Thanks JB38. If I can get the sky frequency I should be able to tune the Freesat box in..assuming it's not going to be s subscription chan. Hopefully sky 117 will not be local ( to the south) and gives the northern programme I'm after....fingers crossed.

David Garside: I noticed that guide list number 117 is listed for a number of different locations indicating that it will be region / post code dedicated, however so long as its not going to be in the category of being one of Sky's package channels whereby encrypted, the data concerning the transponder / frequency etc used will be listed on one of the Satellite info sites, likewise when it is, I will give you an update on this.

jb38: I'm not sure quite why, but both London LIve and STV Glasgow on satellite ARE encrypted.

It's like they don't actually want the viewers...

Briantist : Many thanks for this info, as I wasn't aware of this fact. Although I suppose that by Sky having knowledge that Freesat was out of the equation as far as anyone being able to view this channel outside of the Freeview coverage area, that they in effect held the trump card, likewise took measures to safeguard it by encrypting the channel thereby foiling anyone attempting to bypass it by using the "add channels" facility, such as suggested by David G.

Thank you. It's tuned in now, not sure about the programmes yet, seem to be non Northeast related some of them. Possibly test transmissions until it starts in December.....

David Garside: Re: "Made in Tyne and Wear". Although you have maybe found this out for yourself by now, but if you have succeeded in viewing this programme then its assumed that you are doing so using a Sky box with a standard non-sub viewing card inserted into the slot? Sky having encrypted the programme whereby it cannot be viewed on anything other than a Sky box complete with viewing card, a "please insert viewing card" message appearing should the card be removed whilst viewing the programme.

Of course, this is effectively a way of foiling any Freesat viewer with thoughts of being able to view "Made in Tyne & Wear" by tuning their box in using the non-Freesat mode, as although the transponder used by the programme can be tuned in on 12.545Ghz - (H) - SR22 - FEC5/6 (ackgt - bob thompson) and with the programme service ID of 50430 being selected (and stored) from the list of "named" programmes captured by the scan, however any attempt to view it results in a "channel scrambled or not available" warning.

By the way, a family member informed me that T&W has been showing a variety of programmes, including one yesterday evening called "Northern Cuisine", with the logo of Tyne & Wear being seen in the top L/H side of the screen.

Hello.
Yes I am viewing on my sky box with my sky card inserted....I don't use any other non standard type of card.
As soon as it tuned it appeared without problems.
I did try on my Freesat box, but as expected it didn't show that any channels had been found.
I'm keeping an eye on the programme content and getting an idea of which programmes to watch.

David Garside: Thanks for the update, although when you carried out the tuning procedure on your Freesat box, it should be appreciated that the T&W channel (ID:50430) will "not" be stored in the list unless you selected to scan "all" channels and not just Freesat or FTA, selecting "all" channels resulting in encrypted as well as free to air channels being scanned, whereas a Freesat or FTA scan completely excludes any channels detected by the box as being encrypted, such as Tyne & Wear.

Although that said is a bit academic anyway, as when 50430 does appear on the list, selecting it results in a "scrambled channel" message been seen because of it being encrypted.
