Lost channels on Sky+HD box by Peter Pratten
I noticed the Sky+HD box had been reset the other day but not the Sky+ one so I suspected a download. Now I find I've lost a large number of channels starting with ITV1 and Channel 4 (not the HD versions). I've recycled the power and they are back. Has this been widespread? What was updated? -- Peter Pratten Please reply in group only

Record only once by Pete
Amstrad DRX890 Sky+ HD box (but we don't have the HD service). I set the box to record something on Series Link because I want the whole series. It gets the original showing of each episode but also gets the repeat later on in the week, which in turn causes a recording clash because the box is already recording something else at that time. How do I get it to stop doing this and only get the...

Series Link issues by Doctor D
My 3 year old Amstrad Sky+ box is always reluctant to add series link on BBC1. Most other channels are instant, but BBC1 can take 5/6 attempts of timing out before it adds it. Is this normal, can anything be done about it? Cheers.

HD Service by markjohn
The terrestrial TV has limited BW so the services to offer HD services has very little scope or rather no no option. Till when the analogue services are going to switch off to increase the bandwidth substantially??

Sky Decoder, No Card by John[_21_]
A friend has just had his TV aerial upgraded and a satellite dish installed for either Sky or FreeSat. The man who came to install the TV aerial left it so that he had even less Freeview channels than he had before! He had to call him back, and following my suggestion to my friend, my mate insisted that the aerial be put up much higher...problem resolved...now all DTT...

Cost of going to Sky+ with 2 dish feeds? by Maurice Batey[_2_]
In anticipation of the analogue switchoff here next year we are looking for alterntive solutions to the 'watch one, record another' situation. Roughly how much would we need to shell out for a change from single-feed old Sky box to Sky+ and a twin feed from the dish? Is there a monthly charge increase as well as the one-off upgrade charge? Another possibility is a twin-tuner Freeview...

SKY Channels 503 and 504 by Y Dangle
I live in Cyprus, and use a 1.5m dish to receive SKY. (This is very small for Cyprus, but does receive a large number of channels.) I have just lost BBC News ch 503 and BBC Parliament ch 504. I suppose SKY have moved them to another (weaker) transponder. This change is unlikely to have affected anyone in the UK, I don't know what size dish in Cyprus or the like will now be needed. FYI

FSFS by johnnysaint
Hi Folks I'm currently subscribed to Sky+HD but due to redundancy I can no longer justify or afford the 32 per month. Am I understanding this right? I can get a card from Sky, costing 25, that will still enable me to view non subscription channels for free, including some HD ones. As I've been a customer for 4 or 5 years is the equipment now mine and I

Audio time lag?? by keithy397
Hi, Basically, since I got the new tv I've noticed a time difference in the sound from my tv and the sound from the hi-fi via audio cables from the sky+hd box. It's only a very slight difference hardly discernable with music playing, but speech sounds like they're talking in a great hall! With my old style tv I didn't have this problem. Is this the norm or is there a fix?

Cable split Question by keithy397
Hi, I recently moved and in my previous place I had a sat dish supplying 3 feeds:- 1 x Sky+ box and 1 X basic box in my bedroom (with Multiroom Lite subscription). In my new place, dishes are not allowed but I have a box in my sitting room with 2 Sky feeds (+ ordinary TV and FM feed) which is fine for my Sky+ but no good for my other box. I bought an FBS402 Labgear 2 way splitter thinking this...

Interference from TV transmitter by Anti-Spam
Had a job recently where the house was near to a local TV transmitter. I could not get a decent BER quality reading. Tried earthing the dishe, that made no difference. Tried increasing the dish size, that made things worse. Tried resiting the dish behind a building, that helped a bit, but is still not perfect. Any sensible suggestions welcomed on how I can help this customer? TIA - Mark in Spain.

Sky HD Anytime not working by Hugh - Was Invisible
Judging by the various forums it appears to be a software issue. Anyone found a permanent fix or get any refunds from $ky. Time to lose a few channels and move to freesat methinks.
