    Hi,

    Several members of the AVForums, including myself, have recently been contacted by the BBC's Watchdog programme, about the complete arse-up that Sky made with their recent Software Updates to the Sky and Sky+ boxes.

    Tonight - the Watchdog investigation is likely to be shown! :clap:

    So, please watch or record BBC1 between 8:30-9:00pm and let's see what happens!

    Thanks! :)

    They probably called SKY CS last week and are still on hold:)

    Of course for those whose SKY+ is messing them about use a VCR, you can never be too careful!

    Cliff paid the BBC to put his "problem" on first. Obviously PoochJD's bribe wasn't high enough ! :rotfl:

    (That's a joke, by the way, before anyone accuses me of libel) :)

    Hi People,

    Sorry that this week's show didn't include the Sky Software Issue thing, that we had all hoped for. However, I've been told it will definitely be on the show within the next 3 weeks! So, if all of you would be kind enough, to keep your fingers crossed, and be a little more patient, I'm sure "Watchdog" will air this issue once they've got the research and report completed.

    Thanks Folks! :clap:


    Pooch

    P.S. Just in case, I should mention that I do not make any kind of appearances. I've got to keep my identity a secret from you lot! :rotfl:
