I can get it using the add channel menus, but it does not have full functionality.

How do I get Sky Sports Mix as a standard channel, with EPG and record function.

I suspect more background detail is required to be able to answer your question

I have a standard SKY+ satellite box updated to latest software. I also have a Sky Sports subscription card.

All the main Sky Sports channels are listed in the TV Guide from channel 401-409 - SkySpMainEvHH, SkySp F'Ball HD etc. But SkySp Mix HD is missing.

The only way I can get SkySp Mix HD is to use the manual Rec option to tune it in. Then I have to use the Other Chnls option to see the channel live. But if I try to record I get an unavailable message. Nor can I set up a recording in the planner.

I assume other people have hit this problem, hoping someone has a solution.

Just to add some information.

This Sky Sports Mix channel was used over the busy weekend when the usual sports channel were all in use, and Sky moved the two of live showings of the IPL cricket (including the final) to Sky Sports Mix (and only in full on Sky Sports Mix).

So if you're a sports fan and you can't find an event you think should be on one of the main Sky Sports channels it's worth checking ch 121.

To be fair to Sky the Entertainment genre is its proper home as live and highlight sports content is very much in a minority on the channel

I think whole idea of putting where it now is now is to encourage Non-Sports customers to sample the mix and then buy a full Sports subscription = in other words, it's a "taster" to make you feel hungry for more:rolleyes:!!
