Looks like this mux just came on the air, reported yesterday.
Booming in on the Openbox S9, a nice strong/clean signal.

If that sticks around, it could be very promising!

yeah, not sure what the deal is. Keep an eye on it for a while if status changes I'm sure u'll hear about it here, no doubt...
There was another Mux reported with CBC feeds also, on 4040H at the same time as 4160H, but it looked dead to me when I was looking.
So be on the lookout..possible it may have been CRC, or CBC French feeds?

Edit: Found the French Feeds. Again a very strong/clean signal

7.5' (2.4m) Perfect 10 Antenna
I must say, this looks like the strongest / Highest Quality DVB-S2 signal I have ever seen.
Signal 88% / Quality 85%, without even trying to tweak (The Openbox S9 indication is rarely ever over 80% Qual for DVB-S2 on my antenna)
So, I wouldn't be surprised if they were targeting smaller CBAND dish setups.
I don't know if there's any DVB-S2 signal that might come in on CBand with the smaller dishes and conical scalar ring, but from what I've seen so far, I'm thinkin this would be a good one to shoot for if that's all u have available.
If aiming for the first time with a smaller CBand Dish, one could shoot for a strong DVB-S QPSK signal on the same bird first, then optimise from there once found if necessary.
Weather Network's a good strong one.
4100 V 28346
DVB-S QPSK

I hope these feeds stay open... It would allow those outside of the OTA coverage area to have CBC programming without expensive infrastructure we would all have to pay for. Many isolated communities and rural residents have old C-band dishes still set up and usable; with a $300 investment in a HD receiver and LNBF they can have what most Canadians have.
Would be interesting to see how many viewers there would be.

Agreed! I firmly believe all Canadians should have FREE access to CBC/SRC and these channels should be available via FTA for those who don't live near any CBC tower (besides it is a bit ironic that our taxes are supporting a station some can't get).

Cheers, K

Broadcasting at about 10.7mbit. Good bitrate. But not quite as good as the OTA transmitters broadcasting at about 16mbit

Lets not get too excited guys. An unencrypted HD feed of the CBC, is still the CBC.

Yes. And some of us have no CBC OTA anymore, so it could be a very good thing! Well, maybe if it were not c-band.

From what I've read, the new CBC transmitters that cut over recently are transmitting 720p, not 1080i like the earlier stations. Perhaps the bit rate is lower, too?

Isn't H.264 MPEG4? That could account for the different data rate, too.
