Default Transponder Frequency Changes - 12129 may no longer work

Default Transponder Frequency Changes - no signal messages for Javea / Xabia

If you use 12129 as the Default Transponder Frequency setting to help your Sky digibox boot up, then you may be finding this no longer works.

On the 31st May 2012, this frequency was no longer carrying any channels, with S4C moving from that frequency.

This means that this frequency is no longer able to help in booting a Sky box up.

So, if, for example after a power cut, you needed to use 12129 as the default transponder frequency on your Sky digibox in Spain then you will now need to use the new default transponder frequency setting.
