We often get asked what changes were made when a rescan is requested on your Freesat receiver, so thought it might be a good idea for us to post the changes up as the software itself doesn’t really give much information which is a shame. We’ll try to update you on these either just before or just after they go live.

    Thank you. This is very helpful.

    Thanks for the update. I know it would never happen, but I wish they would get rid the the shopping channels.

    Not to everyone’s taste but bare in mind that these channels pay for inclusion on the EPG and without them would Freesat be a viable service?!?!


  4. Allan Says:

    I agree, just surprise me how popular they are.


  5. Peter (bobmarleypeople) Says:

    It’s interesting that channels are moving frequency. Perhaps they’re being persuaded to move by the big channels to allow the new HD channels? Or am I thinking too much into this?


  6. admin Says:


    Nope, nothing to do with that, JML was never on the relevant beam (2D) to allow space.

    which is very annoying!! I think I’ve deleted all the shopping channels though, so is that why it’s reported no changes? It’s detected that something has changed and needs ro rescan but has not in fact needed to alter anything in my channel list.

    Does anyone else have an issue with rescans preventing any scheduled recording until you go in and accept them ? I seem to be 2 episodes of the wire short after my hols and recall a rescan to accept when I first got home ?

    Very helpful – at least we know now what is happening.
