Hi guys (and guyettes),

   Just wondering if anyone can shed some light on a rather baffling conundrum.
  
Last Monday (April 9th) we set our DVD recorder for "Waking The Dead" as broadcast on TV One at about 11:10pm.


HOWEVER, upon later viewing the recording we are seeing the Sky1 logo together with the Sky 1 program of "The Sopranos" followed by "Family Guy".


Since we do NOT subscribe to Sky, can anyone offer any explanation for this?  And no, my daughter did not record Sky then transfer it to the DVD as a joke <BG>.... in fact the consecutive episodes of "Waking the Dead" were programed in at the same time and the Tuesday night episode recorded corrcetly !!

R.

There is nothing wrong with your television. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are now controlling the transmission. We control the horizontal and the vertical. We can deluge you with a thousand channels or expand one single image to crystal clarity - and beyond. We can shape your vision to anything our imagination can conceive. For the next hour we will control all that you see and hear. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the deepest inner mind to... The Outer Limits.

Sky1 is broadcast on UHF. My guess is that your DVD recorder has the Sky1 channel programmed in and you've accidently recorded the wrong channel. There are times where Sky1 is not broadcast scrambled.

Sbiddle,

   That was my first thought too and realise that Sky 1 is also broadcast on UHF 8, sometimes unscrambled ... but I have run through all the channels each night to see if we could get a clear Sky reception (other than Trackside) to no avail.

Call Mulder and Scully, I think <bg>.

I think it was one of those nights when it went unscrambled, for longer than, whatever is normal. I don't have sky and I have watched
Sky 1 at times unscrambled and then half way through the program it becomes scrambled again.

Thanks guys, I'm sure it was just a lucky/unlucky hit of the channel button when Sky was broadcasting unscrambled.
