Hi, I am having huge problems with reception on ITV channels. All other channels seem to be fine, even though I have unplugged, taken out the aerial, scanned for channels, put the aerial back in and rescanned for channels. I'm not really sure what to do next. Can you help. My postcode is LS12 5RY

Raba: Sorry, but you can't watch the UK channels from the Astra 2 satellite cluster from Ghana as you are outside the satellite's reception "footprint".

dave baber: No, but you can use your "old" Sky box to watch the free-to-air channels by connecting it to a spare output on your satellite dish. This will allow you to watch any free channel in the kitchen, independent from the main TV.

KARL: No, that's it. You will need to pay Sky the extra £10 a month to watch the HD channels aside from BBC One HD, BBC HD, ITV1 HD and Channel 4 HD.

Sue: Not all the Red Button services are on Freesat, as they are carried on an encrypted Sky transponder.

I have two Digiboxes, a Thomson DSI 4210 and a Technomate TMS-1500CI+, connected to different dishes. The Thomson (SKY) brought up error 29, "No Satellite Signal is being received". I connected the Technomate to the Sky dish and cable, and all (or most) of the freeview channels work perfectly (obviously not the SKY channels). I took the Thomson to my dish and installation provider, they plugged it in in front of me and it worked perfectly! I have brought it home and plugged it back in, same old error 29. Plugged the SKY dish/cable into Technomate and it works fine.
Any suggestions where I should look to resolve this problem? My logic tells me the Thomson is faulty - Freeview works on Techniomate but not on Thomson, with the same dish and cable . . . but Thomson worked in the installers office!
And is there a CAM (Conditional Access Module) which I could use with the Technomate to watch Sky channels through the Technomate? If so, where can I get one and any idea of price.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
