    @dxhound2005

    did you hear any news of Freesports HD appearing on another transponder?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,299 ✭✭✭dublinman1990


    FreeSports have a new logo on their Twitter account. I'm surprised at that tbh. Their website still has their current logo.

    G Sports!

    ^ :D

    I did a full scan and can't get FreeSports HD on my combi box either.

    M60 on DS says to keep an eye out for 11642 23000 H 2/3(8PSK) as it's hasn't come on air yet.

    11642 would be a new transponder?
    It does not show up at all on my scans presently ..... with any content ....

    On the new logo, not really distancing themselves from setanta sports as much as I imagined they would.

    Yep. It is a new transponder. If you have FTA; you have to manually add in the frequency yourself.

    If your box is from Freesat; it should be added automatically on the EPG once the transponder goes live.

    OK, transponder does not exist yet, which explains its absence on my system.

    Quick check last night yielded nothing on those settings yet. However if M60 says it's going to rain, I get my wellies on. ;)

    It has been on Satellite for some time, in SD.

    Apparently on Virgin Cable it is also SD.

    Can you view the content?


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,534 ✭✭✭Gerry Wicklow


    AFAIK that's just the remaining placeholder. It's not carrying any data now although it was FTA for a while. Recent scan

    That is what I reckoned (this was posted previously in this thread I think).

    EDIT: Yes previously posted here

    https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showpost.php?p=107474283&postcount=204

    But 55278 has gone and only 55275 remains that I can see presently.

    I will rescan to see if there is anything I missed.

    EDIT2: did rescan and did not find any other.
