    Hi,

    This is a really odd problem - Sky One And Sky Mix are showing Beverly Hills 90210. I have tried recording from both channels using both the program guide and also manual recording. It always fails, with no given reason.

    All other programs record just fine.

    Is this just me or has anyone else had this problem ? Is it possible that Sky somehow block specific programs from being recorded and if so, why bllock BH90210 ?

    Cheers,

    John

    De-activate the "anti-crap" button in System set-up

    Tape !

    As it happens I could, but I was toying with the idea of chucking the VCR in the skip only the other day, as it hasn't been used for well over a year now (since the day I got Sky+ in fact).

    It is possible to prevent a program from being selected from recording via the planner but it would just refuse to do anything and when this has happended it's been down to corrupt/wrong EPG data or the program has not been confirmed in the manner of an ongoing vote for the episode sort of thing.

    That doesn't seem to be the case here and why a manual recording doesn't work is a mystery.

    It's probably worth a call to SKY since if there was a transponder/lnb/tuner issue then you would be losing everything off of SKY or MIX.

    I've set my SKY+ to record tomorrows 90210 just as an experiment and I'll report the results.
