I have Grundig GDS300 (2.41) with EPG 3.1.a.5 and Op Sys 1/2S4Bq and no card (neither Sky nor FTV) but my EPG starts at 181 and ignores BBC1/2 at 101/2. :rolleyes:
I can tune manually to 10.7732H 22Mbd FEC5/6 and get BBC1/2 as "other channels" but not on the EPG.

Is it just that I am impatient and will update in due course like the "old" FTV cards? 'O'-red

Where's the latest news on ITV, CH4, CH5 going FTA?

Regards
Phil

Has your Grundig ever had a card in it?

I have read elsewhere that a new box needs to have a working card inserted before it will pick up 101/102. These channels then stay there when the card is removed.

ITV and C4 are still silent on the subject of going FTA. I believe I have read that ITV still 2 years to go in its contract for encryption. C4 I don't know about but five has just signed a new 5 year agreement for encryption with $ly so they definitely won't be FTA.

Paul,

I don't know if it's had a card in because I got it from a boot sale. However it looks a bit "high mileage".

Even then, I've done a software download twice so whatever it knew in it's previous life will be forgotten.

Perhaps I will try the card from our fully fledged sky box and basic package to revive its memory.

Regarding ITV, C4 and C5 it's a pity they're not available now. I really got the box for my in-laws who live in a bad C5 area but we will have to wait .....
