    Really? It's most recent ABC was 6.8m, which suggests that every still got it in June. has it cahnged recently?

    Edit, sorry, RTEOT.

    That's very interesting, they must have run out of headroom to charge more for advertsing to larger numbers.

    BTW, it's always fun trying to peice together yet another Captain Scarlet inspired argument from the edited posts and quotes from now deleted ones. Like a little detective game.

    I've got 4 Sky bundles only and still get the magazine. Used to be on the family pack but changed a few months back now. They never said I wouldn't get the magazine.

    I changed on Sept 1, I got my last one in November. They claim the labels and printing is done 2 months ahead of delivery.

    I downgraded to 4 bundles in September and they tried the 'you realise you won't get the magazine any more' line in an attempt to get me to change my mind. Unfortunately the magazine still turns up to fill my recycling box with dismal regularity.

    I downgraded to 2 mixes when they brought them out and only this morning my mag fell through the letterbox. BTW there is 2/3 of a page giving some information about the new categories and the channel number changes.

    Gary, I still don't understand how this workround is going to work. Will it prevent the RF pass-through connection from the sky digibox being used by the TIVO internal tuner for terrestrial analogue TV channels and henceforth only be available for radio?

    If you wish to use Sky TV and Sky Radio - then they will be your only two options!

    Sky Radio will use the RF input and so nothing else can.

    Pass-thru will work - but it could not be captured by TiVo using the listings.

    This is pretty poor. I don't use RF for anything any more. :(
    As it stands it looks like yet another nail in the UK Tivo coffin.

    From the little reading I have been doing it seems as though those with network enabled Tivos will be able to make adjustments to allow for "Sky video" and "Sky radio" to both be via scart. Can someone confirm this?

    Yes but that is anyone that can access a BASH shell, not just those that are network enabled. You still won't be able to use the RF tuner for other channels though.

    Oh yes, some people still use serial connections, don't they? Perhaps the same people who still use RF. :cool:
    Lack of RF is not an issue for me, I'm glad to say, and I will have my ethernet bash prompt ready and waiting this time next month.

    Well I still use the serial prompt - sorry! Don't use RF though.

    Still use RF here - its the only way we can receive 'The Oxford Channel'.

    It's theoretically possible, but you're back to my planned hacked approach, which in all honesty won't be worth the effort if Gary's method works as advertised.

    Using RF means that radio recordings will be in mono, won't it?

    Since I just lost the hack I'd better post it here so it is recorded somewhere for when you all need it!...

    Code:
    #!/tvbin/tivosh
    
    set db [dbopen]
     
    RetryTransaction {
     set setupObj [db $db open /Setup]
     foreach signalSrc [dbobj $setupObj get Source] {
        set sigType [dbobj $signalSrc get SignalType]
        if {$sigType != 3} {
          dbobj $signalSrc set Connector 7
      }
     }
    }
    
    dbclose $db 
    
    (If it isn't obvious what the above is then wait till nearer the time!)
