    Recently obtained an old sky box and card to attach to the dish which previous occupant had. I've never had satellite tv before but was pleasantly surprised when it all seemed to work ok :thumbsup:.

    However, when looking at the channel listing on the TV guide all the terrestial chanels occupying the first couple of pages seem to be of the Welsh variety:confused:. Is this something to do with the card in the receiver? Can I change the channel listing manually? Do I just need to press a button to reset it to a more local-friendly chanel listing (for local people)?

    If you can stop laughing long enough to reply I'd appreciate some guidance:lease:.

    Spookily, I am similar but no sky card. I realise I will only get FTA (no C4 or C5) but BBC1 London and ITV W.Midlands when I want the South/Meridian versions. I connected the phone line in case that was the key.. but I'm still none the wiser so :lease: here too

    Having searched around around the forums a bit, it seems that the channel listings are tied to the card (ie post code of where it was first registered) and I would probably have to contact Sky and re-register the card or something.

    I can probably live with just storing the local varieties in the favourite channels slot, so I'm sorted for now.
