How do change the channels 101 to 103 to the correct regional varients?
Just call Sky and tell them to change your address to one in the location you wish to have the 101 and 103 channels configured for.
If it's FreesatfromSky (fSfS) call 0870-606 1111
I bought the card with the digibox second hand so I don't know how I'd get on with that.
I assume that there is some requirement for a phone (landline) too - which I don't have now.
There is no requirement to have a phone line if you don't subscribe.
If you card is not a FreesatfromSky (fSfS) card, you can get one from the number for just ÃÂ£20.
So you're saying if I call Sky, they can sort something out even if I didn't buy the card direct from them?
Only Sky can change the settings on the card. There is nothing else you can do. If the card is a FreesatfromSky (fSfS) card then you have the right to change the details, if it is an ex-subscription card then you will need to get a new one, for ÃÂ£20.
Merfyn Jones: You may be able to avoid the BBC West Midlands signal being picked up by having the aerial unplugged during the scan.
Winter Hill (BBC North West/ITV Granada) are on high channels, and so are picked up near the end of the scan.
At your location you "may" be able to receive BBC West Midlands from two transmitters:
- The Wrekin on UHF channel 26 (514MHz)
- Sutton Coldfield on C43 (650MHz)
Which you have will probably be given on the signal strength screen (channel number and/or frequency).
Start the scan off with the aerial unplugged and plug in at 50%. There is a very narrow window between the highest Sutton Coldfield channel and lowest Winter Hill one.
If, having done this, you are missing some channels then you may be able to manually add them (if the set has manual tuning) or plug the aerial in a little sooner.
