I know that one user requested feature of Sky+ is a way to set it to record programs when you're not at home. Perhaps that USB port on the Sky+ 160 box was meant for it. I was disappointed that it wasn't an ethernet port. Since Sky have not managed to add this feature, has anyone produced a workaround? Obviously, this would be a system that allowed the user to access the EPG over the internet (assuming there is a downloadable source for it like the TiVo uses) and choose a program to record. The application would then need to transmit the correct infra-red codes to the Sky+ box to set it. Does this exist? It's obviously far from ideal, but it would be better than nothing at this point. A cleverer alternative might be a way to use a video capture card to scan the EPG directly from the Sky box and display it to the end user. It could also give proper access to add/delete from the Sky+ Program Planner. Again it would be using infra-red codes to drive the Sky+ box. If the coaxial output 2 was used then the infra-red codes could be sent through the cable (as used by the TV-Link). Again, is this all a pipedream or is there something in existance that's doing some of this?
