Last Update - Dec 2018
During January 2019 Sky TV has been making changes to their Satellite Transmission in preparation for the changeover to DVB-S2 in March of this year. The effect of these changes has been to cause some channels to receive sound but no picture.
Due to the further and final changes to take place we will not produce any new channel lists for these models until the changeover is completed at the end of March. Therefore to obtain these altered channel transmission it is simply a case of carrying out a simple scan. This will bring in the new transmissions in the current order and will also add these channels again at the end of the channel list. All the channels will then operate correctly.
Once the DVB-S2 changeover is complete then we will load the new channel list for our customers to download and reflash their TVs and receivers.
