Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong !! I'm not very keen on the whole sky EGP thingy. My main gripe is that everything is "event driven" - ie you set it to change channels by selecting a program. There is no way to tell it to change to UK Gold at 9PM. Where this fails is that if I want to watch a prog which starts at 8:50pm on UK Gold and I'm watching something on another channel which ends at 9pm - I usually choose to miss the first 10 minutes of the UK Gold program so I see all the other program. This is impossible to do unattended on any Sky digibox I have seen and so am assuming it is the same on Sky+. I need to be able to tell the box to turn over to another channel at a particular time and in my opinion this will not be possible while sky keep this system.
