widgetwilk is an unknown quantity at this point

Hi, new here so hope I can get some help,
Have a Freesat box, but am having trouble with channels, can get BBC1 on 101, but BBC2 if I get it on 102 it is in HD and I have to use my TV controls to change volume, so I get BBC2 on 110.

BBC4 can only get in HD, is this right???
The other channels I use are
ITV3 103
ITV4 117
ITV5 128
Channel 4 104

If I could get these all together on the Guide that would be perfect, but tnink I am hoping for to much,

So my wish is to only use the Freesat control, am I wishing to much,
Tahnks for any help.

Re: Channels

Some of the channel numbering you mention seems strange e.g. ITV3 should be on 115. And there is no such channel as ITV5.

FreeSat HD boxes automatically swap identical HD variants of channels if they are available, hence why 102 is BBC2 HD. The swapped out SD channels are still there further up the guide with a higher number.

Rather than list them I suggest you visit the TV Guide page on the FreeSat website, as it has all the channel numbers down the left of the screen. You'll find all the Stand Definition version that have been automatically moved if you scroll down.
