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+.
Caveat emptor!

In Italy, a new transmitter has been brought into service in Südtirol (Alto Adige). Hühnerspiel on Block 10B is broadcasting the ensemble RAS1-DAB and its combination of services from Italy, Switzerland and Germany. With its very high elevation and fortuitous outlook, the Hühnerspiel was an important FM site in the 1980s, before the liberalisation of broadcasting in Germany and Austria. In those days, Italian-based commercial broadcasters were able to reach listeners in Austria and parts of southern Bayern, where at the time only public-sector broadcasts were available. According to reception reports from the region, the Hühnerspiel is providing excellent DAB+ coverage in Innsbruck, including the centre of the city, its Bahnhof and also surrounding areas. It is also possible that the ensemble may be receivable in favourable locations in southern Bayern. With transmissions from Austria's own national multiplex having begun in December, this new site in Italy more than doubles the number of services available in Innsbruck.
