    Does the Sky+ box let you record the radio channels?
    This is likely a silly question but i havent been able to find much info!

    thanks :)

    Yes.
    However you can not select individual programs via the usual EPG system, you have to use the manual record option, infact if you have a radio channel on and press "R" it brings up the manual recording screen.

    Just to clarify as I don't have Sky+, the manual record option lets you set a channel, start time, end time and quality to record?

    The manual timer is basically the same as one you would find on a VCR.
    There is no quality setting, SKY+ records the original bitstream so you get what is broadcast.

    Excellent. Another addition to the 'pros' column for Sky+. I'll convince the missus eventually!
