    As per the title really:

    1 - BBC1
    2 - BBC2
    etc.....

    I could go on, but I think you know what I'm getting at by now!

    No, I don't think it is. All Sky digi channels are 3 numbers and are all the different categories start with a different number i.e Entertainment starts with a 1, BBC 1 being 101, BBC 2 being 102 etc etc. Movies start with a 3, sports 4 and so on.
    Personaly, I think they are already in the most logical order they could be in.

    Well, I've not got it yet (Wednesday), but that's not good. Not good at all. Looks like I'll be re-programming my remote. Again.

    Personally, I miss the 'Last Channel' button I had with cable. ie. you could flick between 2 channels with one button, for instance whilst waiting for an advert break to pass or whilst waiting for another program to start.

    Me too.

    I was stunned that Sky didn't have a "last / previous" channel button for jumping back and forth between 2 channels. It seems like such a simple thing. I've gotten used to not having it, but it took a while.
