    Helen Of Troy was on late on Friday - both parts. I set them up to record as I went to bed, missing the first 2 minutes of part one.
    When I checked the recordings yesterday, it told me part one had been cancelled and part 2 had failed completly - for no reason.
    When i switched the Sky box on on Saturday morning, it was on the Sky info channel...
    Was there a software download, or is my Sky+ box suspect...? If there was a download, what does it update...?

    There wasn't any global software update, did you have the latest software before Friday? If not then SKY may have been updating specifc groups with software patches (v2 pic fix perhaps) that hadn't been update previously.
    You obviously would have noticed a power cut if that had happended:)

    AFAIK I had the right software...and my box is a V1 so it wouldn't have been the fix for the v2 pic problem...
    I'm just curious 'cos I've had Sky+ since it started and this is the first time my box has missed a recording...

    I had a failed recording also on Friday night.

    Missed Bo Selecta :mad: The series link picked up the repeat for Saturday night and it recorded fine. Also missed Top Gear the week before last.

    My Pace v2 box has up to date software and has no other faults.

    My conclusion? - It doesn't like my taste in TV! :laugh:
