Brian Geraghty on Morning Ireland discussing this now, all Saorview boxes will require a retune in the coming weeks for RTÉ1 HD which he said will be coming in the new year.
Changes have already happened/happening from Mt L. A retune shows RTE one and RTEjr/one+1 is in the second multiplex

* RTÉjr 0700-1845 approx / RTÉ One +1 1900-0100/0200 approx. Not timesharing on Mux2, static on-air caption on RTÉ1 +1 "This channel is currently off air"
is it actually broadcasting in HD rteone? or is the signal just saying HD?
Its either upscaled or HD, vast improvement on the SD channel which is still broadcasting.
Upscaled HD 1440x1080i, same as RTÉ2.
and more importantly is the DOG back? lol
Where are we living? On the day of the re-tune they announce the re-tune?
In relation to the few channels available there are a number of Irish services that could have launched on Soarview had they been given some support and appeared on other platforms. IMO at least 15 new services. Even for a small country Soarview is bad IMO.
In relation to my figures I quickly said to myself that RTÉ TV had 6 out 9 SD spaces, TV3 had 2 and TG4 had 1 and I divided by 9 to give me the figures I got for the example. Either way any spare capacity is paid for by the broadcasters and 2RN are paid in full for Mux 1 and 2, which was the real point.
No DOG on display on Morning Edition.
News programming never has a DOG/BUG on RTÉ, except Prime Time but I think that is because its Current Affairs!
Don't see the point. One in HD. I New there wundt be much on offer
Notice the New RTE1+1 is now actually broadcasting the "This channel is currently off air" caption as opposed to the MHEG5 message, presumably because of the additional spectrum available?
Ah now that's not quite fair we got a.....
I wonder why they cant actually broadcast RTE+1 24 hours now that they have the space?
