I spend much of my time in Spain. My VCR recorders which I had purchased in one of our local charity shops after about a year started to go wrong.
As I can't seem to find anyone locally to repair them I opted to send off for a RHT498 DVD RECORDER from Amazon UK. Prior to ordering I contacted the manufacturer LG to make sure it was compatible with my Sky box. They rassured me that it was. However on receipt I found that the timer functionality doesn't work. I received the following reply to my e-mail:
Unfortunatley you won't be able to set up a timer record from your sky box you will only be able to complete a instant recording which is to start recording at the start of the programme you wish to record.
We hope this helps, should you require further assistance please do not hesitate to ask, you can contact us on the number below, via email or through our live chat facility Monday - Friday, 9am - 6pm.
