

Yes, I have TV3e, but all the RTE Digital Radio apart from RTE Pulse are gone. Only 13 Channels. However this is a nearly 9 year old laptop. I'll recheck on "proper computer" later!

VBR is very variable "Good" HD can vary from 0.5Mbps to 10Mbps even if average is 6Mbps. A good Stat mux helps

Rescanned. All 17 services there still. Surprised to see 3e so early. How many would desert the pay TV platforms now if you told them ALL the Irish channels were now on DTT, plus a Freesat box would look after your UK channels need.

EDIT: noticed its not autoswitching to the correct aspect ratio. FYI, normally 4:3, is stretched widescreen. Seems to be the opposite of 3e on Sky, where everything goes to 4:3 regardless of content.

That depends on what you are using to receive DTT.
