Excellent!

I did have some issues with it not displaying channels - just a message to ring sly or an upgrade and get robbed,

But an excellent list for reference.

Great that I can still get C4 on my Pace2600. I thought I´d lost it for good as Astra2D horizontals are too weak on my undersized 1m50 dish in NW Spain. I´ll add it to the extra channels menu tonight. Many thanks Analoguesat!

Not only is the C4 channel still blank, but its lost its epg info - which is what I was working on last night. So not quite sure what going on there now.

Ive also received info that the E4 / More4 Irish versions arent ftv - can some folks confirm please? I'll change the status on the top post in the meantime.

Yes, Irish E4 and More4 are subscription, but any UK subscription works for them.

All I know is - E4 Ireland works on my first box with my basic UK subscription but not with my second box with a UK FTV card - crazy.

Some of the channels on 12480V have now been renamed to Channel 4, Channel 4+1 and E4+1 and my Irish card is now mapping to this frequency. Excellent stuff!

Looks to me like More4 Ireland and E4 Ireland have left 11565V - I can only get these on 12480 now - still there though, thank you Channel 4, yes, I love your output and I will buy all the things in your adverts in return for you not going 100% to 2D :)
