    I have a freesat v7 max box and just wondering how to update the channels as sky sports 1 still shows as sky sports the open and would like to get a new sky channel called moviemix

    has anyone got the steps on how to update my box/channels please without losing my favs I have stored?

    Thank you in advance

    Just do a single sat scan for 28A [No15 in sat list] then edit as you want.

    Hi ianhanly if your sky sports the open is still working why not just rename it sky sports 1

    Oh right how do I rename the channel as did not know that could be done, I will do the single sat scan first as suggested by the reaper and then will do the rename if need be

    Thank you for the reply

    i did a single sat scan for 28A and still don't see the new moviemix channel and sky sports 1 is still called sky sports the open

    the settings on the scan is below

    single satellite search
    1/1 eutelsat 28A
    Yes for FTA only
    no for network search
    full scan for scan mode

    I have done the scan again and now is renamed is sky sports 1 but can't find moviemix channel so guessing it is not available or something

    Your scan is incorrect---should read---- No for fta only Blind scan for scan mode. Sports mix is there in scan. Reaper.

    I can't see any channel called moviemix. Probably thinking of/confusing with the new Sky Sports Mix maybe?
