      Programme information

      Hi

      This might sound silly but when I press the I button on my sky remote I get the channel information but when I try it for the next programme coming on it still shows me the info for the current programme. Is there something wrong with my settings or is it normal?

      P.s On cable I could watch one channel and flick through the rest and get the programme information at the same time.

      With the normal Sky EPG you can only get the info for the programme you are watching unless you go into the tv guide.

      Hi there. Sorry to butt in, but I've just noticed you have a HD digibox, which case you would have been better off posting in the SkyHD sub section. The new EPG ( which does display info as you wanted ) has a mini screen inset in the top right hand corner of the Planner and Sky Guide. Sounds like you have the old one ( Version 5.10.kHD ). Check System Details. Which make of digibox do you have?

      Hi Thanks for the info, just noticed the hd section now.

      I have an Amstrad digibox and you right it is version 5.10.kHD apparently they will be updated soon or you can force update don't know when or how though.

      Re: Programme information

      You could try a forced update. Make sure your Signal Strength is OK, then switch off the digibox at the mains. Hold down ( and keep holding down ) the backup button on the digibox as you power on again at the mains. When the front LED's on the digibox light up, let go of the backup button and the download will commence. It usually takes around 10-15 minutes and finishes when the red standby light re-appears. Leave the box for 3 minutes for the EPG listings to load, then press Sky to view.
