I had no idea about those channels in the 8000s so I've had a look around, 8050 onwards seems to have lots of the Republic of Ireland advertising versions of channels and the various Channel 4 regions... and STV, which is hiding away on 8076-8079.

Thanks for that! There's a treasure trove of hidden channels, Like ITV1 STV have decided to label their channels as STV HD which makes it harder to decipher the sub-regions unless you're watching the regional news bulletins. The two STV North sub-regions should be easier as one of them is a sub-opt for Dundee and Perth during the STV News at Six while STV Central has two advertising sub-opts, but one news bulletin.

Sky's hidden channels continue past 8080 with Irish versions of the sports channels.

Even more remarkably on 8057 there’s Challenge HD, however it’s the Irish feed, but the UK feed of Challenge on 159 isn’t HD, although it’s still better quality than on DTT or DSat. I do note there are some of Discovery’s channels such as TLC are hidden also, but they are in SD, I can only guess for Irish advertising.

The cloud recordings from Challenge are already from the ROI HD stream.
