SKY HD Remote Record Question

28 replies
Found 10th Dec 2008
I'm just looking on the SKY listings, and want to set a remote record for a movie (The Guardian, Sunday 5.30PM, also in HD). It is being shown on SKY DRAMA, but I want to record the HD version... but there is no SKY DRAMA HD in the listings...How's that work then?

If I win that, you win the most dumb-ass question on the site then "How's that work then?"

I don't see how anyone can be helpful. You want to record something remotely and the channel doesn't appear as an option. So... aside from someone seeing it who works at Sky and manages to update the website to include the missing channel, how can anyone help?

Tell ya what, tell me where you live, pay my costs and I'll drive to your house and set it via the handset for you.

Lol, infraction coming your way.
You obviously don't know how this site works... it's called being helpful. please dont post in threads if you have nothing constructive to say.

Why can only people who work at sky help? do you only have knowledge on wherever you work?

Yeah ok...
No I don't with nearly 500 posts and a fair bit of rep...
If every non-constructive post was removed from this site, well, it'd be a pretty empty place. Unfortunately that is the truth.

I say that because I see it as a limitation of the Sky website having a missing channel. I personally don't see that you have any options. I will happily retract that if someone can demonstrate a way of doing what you have asked though,

Wow, how strange. Apparently only people from SKY would be able to help me.
Wierdly that channel only shows up on the screenreader version for me. :thinking:

That screen reader version is a pain in the ass, as it has no search feature. Though it works on my mobile phone so I can remote record from anywhere without paying that 25p text rip off

Babbabooey;3719178

Look up



I wasn't aware of the screen reader version, that is a very helpful and constructive post and if I knew how the site worked, I'd probably have left him some rep....

Considering the offence you have taken and points you have made, that's a real mature example to set

True though isn't it.

Lets look back... I ask a genuine question for help, you fire in with a pointless, aggressive, negative post (you clearly don't know how the site works otherwise you wouldn't have made the post - see the guidelines on posting such comments if you need a refresher) and continue to do so throughout (and no doubt will continue in some vain attempt to try proving something insteading of manning up and admitting you were wrong.

In the end it turns out that someone was able to answer my question, in the manner this site is intended.

Im with Babbabooey, if you have nothing constructive to say then dont say anything at all! :whistling:

In your eyes only.

"I guess you aren't going to be able to set it remotely then" Aggressive? Ok... If anything, your first response to that was the initial aggressive post.

Anywho, you maintain I don't know how the site works.. I would say you don't when I have some good rep...

I did admit I was not aware of the screen reader??

And as for name calling (troll), yet I'm the aggressive one?

Besides, this sites 'intention', as you put it, is to find hot deals, not solve SKY Remote Record questions. The fact you can post miscellaneous questions,and sell and trade stuff is a bonus IMHO

zzzzz, please go away and leave this thread to the helpful people.

So, serious question, I'm bored of the childishness, are you still not able to do it with the screen reader? It does seem odd that people without the HD package can see the HD channels and you can't?

Ah I notice you had the London setting, mine was West Mids. Once I changed it to London the phantom channels appear. Curiouser and Curiouser.
