The latest release of Geniatech's eyeTV 3 software reduces the minimum system requirement necessary for H.265 (HEVC) on the new eyeTV T2 and eyeTV Hybrid USB sticks. eyeTV 3.6.9 HEVC (Version 7512) now requires Intel Core i5 running at at least 2.5 Ghz and a minimum of 4GB available RAM, compared with 3.5 GHz and 8Gb RAM in the previous build (7511). Both sticks are now available on both the UK and German versions of Amazon and both sticks would already receive the UK version of DVB-T2 under the previous release. HD in the UK uses the video codec H.264. In Germany, H.265 (HEVC) will be used, for which the stick has been, in the words of the manufacturer, "prepared". Wohnort notes that this latest release brings HEVC reception within the capability of the roving Wohnort MacBook Pro and stick.

System Requirements: eyeTV Version 3.6.8 / OSX 10.11.x

For PC users, Total TV Player is available to download for Windows 8 or later. (2.5 GHz Intel/AMD Core Duo (or similar), 4GB RAM)

Own-brand DAB+ radios
In the UK, the last remaining bastion of died-in-the-wool, "original-flavour"-only DAB receivers is the range of own-brand radios sold by the major supermarket chains. Which brand will be last to switch? With the new UK digital radio tick mark now specifying DAB+ capability (among other welcome things) to qualify, it can't be long now. With DAB+ services already on air across the UK, and more certain to follow, Wohnort recommends that the own-brand ranges be avoided until they include DAB+.

In the week leading up to the 24th, some high-power sites will begin broadcasting a recorded announcement advising of the change.
