rugrat: Mybe it saves cookies to computer for knowing what favourite channels are. If so using different computer would mean favourite channels wouldn't be remembered.
Need to try from same computer and see if works then.
The modern internet enables your preferences, files, and settings to be stored in the cloud.
Sky are going against the trend and storing local. Maybe it is a security issue and they don't want subscriber favourites to be compromised by hackers?
I agree it would be awfully embarrassing to have pirates figure out you watch the living channel.
Another annoyance is that sky don't display favourite channels as the default view even when I have gone to the trouble of configuring favourites. You must click the ridiculously tiny drop down box to choose 'favourites' view. Isn't that also a curious design choice?
Sky have also blocked lastpass from auto logon too.
