Use At Your Own Risk

The code required to add channels manually to Alba Group Freesat boxes, which do not show in the Freesat EPG, has been leaked

To add channels manually, just go into the ‘Services‘ menu and press ‘2846‘. You will then need to obtain the frequency information for the FTA channel you wish to add, Flysat is a good place to find them.
However, this is an unofficial route into the manual tune menu, with the official service due to be available soon. It would seem that Alba are aware of this code leak,

Well done for finding the hidden menu, but please note this will not work correctly, I am currently testing the finished manual scan option that will be available end of this month,

After the update you will need to select from the settings menu “show non freesat channels” before the channels stored will be shown in the channel list (not epg).

Please do not expect the hidden menu to work correctly.

Its nice to see grundig replying to whoever the original poster was, with a little pat on the back and some extra info for them, most companies just hit the delete email button

Freesat Tv Secret Menu.

FREESAT TV SECRET MENU in the Bush, Goodmans and Grundig freesat digital boxes are not ready to be played about with as yet.
Because of irresponsible forums and some box feedback about freezing boxes while in this menu we have to say; "Please only go into this menu at your own risk! The chance of doing irreparable damage to your box at this time is high. When the time is right the software for these boxes will be released although at this time we believe it should not be tampered with as it is the engineers guide.
For those who feel they need to dig into the box you need to go into the menu, from there four numbers 28any any and then 2846 and the menu will be as the graphic.
We stress!!! as these boxes have still to be complete there is no reason to go in to this menu! Yet!
