Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

This is the default view when the box finishes powering up:



Iím not aware if you can change it though I admit Iíve never tried. You donít need to navigate the TV guide to change channels from this view. If you know the three digit channel number you can just enter it and it will go to that channel in full screen.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

That's good to know.

In answer to your question, when switching it on, there isn't a way to make it go to the picture of the last channel it was on.

However, i'm told that pressing 'Exit' will get rid of the overlay and that it will eventually auto time out too.

I discovered the exit button and it is fine, I have looked up the manual on the Internet for the Humax and it is very helpful,
Thanks Richard,

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

'Rocks and Co’ has now been relabelled as ‘Juwelo’ on Freesat.

I think its safe to say the reason they now show Juwelo undubbed all day is perhaps down to Sky intervening when they had a periods of 7-9 days without broadcasting and only showing a promo loop and therefore breaking the EPG rules.

The dubbed English hours are still shown - they are advertised on the website.

What an odd state of affairs!

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

I don't believe that this was ever on Freesat (could be wrong), but anyone who tunes in via non Freesat mode may like to know that, even though it was supposed to be coming off satellite yesterday, Absolute Radio 70's is still broadcasting as normal!

Radio announcements and press articles like this did say that it was leaving DAB (which it has) and satellite on 23/5/18!?

https://radiotoday.co.uk/2018/05/abs...om-dab-and-tv/

Tuning details:

11.538 V DVB-S QPSK SR 22 FEC 5/6
