Alibi channel programme repeats by John[_27_]
I don't know if it's me being stupid or not but, can anyone tell me if Republic of Doyle is repeated anywhere or available through Sky Player, because I can't find it if it is. We missed last week's programme and thought 'not to worry, it's bound to be on again' but so far, no joy. One of our other favourites, Castle, is repeated three times a week as I can see, but I'm completely missing...

1TB box, 50 for existing customers. Some questions... by Vincent
I've been having the signs of capacitor failure on my Thompson HD box again (third time now, happens every year or so) and I spoke to Sky cancellations department in an attempt to get this fixed for free, instead of paying 65. They eventually said I could have it for free, or, if I prefer they said that as there is an offer starting tomorrow (26th May) for existing customers starting a specific...

Transferring recordings to DVD recorder by John[_27_]
I currently transfer anything I want to keep (music videos, rockumentaries etc) from my standard def Sky+ box to my DVD recorder by scart. The "Copy" function never seemed to work all that well so I usually do it in real time by putting the Sky box in "Play" and the DVD recorder in "Record" and that works well. You may see from an earlier posting that I'm just about to fit a 2TB hard drive...

Alternative to Sky box? by Vincent
I've been with Sky since the early 90s, but I after having Sky HD for 3 or 4 years I'm getting fed up of the Sky HD box reliability. In those 3 or 4 years, I've had 4 or 5 replacement boxes, 2 new LNBs (although they were probably fine), and a replacement PSU from Satcure. All my boxes have been or are Thompson branded, and my current one is model 902020. Now I'm having problems again, with...

BBC One HD recordings will FF but not Play? by Vincent
So three episodes in a row now, I recorded EastEnders on BBC One HD. When I play any of these episodes, it's just a blank blue screen all the way through, but the audio is fine. What makes this even more weird is if I Fast Forward or Rewind it, the picture FFs or RWs absolutely normally - thus proving that the picture data is there. But if I then hit play the screen just freezes on the last...

I am quite sure that, after this new channel has bedded in, Sky will reduce the intensity of its DOG to a less noticeable level. -- George from Cartland

ot w7 problem by Gary[_4_]
Hi My w7 has decided that in windows explorer it will not open a folder in the right window. It has done this all by itself and only for this week. Has this happened to any one else . Any idea how to cure it. It says no program associated with this file. But it is a folder not a file. If you right click and choose open all is OK. really annoying but not the end of the world. Gary

Pixels by Ken Johnston[_3_]
Hi all, I have little flashing squares of pixels appearing on the top left-hand corner of my TV. Strangely this only happens on BBC1 (via Sky) The TV has been returned for repair but it also happens on my other TV so suspect it may be a HD box/dish problem. Both TV's are Sony Bravias. Anyone seen this problem before. Many thanks

Portillo lives on by UK Traveller
My Sky HD+ box has happily recorded the Great Railway Journeys using the "series" option, but is now continuing without a hesitation down the wrong track with the bloke in the VW Camper. What's happening there I wonder? Traveller
