    Hi, sorry if this has been covered already.

    I got my new subscriber card for Sky plus on Saturday morning, but as you can probably imagine I haven't stuck it in yet because I'm worried about my recordings getting 'lost'. The letter accompanying the card suggests viewing any material recorded more than six months ago, which doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the process.

    I know there was a lot of chat a few months back when the 'normal' digibox cards got sent out, but I remember the conclusion was that Sky were not ready to update the Sky+ cards at that time.

    Well, I'm sat here looking at one now. Has anyone else changed their Sky+ card already, and did anything 'go wrong'?

    Got mine last week and the change over went smoothly, no programs lost. In the DS forum some users have said they did lose long term recordings and that was the assumption for the delay in releasing the SKY+ cards, the extra time allowing us to watch/archive old programs.

    Thanks for the reply, if only Sky+ had the sense to include the month of the recording in addition to the day, then perhaps I could work out if any of my 'old' stuff is over six months. Oh well, I suppose a precautionary session of archiving to DVD-R is my next step, boring task or what?
