    Hi, after seeing posts about manual recording on Sky + I am much closer to getting one. However there is one thing I need to know.

    If you have a powercut does Sky + remember the EPG and timer settings you have made?

    I seem to get a lot of short power outages. One of my VCRs remembers, the other doesnt and it really bugs me.

    As it has a hard disk I assume it will pick up where it left off.

    Also
    Does the Optical output sound better than normal stereo outputs on non DD channels?
    Where can I get a Free To Air card for my old Panasonic digibox?

    Thanks Rog

    Yes the Planner entries survive a power failure.
    If there is a power cut during a recording when the power returns the recording will continue assuming the planner start/stop time is still valid.

    I would probably say yes the optical output does sound better for stereo material but it's a subjective opinion at best. I still prefer the phonos for outputting a Dolby Prologic soundtrack to my amp.
