    Now that ITV is on Sky I wish to access the regional variations. I am currently in the Yorkshire region but in addition I wish to view West Country Television. I have the list detailing frequency, s/r and fec. When I try to input I receive 'No channel found'. Has anyone else encountered this problem.

    I've just tried and it's been added to my "Other Channels" with no problems.
    Are you sure you are using the correct frequency?

    I'm glad someone started this thread again, cos I have an interesting question ;)

    Does anyone know of a website which lists the region variation for a given time? The main ITV website lists this, but it would take 10 minutes to manual check each link!

    With the "multi-region" possibility, it would be useful to know what's on without checking every channel on the box, which isn't easy either! The variations are a lot more than I thought!

    How about looking at Digiguide?

    http://www.digiguide.com

    There is an online version and a desktop app that has a 30day trial and a £5 a year subscription.
    You can add all the ITV regions into a daily planner and compare them at your leisure.

    Thanks Starburst - You are a gentleman! I was entering all settings incorrectly from a list I obtained from SES Astra. I entered you setting and magic - West Country Television!
    Can you tell me where you obtained you listings? Some people are never satisfied!. Seasons greeting to you.

    Re: Xeonic


    The online version is free.
    If you want the standalone version for your PC desktop it's £5 a year but it's excellent value for money since my PC is virtually always running when I'm at home and it's easier to use and has more content than the SKY epg.
