I'm hoping someone out there can help me with a problem with my SKY viewing card. I've finally managed to get my dish set up to get perfect reception here in Stockholm for all terrestrial and SKY channels using a UK friends digibox and viewing card.

However, the problem is that when I put my SKY viewing card in his box I can't get a signal for ITV but can I get all other terrestrial channels perfectly. I know the reception is fine as I put his card back in and ITV reappears. Is ITV specific to my card - I thought all FTA channels work on any card? Why would this happen and is there a way of solving this?

Any help gratefully received as my pal wants his box back and I want to get ITV!

ITV does not need a card, it should appear with no card in the box, what message is being shown on the screen?

Hi Rolf,

The message simply says that a "Satellite signal is not being received". But I know this isn't the case....I've tried it in a Pace 430N and a Panasonic 31

The only thing I can think of, is that you can perhaps receive the Astra 2D vertical transponders and not the horizontal, or vice versa. It will depend on where the card was ordered from, as to which ITV version it will set the box to.

Simple test, take the card out of the box, then go to add channels and add a vertical ITV transponder and a horizontal one from here, then test to see if you can see the channels.

Thanks Rolf, you solved all my problems. You were right, I tried the H transponders and picked up a host of ITV regions which I've now added. The two ITV regions I have pre programmed based on my post code are on the V transponders - just my luck!

Oh well, not quite as convenient, but at least you can get ITV. :)
