Tivo with Sky or NTL. Which operates better?

I am moving in the UK and have two Tivo boxes. I've used NTL in the past. My only problems were with Tivo's downloaded schedule being off, particularly for cable channels where NTL had different networks on the same cable channel at different times of day.

Is there any consensus as to whether Tivo works better with Sky or NTL? Is there a noticeable difference in schedule accuracy between the two?

I switched from NTL to Sky when I moved to Scotland 3 years ago. I can't say I have noticed any significant diference.


Sky/TiVo 6020 + 2x120Gb + Cachecard; Freeview/Tivo 601E + TurboNet;
Sky/Vista MCE; 2*Freeview/Vista MCE

I have a TiVo on NTLdigital and another on Sky Digital.

TiVo wise there isn't any difference - except for the direct IR connection into the back of the Sky box which allows the IR sensor on the front to be covered to prevent IR clashes.
