    Hello,
    I wonder if someone can help with a query? I am about to get a Sky digtal set top box. I have heard a rumour about there being no timer on them. This doesn't sound correct. Any thoughts on the merits of each stb, any better than others.

    Thanks for any info.

    They do have a timer, its called Personal Planner, simply select the programs you want from the on screen TV-Guide, and set them to Auto View, simple, and its worked perfectly every time I've used it.

    As for merits of different STB's all I can tell you from my experience is not to get a Panasonic box, they may be quick thru the menus, but mine needed rebooting every day, and the picture was not as good as the very old Pace box I got to replace my Panasonic box when it got fried by a power surge!!!!!!

    I've got a Panasonic STB and it's been fine. No doubt there will be isolated problems with all makes.

    I've had a Pannasonic box for two years now with virtually flawless performance! :)
