SKY HD HELP!

HELP?
I had my sky hd installed yesterday and the tv guide is different to what it should be. Mine looks exactly like sky+ but has HD channels. Is there an update and how do I do it? Also how do I get ITV HD on my Amstrad SKY HD Box?
rep will be added!

My TV guide was also upgraded today, that's how it's supposed to be for the HD boxes!

Hope that helps

the new tv guide is updated from the sat signal in due time .
mine took a few months to come. you need the new guide befor you can get itv hd

ITV HD on Sky
When the new EPG is rolled out to your box, you will be able to access the ITV HD channel manually.

To do this, go to the Add Channels menu and use the following settings:

11.427
H
2/3
27500

Channel 10510

The new guide has a picture in the top right, showing the channel you are watchin while looking through the guide.

If you don't have this then you are on the old guide and awaiting an update sent by Sky.

if the engineer didn't do a software update when he installed it you will still have the old guide.
turn the box off at the mains. press backup (and hold it down) then turn on at the mains and keep holding the backup button until the 4 LEDs all light up. this will force the box to d/l and install the latest software which may contain the new guide if your make box has been done (most have now)

you can't get the new epg by forcing an update, they are updating them by the make of the boxes, samsung are the latest ones to be getting it at the moment, mine was done about 4 weeks ago. As you say most have been done but not all

you only get it when sky send it to your box

I find it very slow, clunky and incredly hard to get what you want

i know that mate but when you get a new box the EPG is usually the older one as sky obviously haven't sent it an update, but if its one of the makes thats been updated then forcing the update will download the new one. if its one of the makes not yet updated then as you say there's no way to force it
