Sky Box for Sky Freesat Region For Itv1?

HI every1,

I have set up my skybox and satellite dish today to receive sky freesat. Only problem is I have bought a 2nd hand box for upstairs and downstairs. My sky box for upstairs works and displays as it should. The box downstairs shows all the channels but ITV still shows for the wrong region for where I live and will not work.

Does anybody know how I can find Itv for my region and replace the existing Itv on the sky box?

If theres not a way to do this can I perform a manual reset to start the box from fresh.

Thanks for your help in advance

BBC 1 nations are always available on these channels:
971 BBC 1 Scotland
972 BBC 1 Wales
973 BBC 1 Northern Ireland
All other BBC 1 regions are on 974 to 988.

BBC 2 nations are:
989 BBC 2 England
990 BBC 2 Scotland
991 BBC 2 Wales
992 BBC 2 Northern Ireland

Also useful is:
993 ITV1 London

Additionally you can manually add any missing free-to-air channels via the "Other Channels" menu if you know the correct frequency, polarity, symbol rate and fec ratio. For example these values will access all ITV regions:
10758 V 22. 5/6
10832 H 22.0 5/6
10891 H 22.0 5/6
10906 V 22.0 5/6
12402 V 27.5 2/3
12427 H 27.5 2/3
To use these numbers press Sevices, select System Setup, select Add Channels, pick one row from above and set the four values, select 'Find Channels'. Wait then highlight a channel and press yellow then press select. Use Services->Other Channels to view the channel you just added.

As above, or buy a FreesatfromSky card, that will give you the correct channels in the correct order as well as a few extra channels, Channel 5 .. Sky 3.

Downside it costs £20.

Thats what I have!! I've got a white card that I bought with the sky box!! Only probs is Itv and BBC 1 are not my local regions and they are the region for the sellers area. Can I change these channels so I get my local Itv1 Westcountry sw at channel 103?

Thanks for the lsit. I have found my local BBC1 channel just under 999 and scrolling down. If I do the manual search and find my local ITV channel, can I place that into position 103 to remove the exisitng channel there?

As I see it your only option is to by a new card. Cards always have their regions correctly for the postal address that the card is shipped to.

Details of how to buy the card are listed here http://www.freesatfromsky.co.uk/faqs-freesat.aspx#q3 (the answer to the question "I already have Sky digital satellite equipment - what else do I need?"

No, they are locked to the sellers Post Code, strictly speaking nobody is allowed to sell a Sky Card because only Sky actually own the card.

Do not contact Sky, or they may switch the card off.

No because there is no way of moving channels on a Sky Receiver.
