    I'm living in the HTV Wales region but for various reasons from time to time need to record the news on the ITV Central region. I can't set up recordings using the programme planner because Sky+ only recognises the ITV region you're living in. Now this doesn't present a barrier when I'm at home - I can get Central from the 'Other Channels' page and record direct on to DVD-R. However, when I'm away from home it's rather harder - I can set Sky up to receive Central and then put the DVD-R on timer, but often this isn't convenient and it isn't totally reliable.

    Please does anyone know of a way of changing the 'ITV default setting' so I can select another ITV region for 103?

    A cheap second Sky box with a registered-in-the-UK card would work but not simplistically. Can you not point a big terrestrial aerial t'ward where you want and record via analogue ?

    Alas no - we had enough trouble over our housing covenant getting the first dish installed!
