Default New transponders - technical info

MC have added 2 transponders on the new bird overnight.
11848V - it will be for some sort of HD related use.
11888V - SD related.

Note that current settings for some of the 2P and 4P decoders won't allow for use of both these transponders yet, if they end up for our actual use. (More would be posted in time if need be.)

This does not mean that we are getting any new channels, certainly nothing has been added that I've seen in that respect.
But, as usual, I'm sure some will speculate in this thread
This may just be for things like expanded VOD streams options for the various packages / countries involved.

Lastly, the old test transponder 12593H has been removed... yay! IMO.

A few test channels have since been added... and that's all it will likely be, these are now the first Hi Band related tests (MC's version of what is Hi Band) on the public accessed platform and we were told that Hi Band is still quite a long time off. So can just be ignored for now.

I think it's time for a preparation thread though: Preparing for Hi Band (NOT an immediate need)
