Hey team,

I'm running a third party freeview box (i.e. not one of the sanctioned ones from Dick Smith etc...).  On my freeview channel 8 it's Stratos.  I'm wondering how I "tune in" the TV3+1 .  I realise it's totally useless, but I'd still like to have it available.

Did everyone else's just show up on 30 March?

I did it the easy way - did an automatic scan. I still can't get the radio stations though.

Thanks dude, that makes total sense.  I thought my "Satellite Scan" was kind of like a scan for satellites type thing.  Turns out it gave me the new channels.  Ta :)

I'll have to try the scan, too.  TV3+1 appeared on my EPG, but Channel 8 is nowhere to be found.

All other new channels came through on their own.

I would have said this if i didn't have the channel tuned in either. I never thought i'd say this but I can't understand how my life continued without having a channel like this for all these years.

I have a similar problem:
When I look on 8 I have CUE :(

So I done a scan and it said it found the new channel "TV3 PLUS1" but when I go ether channel 8 or 122, nether of them have TV3 PLUS1 :(

I have this satellite receiver.
DishTV S6800+ FTA Satellite Receiver

Below I show that apparently the channel is there, but it's when I try to go to it, I even went thou all ~122 channels and non of them had TV3 PLUS1 :(

Any ideas?
