GUIDE Plus+ Channel listing for Sky box

3 : Why are some of my channels listed with the wrong preset number?

Your GUIDE Plus+ device will pick up preset numbers for each channel during the automatic channel search that occurs when you complete the basic installation of your unit. It is possible that these preset numbers do not match the presets in your TV or in your external receiver or that you have changed the channel lineup of your TV or your external receiver according to your preferences. However, it is important that the correct preset numbers are listed in the GUIDE Plus+ Editor area. Having the correct presets will ensure that you record from the correct channels and that you tune to the correct channels. Please follow these steps to change the setting manually:

- Use the up and right arrows on your remote control to access the Editor area from the main menu bar.
- Select the channel that you would like to change.
- Use the green button and the number keys to change the preset number according to the settings in your region or your preferences.

I've recently purchased a Sony RDR-HXD870 Recorder and soon realised that many of the GUIDE Plus+ channels (as downloaded) were wrong for Sky, so I spent a while running through the channel listings and reset them all to the correct channels (for England)

:lesson: To do this with the Sony, press "Guide" on your remote, followed by "arrow up" and 5x "arrow right" and you'll be in the editor.:lesson:

Not all Sky channels are available in GUIDE Plus+
the official list (though not complete is here http://www.europe.guideplus.com/En/help/clu_uk.html )


So here are two lists that are correct at the time of writing, one in channel order, the other as they appear in GUIDE Plus+ on my Sony which is possibly a more easy to use list if yours is in the same order (PS I'd be interested to hear from people in this thread if the second list does match their listing)
