With Sky+ is it possible to record 2 programmes whilst watching 1 previously recorded one?
I believe its a documented feature in the manual at least it is in the supplement I received with my Sky magazine shortly after they introduced dual recording. By the way mostly they are not engineers (college course trained) merely installers (with a week or two's training ) or "ladder monkies" as some qualified engineers call themJeff186 said:I was told that this werent poss by the engineer that installed my sky plus and have never tried it coz i didnt want to mess up my recordings too still feel a bit un-easy about trying it
I assume you can transfer from the Topfield to a 4Gb USB memory stick also? Or a USB external drive?Jules said:Topfield 5800.
Excellent machine bar the S-Video socket which isn't a true S-Video socket as per another thread I started.
However, functionally the Topfield is very nearly as good as Sky+ with one major advantage.... the recordings can be transferred to a PC down a USB cable.
This means you can make 'perfect' DVD recordings of the broadcast picture.
Most programmes take up about 1.5Gb per hour, which means you get nearly 3 hours of broadcast quality programmes on to 1 DVD-R.
That is so much better than Sky+ to a DVD-R machine... and quicker too!
And its free!
