After 20 years with sky I switched to virgin because of trees blocking my signal.
The broadband is great, but what is this Tivo nonsense? nothing about it is any good at all. with sky you just did what you want. this is a ridiculous system. When you do a series link it records everything to do with that show even if it is not in the same series. on demand stops playing part way through a show most of the time.
The my show sections is just a load of stuff thrown randomly into a folder.
There are many more issues.
Does anyone who used sky, not feel the same.
Did I say the broadband is amazing? 203 down 12 up
Having now got lumbered with Sky, I can only suggest you give it a little time and, as has been suggested elsewhere, check what you're actually recording. New or "New and Rerun" are you're best options.
By comparison the Sky box is complete kack. Its inability to understand that you might want to think more than one episode of (for example) Eastenders ahead and plan how you are going to cope with just two tuners is, frankly, very 1990s. With TiVo I had nearly 100 series links going on, and still had to check that it didn't try and use all three tuners at inappropriate times (like when I was in). With Sky, I've managed to handle about six series links, and have a piece of A4 with days that things are on that want to download after they've been added to On Demand.
The ONLY thing that I've found that is better is the Box Sets and the way it downloads programmes for you.
I set a series link for Sherlock using new only on bbc1. When I checked the same episode was going to be recorded two days later on bbc3 Both were shown as new. If I wish to record a series of reruns how do I record one copy of each episode if it is show several times each week. But worst of all probably, is the terrible lag. You push a button and nothing happens so you push it again when the page eventually comes up, it applies the second push to the next page.
