    Yep, another really disappointing xmas selection by sky.

    And the karate kid 1-3, air bud and die hard 3 always seems to be on.

    Sky's great (although pricey) until you have a fault with it.

    It takes forever (litterally) to get to get through to them on the phone and then the results can be pretty poor.

    My last experience was on 11th December. The thing just completely stopped. It was "searching for channels", constantly. Great.

    Got through to sky, spoke to one agent who was clueless, so was put through to the Sky+ technical division (yeah right) who was clearly overseas. He went through exactly the same as the firts agent; ie check & unplug (yup - I'd already done that), so was then put through to someone else as there was a fault with my system (no 5hit sherlock).

    Because I live in a thwo bedroom semi cottage with the dish on the chimney I need a high lift (!!) engineer to look at the dish. God help those that live in flats.....

    The earliest they could book me in...? 11th January - a month later!! I moan a treat so the lady says that she'll email the engineering dept and get an earlier dates from them, and that they'll ring me in the next day or so.

    (Strangely enough) They don't so I ring them. I speak to another technical advisor who actually know what she's doing!! She gets me to swap the LNB leads around and hey presto the box works, but with ltd functionality; one of the LNBs is faulty so I can only record what I am watching. This is 10000% better than no telly (I habe no aerial) over Xmas!

    The engineers called this morning and replaced the LNB so now we are sorted.

    I've often thought about cancelling Sky, but have come to the conclusion it's like a drug....
