Hi

I sent my old pace ds430n with a freesat fta card to a friend in london to use. The problem is he receives bbc 1 midlands instead of bbc 1 london. How can he change it to bbc1 london?

Thanks

If he still wants to be able to receive Channel 4 and Five then he will need to get hold of a Freesat card, or expired $ly subscription card, from the London area. As a workaround he will find all of the regional variations of the BBC up in the 970 and 980 channel numbers.

If he pulls the card out of the box it will (eventually) revert to its default state which is BBC1 London and ITV1 London but won't get Channel 4 or Five any more as they are encrypted.

thanks. I did send him my freesat card as well but he can use the channel numbers as suggested below.
