The Apollo 11 event has started on the SD channels, but HD still has just the slate, so I guess no HD for this.

Flight Day 1

The HD service followed the SD service all day up through launch and post-launch briefing, including HD shots where available but also including SD shots, PAO commentary, etc., just like recent launches.  AFTER the briefing, however, they went to slate and they have stayed on slate since then.

There was NO appearance of any highlights on the HD service at any time overnight.

Yes!  Feeding now!

Started at 12:09 with 15 short excerpts, running about 6 minutes.
Then starting at 12:18 they ran the complete scenes, for one hour.

They then briefly showed a slate (screenshot below) that said they'd be repeating it all day.  Slate says it's an hour long, which may be true for the raw footage, but the whole thing is about 1h06m long.

For anyone coming here from another thread, here is my short FAQ on NASA HD: http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=11551.msg399739#msg399739

STS-127 Launch in HD

H264 encoded, about 524 MB, split with HJSplit (freeware) and you can use that to rejoin the two parts

http://www.filefront.com/14061009/sts127-launch-hd.mp4.001/

http://www.filefront.com/14061143/sts127-launch-hd.mp4.002/

Launch Engineering HD coming later -- as soon as I can get it uploaded to filefront.

No Flight Day 1 HD highlights and it appears HD Flight Day Highlights will begin with Flight Day 3.

In Windows machines, it is trivially easy to rejoin binary files together.  In Windows, open a command prompt and do:

copy /b file1 + file2 + file3 fileresult

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_DOS_commands#copy

This will concatenate the files together.  I used to do it all the time with mp3 captures.  The result will be free of glitches.

I won't be able to monitor the HD feed (and report on it) here during the next four days.  I'll be back on Wednesday morning.

STS-127 Launch Engineering in HD (H264 encoded 720p)

I only included the HD replays and kept NASA's short title between replays to identify the camera position.

I used HJSplit (freeware) to split the files, it can be rejoined using HJSplit.

Surprising, there doesn't appear to be any FD3 HD highlights.

I recorded the 1am CT feed and when there was no feed, I checked the latest TV schedule and saw they moved the time.  I set up a recording for 2 hours starting at that new time and there was nothing either.

With docking and greetings, I can't believe there is no HD material to be fed.

There also don't appear to be any FD4 HD highlights, either.  Maybe STS-127 wasn't trained on shooting/downlinking HD material.  I"ll keep recording the HD times listed in the tv schedule just in case, but I think the next HD we are going to get will probably be the landing if it happens at KSC.

still no HD video on the HD channel for the FD highlights (and I keep checking for revised tv skeds in case of time changes). 

NASA gets off the hook by saying "if available" but I wonder what the deal is because this mission is very unusual with regards to HD.  I wonder if they are having tech problems turning the HD downlinks around to the HD channel or editing the HD FD highlights packages.

...or on-board, they're just not generating much HD video....

I'm back, and have HD history / capture back to Sunday July 19th 12:20pm.  In general they have stayed in slate the entire time since then, with the following exceptions:

Sun 19-Jul 15:57 - 16:07 :  static LC39A pad shot with 1 kHz tone
Sun 19-Jul 20:08 - 21:38 :  Apollo 11 anniversary at Smithsonian (1st event)
Mon 20-Jul 20:17 - 21:50 :  Apollo 11 anniversary at Smithsonian (2nd event)
Tue 21-Jul nothing all day
Wed 22-Jul nothing so far

In addition to the ideas above as to why they haven't had any HD highlights, my guess is that they have limited resources (either labor or HD edit suites) and have been too busy with the Apollo 11 activity.  We'll see!

This afternoon ISS downlinked aprox 20 min of HD video recorded during EVA 3.

Wonder if it will show up on tomorrows HD Highlights segment.

FYI, I've now heard that the ISS HD video MPC (Multi-Purpose Converter) is down.  There's probably evidence of this in reports on L2, but I'm too busy to go hunting.  If someone finds something let me know!  I'd expect that with the STS-127 mission, CDRA trouble, ECLS hiccups, etc., getting HD video down is the least of their concerns.

i'll go hunting in a little while to see what I can find.

If the MPC being down is the case, I hope NASA takes the tapes when STS-127 returns to earth and has a special HD feed of some of that material.  No PAO is fine, but I"d like to see HD material of docking, spacewalks, life in space, undocking HD material.

Is that the reasons that it no HD events (media interviews) more come from the ISS.

Does a space shuttle not have its own HD downlink equipment by ISS missions?
