Sky HD Guide / Planner why is it so slow?


When I first got Sky HD a few years ago it was great. The menu’s were fast the picture excellent, it wasn’t perfect no. Yes the series linking would sometimes take 10 attempts and fast forwarding at 30x would often see it jump 30minutes for no apparent reason.

So I was looking forward to the much delayed upgrade. But if only I’d know it was going to be so slow. Going into the planner and scrolling down the list is ssslllloooowwwwwww to say the least. Several times I’ve deleted 2 programs as its taken so long to respond I thought it hadn’t received the signal. The series linking does work now and overall things aren’t bad but I was hoping for so much more and certainly wasn’t expecting it to get so slow.

Oh and whilst am having a rant why didn’t they take more of an advantage with the resolution that’s being used, why do programs still not show the full name something Tivo did years ago.

Maybe the slow response is only on my box I’d love to know if other people are having problems, OK so I know they are because three friends have almost thrown their HD box out of the window because its so damn slow.

Sky if you are reading this can we have some of the features of the new one but the response of the old guide please, pretty please.
