    Hey,

    Not sure if this is happening to everyones STBs, but my Sony seems to be adding loads of Sky channels, including Moviemax, premier MTV sky sports etc... theres no picture coming up, but was curious as to why they would be doing this. incidentally, my old man has a thomson stb and none of these channels have appeared on his box.

    any info would be greatly appreciated.

    I believe Mux 2 is broadcasting old ITV Digital channel info following an engineering cock-up. I've reported the problem to Freeview and Digital 3 & 4 but they've yet to fix it.

    I am also seeing various channels being renamed. For example, "BBC THREE" becomes "BBC CHOICE" and "BBC FOUR" becomes "ITV Digital".

    I started a thread on this over at Digital Spy. See here.
