Hey guys,

 

 

 

I was wondering if I could use my MyskyHDI box, to receive  non Sky FTA channels on the D1. Namely the Channel 9 feed on the D1.

 

In theory, with the Mysky HDI box being DVB-S2 compatible, it should work but in practicality, sky militantly lock down their hardware, so if it's possible it's only possible with a tweak, or at the most a firmware hack.

 

Anyone know if this is possible.

If firmware is available that allows this, please let me know, I won't hesitate despite it being Sky's hardware, as I could always revert back to Sky branding later.

 

Thanks

Change it to anything you wish, don't expect the box to actually work though.
