    Had a TIVO for 6 weeks and sent it back as it was so useless. Missed recordings, had no knowledge of when someoine else in house changed channel, didn't fire out ir codes correctly to change channels....nightmare product. I hope they have got the functionality of that thing sorted now (mine was about 2 months after launch).

    SkyPlus. At first we had problems with it not doing season link correctly or missing end and or beggining of programmes. Not had any issues in last 6 months though.

    Yes, it was around this time last year and I suffered a whole week of ear bashing for Sky+ failing to record Buffy and Angel. Disappeared from the planner sometime on Thursday evening.

    Sky gave me a months free viewing, while I had to spend a few hours trying to find the missed eps on the net.

    Funny, the ear bashing was quickly replaced with another type of physical assault once I had secured copies of the missed programmes. Smiles all round after that. ;)
