Thanks Ricardo. An old school friend of mine has been involved with the Bloodhound project (he supplied the ex-Eurofighter air start cart and other technical assistance).

Not particularly glamorous but it does go to show the huge number of people that need to be involved to enable this type of project. I wonder if he'll be in the program? Recorder set!
By the way, I'm not sure if they are still using it but this was the Bloodhound fuel pump for a while!

I've set my recorder too (for 18:00 as Graham has pointed out). My recorder is a TiVo box, it can record 6 channels at once. We record everything and watch at our leisure, fast-forwarding through the ads. A lot more convenient than using multiple catch-up services.

Love it John, no sorry to disappoint but we went HDD around 10 years ago when I got bored with picture quality and the sheer bulk of those VCR's laugh2.

It's generally pretty good but like all these modern software things it does get a bit hormonal every now and again and a reboot sorts it out, it's got three tuners in it so more options than we need.

We updated the tele last week to a Sony Bravia with a ridiculous number of catch up channels available online, which seems to work very well despite living in the forgotten wastelands of South Devon without a fibre connection yet wink

You cannot skip the ads with catch up. I rarely watch commercial telly live so its set to record.
