Performing a Sky digibox system software update in Denia

Performing a Sky digibox system software update in Spain

In most cases you will not have to do a manual Sky digibox system software update, as the Sky boxes will automaticlly update the software when ever new software becomes avaialble from Sky.

You may have to perform a manual Sky digibox system software update if your Sky digibox has not been powered on or getting a signal from the satellite for about 6 months.

Ideally the best time of the day to do this is first thing in the morning - when signals strengths are the best, and you are able to receive the 11778 main default transponder frequency, as this is the frequency where the software updates are located.

1) Put the box into Standby mode. (red light mode)
2) Disconnect the power to the receiver
3) Locate the button on the front of the Receiver, named "Back Up". ( ON THE RECEIVER NOT ON THE REMOTE!)
4) Press and hold down the "Back Up" button.
5) WHILE HOLDING IT DOWN, reconnect the power to the receiver (do not release the back-up button yet).
6) About 20 seconds after reconnecting power, all four coloured lights will illuminate on the front of the receiver. If the TV is switched to Sky a message will also appear on screen.. "Updating System Software".
7) Only after the four lights illuminate and the message appears should you release the back-up button.
8) After about 10 minutes the receiver will return to "standby" (i.e.. red LED only).
9) Leave the receiver in standby for 1 minute as it carries out a self check.
10) Switch receiver out of standby (green LED illuminates).
11) The receiver will take a few minutes "Searching For Listings".
You may have to assists the receiver in booting up by using the "Changing Default Transponder" method

12) Your digibox should now be operating on the latest available version of software.

Do not unplug your Skybox from the mains supply or satellite dish during the software upgrade or permanent damage could be done and your box rendered unusable

Do not attempt a firmware upgrade if your Sky Digibox already has the latest firmware version - it will make no difference!

Local TV in Denia

You can receive around 30 to 40 digital TV channels via a TV aerial in Denia. These range from the national TV channels like TVE1 and La Sexta, to the local chanenls like CanalNou.

And there is another more local TV channel available in Denia.

Marina Alta TV, also known as Safor 7 TV, is a local TV channel for the Denia and Gandia area.
And you may be able to receive Gandia TV, another local TV channel.

Both of these are made for the Denia and Safor areas of Valencia. They have local news reports, documentaries about local issues, and carry sport from the local football and basketball teams.

What size satellite dish do I need for Sky TV in Denia?

What size satellite dish do I need for Sky TV in Denia?

Well at the end of the day the best satellite dish size you need depends on what UK TV channels you actually want to receive.

In Denia, much of the Sky TV channels can be received on an 80cm satellite dish!

Yes an 80 cm satellite dish.

For example, an 80cm satellite dish can receive Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 2 and Sky Sport 3 in Denia all day 24/7.
Sky Sports 4 and Sky Sports News will need a bigger dish, either a 1.8m Portuguese satellite dish (sometimes incorrectly refered as a 1.9m satellite dish!), or ideally a 2.4m Portuguese satellite dish.

With the correct size satellite dish (1.8m or 2.4m Portuguese satellite dish), and the correct Sky digibox, ALL of the Sky Movie channels are available 24/7 in Denia.

In some areas a 1.8m Portuguese satellite dish will be enough for reception of the BBC1 and BBC2 and BBC HD channels in Denia. Ideally a 2.4mm Portuguese satellite dish is prefered, should budget and space be available.

Ideally a SkyHD+ satellite digibox is required. The Sky HD boxes have a better and more sensitive tuner inside, and perform better that the "legendary" PAce 2600, renounded to be the best Sky digibox for Spain. Many UK TV satellite channels can be received with No Sky subscription.

Best Default Transponder Frequency Settings for a Sky box in Denia

When a Sky receiver / digibox / box is turned on the first time the first thing the box tries to do is, amongst other things, to download approximately 6 hours of EPG information from a specific default frequency (or Transponder) from the satellite. The Sky digibox must have this information to start to work and allow you to watch Sky TV..

Unfortunately, the default frequency (transponder) that the decoder is initially set to look for (11778) is one of the weaker signals in Spain and the Costa Blanca, especially during the afternoons, even on a 2.4m dish! So should you experience one of Spain's frequent power cuts during this period, your Sky digibox may be unable to find this frequency, fail to boot up, and display the on screen message "No Satellite Signal Being Received".

Therefore, to assist the digibox to receive the bare minimum information it requires boot up the default frequency must be changed to another frequency to enable the initial information download.
