I keep seeing references to ITV HD but cant find the channel on my sky HD box or on the tv programme listing

I have tried to add it in case it is a new channel but cant find it. Sky HD installed in December. Telly is a sony 40w400 and have a Sony Davis 10 attached

any help appreciated

Has your EPG been upgraded to the new HD EPG? There is only one model of Thompson HD Box (4E300E) that has been upgraded so far. See info here: www.digitalspy.co.uk/digitaltv/a149189/in-pictures-new-sky-hd-guide.html

With the new EPG that has just been rolled out to some Thomson box owners, you can manually add it as a channel. It isn't regional and is locked to Granada no sky hd but it can be done.

I have this model Sky Hd box and mine has not been updated to a new EPG


Same here. I have the Thomson 4E300E and still have the old EPG (my Sky HD was installed on 13 March). So it seems that you do not automatically get the new EPG just because you have this particular digibox. I don't really care less about the EPG itself but would like access to ITV HD (for the football). C'mon Sky we're all paying you the same subscription price so should all have the same service!

It says the following:

<quote>

ITV HD is a red-button service.

<quote>

Just out of interest, can anyone explain how the "red button" works? Does it tell the tuner to change to another channel? And if so, why can't you just tune to the HD channel directly? A "red button" seems a rather round about way of doing a simple thing...

But you have already paid for your sky in order that you can watch it, if you cancelled sky would you still be able to watch ITV HD ?

to add ITV in HD to the programme guide, all a customer is required to do is access the Add Channels menu and enter the following settings:

11.427H, 2/3, 27500, channel 10510

not tried yet but will later today and post

yes that seems to be true anyway to force your sky box for the update - does the update come via dish or does your sky box need to be connected to phone line?

To do a system update you will need the box connected to a phone line

No phone line req my EPG came on Thursday morning not a phone line in sight. ITV HD channel stored and working fine there is not a lot on but it will do for the footy. It seems like the first subscribers to HD are getting their EPGs first and so we should
