    Sky listings problem

    I am only getting listings of TV programms for about 6 hours ahead on only one day.

    In the UK listings appeared for 7 days ahead.

    Everything else works fine on the Sky Box and i have all channells.

    Any ideas why this is happening?

    it means that you are not picking up the frequency that the Sky Guide uses for its information.
    if you were picking up this frequency, then the epg would load up 7 days, and you get the EPG backgound music.

    this frequency is 11778 - ie the default tansponder, whose reception around Spain varies greatly - in my area i MAY loose it at around 3 - 6pmish...

    but even if you change the default transponder to any other frequency this will not help you - as everytime you press Sky Guide, Box Office, Interactive or Services on the remote, the box always looks at it can try to play the backgound music.
