    Is anyone else having problems with Sky+ just randomly forgetting series links? I've added a series link to Panorama about 4 times and just went to check on tonights episode to see what it is about, and lo-and-behold, the series link had vanished AGAIN!
    If i hadn't checked then it would have been yet another missed program by this blasted box. Its really getting on my nerves.

    Seems that Panorama is much worse than any other program -> haven't got a clue why. Time to start looking at something a little more reliable I think! :mad: :nono:

    Which box is it Army Bloke? Pace? v1 (BSkyB3000) or v2 (BSkyB3100).

    What's left on your H/D? May be worth while doing the hard reset (holding backup) as mentioned many times before in here. If you can, do a full system reset, but that loses everything on the H/D of course!

    Wouldn't you think they could have sussed Sky+ software by now? :devil:

    Went to watch the Clinton Interview last night and guess what.....ITS GONE AND LOST THE PANORAMA SERIES LINK AGAIN! AAAAARRRRRGGGHHHH!
    Why does it not like this program? is it just my box having this problem? I'm used to the box dropping a series link here and there, but its doing to consistently with Panorama. what's going on?!?!? :(

    I dont think the problem is entirly sky's fault.

    The epg only looks forward for 7.5 days and if there is a change of time or schedule that moves a program outwith that time the series link info dissapears.
    If the BBC didnt update Sky quick enough then the link goes as well.

    Finnally sometimes it pays to go through the EPG to the full week and if the listigns dont update then that can screw up your Series link. If that happens alot then do the unplug for 10sec and leave in standby for a min.

    well it is skys fault for implementing such a shoddy, insufficient, weak, error-prone, incomplete shambles of a system!
