    Just watching Channel 4 and MAGIC AT WAR, very interesting BUT, In the corner it says NEW GAME, so I press BACK UP on the Sky remote, to get rid, and it does for about 2 mins, and then its back again!

    I am not surfing channels or anything like that which makes it reappear, it just does!

    Anyone else noticed this, and is this the state of things to come??

    I will ring Channel 4 tomorrow and ask!

    Time for a drink and a nap now!

    Yes I was watching it for a short while and switched the red dot of and it came back time after time about 20 seconds or so. The employ this system on one QVC.
    I’m dreading the switch of off analogue.

    i detest those popup things!

    im not ****in interested in whats there,if i want info ill bloody press the teletext button.thats what its for.

    you even get popups on adverts now as well!!

    there should be an option to turn them off in your sky setup menu.

    no-one likes them and no-ones interested.

    not sure if this works for CH4, but does for Skyone etc.

    this soultion is menioned elsewhere i think, but anyway.....
    press the red button, then quickly press the backup button. The red dot should not appear again unless you change channels.
