Not Happy Eurosport % Sky

Set my Sky+ for the WRC this morning and got 26 minutes of tennis followed by 4 minutes of the WRC

You'd think Sky+'s EPG would be smart enough to cope

That would mean a broadband connection over 96Kbps wouldn't it

Bloody BT. Don't know if I hate them or News Corp more. I'm glad I don't put money in either of their pockets

Re: Eurosport % Sky

They always do the same on the cycle racing on Eurosport, sit down to watch an advertised race and it's beach darts or ice tennis or something instead. Swines.

Re: Eurosport % Sky

I've got Virgin media's V+ box. It's HD too, for free. If it wasn't for the fact That Virgin only have 1 HD channel, the BBC HD channel and it takes years to get anything done via there telephone customer service it would almost be worth it.

That said the V+ box has always been sound.

Re: Eurosport % Sky

Yeah, with Sky+ if I am recording something that is on after something that has no set end time, such as tennis etc, then I record the shows both after and before just in case, and also have the box turned off. It does help, but it's a pain in the a$$ yeah.

Re: Eurosport % Sky

I (nearly) always record the next programme too, I tried the extend recording time option but it can only add 15min(??) which wasn't always enough.

Eurosports Rally NZ coverage was bit rubbish,
ITV4's coverage of the whole rally went out about the same time as Eurosports coverage of day2.
