How to get ITV HD on Sky HD

38
Found 28th Apr 2009
Some will already know how but this is for those that don't know you can get ITV HD on Sky HD.
You need to have the new EPG installed.

Go to Options/Add channels.
The settings are you need are:
Frequency(Ghz) 11.427 (this has to be entered manually with the number buttons)
Polarisation H
Symbol Rate 27.5
FEC 2/3

Press yellow button to find channels.
ITV3 is shown as '10510'.
Select and press yellow again to store.
10510 will then be stored in the 'other channels' section.
Hope this helps someone, I only found out today and am now watching the chelsea game in HD.

I got the same but also 4 freesat channels and 10510. Maybe it is area specific, I'm not sure tbh.
Have you got the latest EPG and did you change polarisation tho 'H'?
If so I'm sorry but my kowledge ends there.

Do you need to have a HDMI cable connected? Or can you get it down normal scart.

They have updated the electronic programme guide (EPG) for Sky HD boxes. Go to settings/system details the EPG Software version is there. It should be Sky+8.3.2.

There is a good page here which has al the info on the new EPG. Further down the page there is a link telling you how to 'force update' your HD box to the latest version.

And how to upgrade EPG:

do you have to go into other channels every time to select that channel to watch is there not a way of saving it into the hd selection menu or something

Nice find !!!

Don't think so. I think you have to go to 'other channels' to watch it.

We only got sky installed 3 months ago aswell. Will it have anything to do with my box not being connected to a telephone line? (I have no room with phone+modem plugged in)

Samsung are due the upgrade in the next few weeks, its downloaded to the box via the dish, they are doing it brand by brand, Thomson got it first then Pace, Sammy in a few weeks
