    Anyone have a clue what channel number 4seven will launch on in 2 weeks?

    269 – it’ll replace More4 +2 (unless C4 have a mini reshuffle up their sleeves of course)

  2. What about G2 spec is there any chance it’s coming soon

    Also is there any info – about pick tv or challenge coming to freesat

  3. admin said: I’m led to believe it will be slot 127.

    That is the current channel number for Sky, so is it going to be the same on Freesat?

    Eh?
    How did you work that out? This is Freesat, not Sky, do keep up

    Not likely. No Sky channel has ever come to Freesat epg even as a barker channel which is all Pick is.
    G2 is coming soon (apparently) but how soon who can say. STV HD and YouView have been coming soon for over a year and still no sign of them.

    Oops – apologies – wasnt thinking there was I 😮 😀

  7. Hi just seen google tv coming soon
    As I’m to believe the G2 is gonna be like this hope they get here soon or they may be behind before they even start

    Freesat does not use channel 269 does it?

  9. 4Seven is now being promoted on C4’s main channel, talks about launch on the 4th but with no LCN’s mentioned for any platform yet! I’m presuming it too will launch on 127 as it’s been reserved since the C5 channel launches back in December.

  10. StarPlus HD now encrypted

    And according to Channel4, new channel, 4Seven will indeed launch on 127

    Have C4 put their FS LCN on to a press release as I can’t find it listed on their site? Caught a bit of StarPlus HD this morning as not had the chance to see it with being out of the country, very impressive PQ whilst it lasted FTA.

  12. Star Trek Voyager starting on Monday 2nd July on CBS Action a much better channel than the non Freesat Pick Sky barker channel.

    Why are C4 lauching another (yawn) SD channel at this time in history all new services going forward should be HD. You can’t turn back the clock and yes I know all the arguments for and against HD.

  14. Yep, another Repeats/Catch up service, I guess a positive is that its another EPG slot being filled along with revenue for Freesat. Also easier for people who are’nt hooked up to Ch4’s 4OD service via internet to catch up too.

    The upside of this channel is that it will show C4’s other factual programming rather than the inane lifestyle type stuff they just tend to show these days! I was disappointed to see Despatches seems to have had the chop down to 30 mins too now! 🙁

    There will be some movement on the HD side of things from C4 as your right, HD is the way forward and with the major PSB’s all going for HD commissions only it’s about time their sister channels all had HD equivalents on Satellite where the bandwidth exists.

  16. ITV1 HD in non mode freesat shows no signal also the red button not working for HD on ITV1 London freesat mode.

  17. Thanks to Rob for this info.
    UPDATE 29/06/12 It is back! STV HD has returned to Astra 1N frequency of 10.936 V, the channel is still named ‘3855’ and has the same PIDS as it had before it was removed, 10.936 V has changed parameters to DVB-S2, SR 23.000, FEC 8/9, this change means STV HD cannot be manually added to the UK’s Sky Digital receivers also it still cannot be added to the UK’s Freesat receivers (excepting the Humax brand), you need a DVB-S2 compliant free to air receiver to view this channel.

    29/06/12 They did it this time, Astra 1N at 28 degrees east frequency of 10.936 Vertical has changed parameters, it is now in DVB-S2 with a Symbol Rate of 23.000 and FEC of 8/9, all channels have returned, these channels on this frequency are still the free to air ITV 1 HD Granada, the encrypted ITV 1 HD Central and the encrypted 3825 (Alibi HD), all the PIDS are the same as they were previously

  18. Just added 3855 STV HD and ITV HD to my Manhattan favourites list again so its not just the Humax as Rob says.

    Rob has updated the above: UPDATE 29/06/12 It is back!

LOL!, many thanks to all who mailed me clarifying the different ‘Freesat’ branded receivers capabilities regarding STV HD.

  20. As the symbol rate has changed it looks like my BS750 has the same symptoms as previously whereby as there’s no SID change the unit won’t recognise the new DVB-S2 parameters as it still thinks it’s DVB-S. The solution to this with the BBC HD Txp modulation change was a complete reset which I’m not really in the mood to do this time as took ages!! Seen as I rarely record anything on ITV1 and can still get ITV1HD fine through both my Panasonic TV’s, which handled the changes fine, I’ll hang fire for a while as ITV1HD Granada may not remain on this Transponder for too much longer now Sky are filling it with another subscription HD channel.

    Thank you

    Once again confirmed that its either an issue with my box or the latest firmware.

    I’ve added the first 9 BBC olympic streams as shown at

    http://en.kingofsat.net/find.php?question=olympics&Submit=Zap

    I pressed saved and they were added to my all channels list. I then deleted all of them, and once again manually scanned for them. I once again selected save and this time they were not added to my all channel list.

    I then added all the HD streams currently available and I won’t be deleting any of them.

    I’ve now notified Samsung that it’s a firmware bug.

  23. Hello all,

    I just bought a Manhattan Plaza HDR-S as I was sick of sky’s prices, I am very impressed with the box so far, but I really want to be able to see Dave and Yesterday channels, I did a automatic tune of non freesat channels but they were not picked up, I wonder if anyone can tell me how I add those channels please ? A friend can view them on his freeview box he got from a bootsale for £3 ! thanks in advance.
    Rob.

    You can’t, they are not available on freesat due to their subscription agreement on satellite with BSkyB.
