Adding channels on SkyHD box

I see a long list of channels to add (apparently radio stations) but after adding them as the menu says they don't appear at all in the channel lineup. Is there something wrong or do I need to go thru a more complex method?

They will not appear on the standard EPG, there is an option in the services menu to see the "Other Channels", select that and then you will see the manually added lineup.

The list you are working from may not be upto date, channels that may have been testing or been FTA may now be FTV or subscription.

How to update it?




What is this list you are working from?
Is it off a website/magazine or have you already entered some tuning specs and you are seeing the transponder results?

It shows 25plus channels on the FIND CHANNELS menu. They are all there, radio channels all. I just add them and they show as added, only a few of them work. If you have the box go and take a look. My box was installed a week ago.

Ah:)


You are just clicking find channels with the default settings in the menu?
If that is the case then all those channels are on transponder 4 and are probably all on the EPG already, some are encrypted and others are in the clear.


On the Add Channels screen enter these settings..

10.714
H
22.0
5/6

Then click on Find Channels, you will see 8 channels listed. Select a few with the yellow button then press Select. When you get the confirmation go back to the Services menu and selct Other Channels and you will see the ones you selected.

Would it be possible for me to manually add BBC HD here in Ireland just as I can manually add the ITVs etc
