      why is my sky plus stupid?

      the mrs wanted that "killing me softly" on 5 tonight..

      Set the Sky Plus to record it..

      came in tonight and find it's only recorded the first part.. (obviously a news break in the middle) and not the second part...


      why does my sky plus not know I want to record thewhole thing?

      Its a Channel 5 thing...by putting the news headlines on half way through, your Sky EPG sees the two parts as two separate programmes (with the news headlines as being a programme too).

      The only way round it is to set both parts to record (not sure if it would show as a 'series link' but would be better if it was).

      Don't blame your Sky+ box, blame 5.

      It;s frustrating isn't it, but it's not Sky's fault. In my opinion, the broadcaster (Five in this case) should send the EPG info out as 1 big program with the EPG info stating that there will be x mins of news in the middle of the film.
