Catch up tv, unless in hd from the BBC, is of very low bitrate and will pixelate. Best to record for best quality im afraid.

There is a server outage this morning. It is being worked on as a matter of urgency. Please bear with it.

Not normal behaviour. You should report it to VM.

These problems seem to be more frequent recently.

It depends on the provider.

The Virgin Exclusives are good quality, but I don't often use the on demand service apart from that and the BBC i-Player, which is good. The Sky stuff seems to be all right as well, come to think of it.

Re: V6 issue this morning.

A few times i've found that Sky Cinema on demand immediately makes the box freeze and require a reboot to get out of it.

I now always make sure that there's nothing recording before attempting to use it just in case.

I've never had that. Worth reporting?

Not really worth it as it's only happened about four times in the last 6 months.

Re: V6 issue this morning.

Interesting how my recordings are stored.

Downstairs V6 lists the NRL, Super Rugby, Aviva Premier and Super League in stacks as per normal.

Upstairs V6 has separate entries for each recording.

Any ideas why?

I can answer my own question. For some reason I was viewing recordings using the sport selection on the upstairs box rather than All as I usually do.

Not sure why this shows them individually though - just a quirk I suppose.

Re: V6 issue this morning.

Lately my V6 has been recording duplicate episodes of programmes. It has happened several times and often seems to be a repeat of the final episode of a series. In each case I set my recording preferences to 'new only' 'HD if possible' and to a specific channel if relevant. It seems that if a programme is marked 'new' in the guide then it will be recorded irrespective of whether it has already been recorded or not. All of the duplicate recordings are marked as 'new'. Far better than missing a recording but odd all the same. Anyone else experienced similar?
