    Just seen this on Sky digi online.......

    02/12/03 Dual recording "Days away" for Sky+ users
    Sky's technical department have informed us this afternoon that Sky+ users should start getting their long awaited software upgrades from Thursday 4th December. This will enable the dual recording facility as well as some other enhancements. It may take a day or two for all of the software to download to your box, but if you get up in the morning and your box has reset to EPG 998 then you should have the software on board.

    Oh I hope this is so. It's from Sky themselves so it must be true!

    Anyone got any idea what the other 'enhancements' might be?

    First time I have heard of this, I was only thinking the other day that it was a shame you cant record 2 programmes at the same time. Will this download automatically in the background??

    Is there anything else new in the horizon coming up for Sky+?

    I'd just be happy if they stopped my box from freezing and crashing.
    Sky told me a load of lies about it being BBC's fault (changing the data rate etc.) and my box still isn't working properly.
    Got the engineer coming out today. I'm not hopeful!:mad: :mad: :mad:

    And if you pause live TV and press the blue button you can save your buffered Live TV to disk.
