Hi,

I have a Technisat HDFS satellite receiver and I am having a bit of a problem with it. Whenever I use the guide and select one of the ITV +1 channels I am always redirected to BBC1. It used also to happen with S4C Digidol but it seem to have corrected itself in that I can now receive S4C Digidol but none of the ITV +1

Is anyone else having this problem and is it to do with Technisat or Freesat?

Chris: I would do a "first time installation" (or "factory reset" or "shipping condition") reset to your device.

MAURICE: Not all areas can get the channels like Dave, CITV and Challenge. Most can though, but if you give us your post code we can make a suggestion as to whether you can or not.
