Yeah, it's odd. They aren't broadcasting from the old transponder anymore so wonder if EPG pointing to a different transponder.
It looks like they are still transmitting 2x HD streams on 11.758H so wonder if they are duplicating ITV2 & 4HD until all STB's are remapped?

I remember when C4HD moved to their own capacity, Sky kept the C4HD service going on their own TP for a few days albeit with a deleted, blank, label.

Being ITV and a prominent broadcaster, maybe they've done the same and your STB has not picked up the new mapping? I'm out of the UK at the mo but can you check if the old ITV2 & 4HD SID's on 11.758H now have blank labels (SID's 3932 and 3934)?

This is possible, but the signal strength is consistent with a UK rather than European transponder.

I can see no other versions of ITV2 HD and ITV4 HD. Are you manually tuning to the right settings?
11.053GHz/H
SR 23.0
FEC 3/4
DVB-S2
8PSK
Yep, the channels, come up, i can store them, but when go to watch via other channels get No Signal.

If you can see the channels in the list then you are picking up the signals. I think your box is confused somehow. Have you tried deleting the other channels and starting again?

You nailed it - deleted all other channels and now works as it should. Thanks! Pleased I can pick up the lower FEC (albeit with slightly lower signal), but might have less luck if they reduce FEC on lower frequency transponders.

No ITV3 &4 HD for me on that frequency. The scan finds nothing.

This needs updating for the 2G changes, but I shall leave it a couple of weeks for things to settle down

C5 HD may be moving onto the UK beams. An unidentified HD label has appeared on 10964H


Hard to believe this thread has been going for seven years now! :D

Distant expats may soon lose C5HD as a new HD label has started testing on 10964H which is on the UK spotbeam

12480V are reported as being duplicated on 12304H - if the latter is UK spotbeam thats the end of the C4/E4/More4 Irish versions & the 4Music channel for distant expats.

And will also make this thread almost redundant........

There's still Film4/More4/E4 HD available via subs cards. C5 HD (SID 7750 on TP57) is now video testing so a change over to the UK spot on this is imminent too.

12480V was mapped over to 12304H on the UK beam on 9th Feb 2016. The transmissions continue on 12480V but closedown for the widebeam version must be imminent now.

I'll leave the 12480V version on the main table until its removed.

I think Channel 5 HD on 11797H 29500 3/4 (Astra 2E Europe beam) has finally gone to the UK spot transponder, at least the parent's Sky box in Finland is showing no signal now.

The gloaters that lurk hereabouts have a huge slice of schadenfreude to enjoy this evening. Don't choke.
