manaia: I understand that you have to have either a booking or a series link programme in the planner to keep the series link alive. If the series has finished then there will be no booking so the only way to keep the series link alive would be to keep one of the programmes in the series. If you do this and another programme turns up with the same series ID then it will be booked. Unless you get a box with another person's programmes or bookings actually showing in the planner I don't see that you would be able to pick up their links, so this seems unlikely.

I am sure that is not the case. I had no bookings showing for Darren Brown, JAG or Monk, and no recorded programs of them either. Bookings then showed up out of the blue. In all three cases, I had series link on the whole time. During the two or three week hiatus for JAG and Monk, for example, there was no advance booking, and I had watched and deleted all recorded copies of them.

I do believe you are correct. I haven't had time to test it out for myself though. I originally thought that series links were automagically managed in the background. Then I was told (authoritatively I thought) that you had to have an entry in the planner to keep the linking alive (a booking or the last recorded show). This would not be as good if it were true. Thanks for putting me right.

Hi Manaia, thanks for that. You said that "you just have to split the signal from the dish to feed the two tuner inputs." - Does that mean that you can't have both a normal digital decoder and a MySky decoder running off the same satellite??  Or, does that get done at the MySky box level?  Thanks again for all your help on this.  H

hilton2000: Hi Manaia, thanks for that.

You can hook up as many decoders, both original and PVR, as you like to the dish - you might have to amplify the signal after 3 or 4. Each tuner in the decoder  has an external F-type connector: one for legacy boxes and two for the PVR. If you get a PVR installed SKY will fit a 'splitter' device (a small box with one input and X outputs) behind it to split the signal from the dish into two cables to feed the twin tuners. If you have a second decoder then you might split the signal in a central place in your house and run cables as appropriate, maybe even to a second splitter behind MySKY.
