James Blair : It is currently only as yet available by inputing the parameters manually when using an FTA or "Freesat" receiver in non "Freesat" mode - renaming and saving the channel. You would need to check the process of adding with a SKY receiver. It's been this way for a while now. Perhaps Brian, or some of the other regular contributors here might have more info to offer on when inclusion on the SKY, Freesat EPG's will be confirmed.

Les Nicol: James - My apologies - You only need to rename and save - the parameters are already set up, but the channel is listed numerically rather than name listed - so once identified simply proceed as mentioned.

STV HD appears to be no longer transmitted from 28,2° East, having left its frequency of 10,936 GHz Vertical on February 17th, 2014.

I do not know why it is shewn as being on the SKY or Freesat EPG since it will not appear there until at least April 2014.

Postings on some other satellite forum sites are suggesting that STV HD may not be transmitted again from 28,2 East until testing begins for the addition of the service to the Freesat EPG and Sky EPG addit in April 2014.

The loss of the STV HD program stream could result in a loss of revenue for STV because viewers wanting to watch ITV networked shows in HD will tune to UTV HD or one of the four ITV HD "regional" services, a habit which STV should surely not want to encourage?

Or maybe the bean counters at STV have esitimated that by not having to pay for transmissions on SES Astra between February 17th (?) and sometime in April, they will break even or even save money?

They are of course still paying for the BISS encrypted transmission on 11,495 GHz Vertical from Intelsat 907 at 27.5° West.

And for the record, the earliest date and time that anybody appears to have noticed that STV HD had gone black from 28,2 East was not February 17th, but 5 days earlier at 13:31h on February, 12th, 2014.

Corin: The version on the Intelsat 907 is the back-up feed for Freeview.

I had no trouble viewing and recording last nights fascinating debate. Easy to tune in once you select the non Freesat made on your satellite tuner..
Why the censorship so only those in Scotland are supposed to see it. What are the other UK broadcasters afraid of? The effects of a yes vote on the rest of UK would be momentous.we see long speeches from overseas politicians, why this so different.
