This tutorial will show you how to tune your Sky+ HD box (with the new EPG) so as to watch ITV HD



On the new Sky+HD EPG (Electronic Programme Guide) it is possible to manually tune ITV HD so as to watch any programmes that are transmitted in HD

Press services on your remote

  1. Go to add channel and put this information in
  2. 11.427
  3. H
  4. 2/3
  5. 27500

There is no programme information and you can't pause it or record the channel, but you can watch what ever is on, in HD

When you have added the above information, to watch the channel, you have to press services, then other channels and it will be listed there, under the id 10510

Tried this but it did not save the details into the 'other channels' location.

I could not manually enter the info and find the the channel. I used the 'yellow' button to scan for it and it's listed as '10510' select it and press yellow then select to add it, it's then available under other channels.

You need to press yellow button for it to find the channel after putting in above input

This will work on the new EPG, but you of course have to tick the 10510 channel for it to store.

Does anyone know how to add DVB-S2 channels on the Sky box so you can see the new HD channels before they are added to the EPG? Thanks

Follow the steps from the top. after scanning system come back with numerous channels names go to 10510, highlight the channel and press select once highlighted press again to store it. All manaully stored channels go to other channels which is next to add channels tab. system will ask you to key in you 4 key pin to watch manaully add channels.
10510 (free satellite HD name) = ITV1 HD.

hope that helps!
