ITVHD on SkyHD how to guide (New EPG/Skin ONLY)

I was just looking for a USB DVD-S2 device for my laptop so I can watch and record ITVHD when I came across this site which tells you step by step how to program Sky to get it. Nothing on there at the mo though (limited shows). Remember you can only do this with a SkyHD box.

im sure its been on few people have been watching football on it and other shows

Keep checking throughout the day as they have been testing alot lately, they have been showing upscaled programs like C4 do

Great link, title should be changed to ITV HD for new SkyEPG only though.

I'm not sure if it's worth trying a forced download (check web on how to) to see if it updates to the new EPG.

You cannot force the new epg update, they roll it out to certain brands of box, mine, which is a samsung has not been done yet.

If you've got a samsung you will have to wait as there is a problem with the new epg going on the box

Yep as above, according to Sky Installers it is done per brand, Thomson and Pace are done, Samsung not yet, don't know about Amstrad.

Yes your right not missing much but I can confirm it works as I have The Scorpion King on now and hopefully they will add more content soon and it's saved me £95 for another which I've spent on a Sony Blu-ray player :thumbsup:

We have recieved a new sky card but don't have a new EPG or new 'skin' . nothing is different since we got this new card, is this normal, is there something I have to do?

Rep for useful helpers. :thumbsup:

BBC does not run a simulcast (simultanous broadcast) like the american networks yet.
They have BBC HD which will on occasion run HD programmes in line with BBC1 most of the time they won't

ITV HD is only "activated" it seems when one of it's programmes on ITV is in HD, so it's it is simulcast, but only when there is HD Content

CH4HD seems the most impressive with a good section of it's stuff in simulcast HD

CH5 hasn't bothered yet

Sky1HD is on par with CH4HD if not better with a vast array of Hidef content, bear in mind most HD channels via Sky's system are subscription like Sky1HD and it's other channels.

If you have a working dish, dual lnb feed into your living room, get a £80 SkyHD box, working viewing card, voila you get all the HD Free to View channels including ITVHD if you have the latest EPG.

Or get youself a dreambox or az box hd

Loads of hd channels then ;-)

I wonder if they are upgrading more of their content to HD in time for Christmas then.

Dunno but something is going on, ive watched Emmerdale, Diskinsons real deal and the news last week on the HD channel
