For the first time in ages Ive had time to have a play with my Sky Italia box, and Ive found an interesting feature hidden deep in the menus. You can add channels and access them direct through the epg in the 96xx range!

Here you can see Ive added Caspionet first and its on 9600

Rather more flexible than the horrible "Other Channels" on a sky uk box isnt it?

That's a good idea, perhaps BSkyB will follow suit eventually, although there is not quite the same need for it on Astra 28.2, as there are a relatively small amount of channels not on the Sky EPG.

Services, 7, 3, SELECT to load the other channels - it loads them all in alphabetical order which you can then find in Services 7, 2.

Beware - Each time you run the Services, 7, 3 it appears to delete your existing 96xx channels!

Connect the scart to an old video player and output the rf from the video to your distribution amp.

Or buy an rf modulator from somewhere like Maplins.

Wouldn't it be funny if you did a software update on 28e on the box and it downloaded the BskyB software and vice versa? :D

I know, it's very unlikely, but it'd be funny to see... :D
Doesn't work when you try and force an Italia update on a UK box unfortunately :(

Ive finally got around to changing the wiring in the living room so I can have my Sky Italia box wired up more regularly. Ive updated the software on the box and all the second satellite option in the in the 2 lnb via disecq setting has changed - it was just "hardwired" for Astra 1 before, but now its a choice between Astra 1 & Eurobird 9
