    Nathan, you're a gem, thanks for that. Hadn't actually realised it was recording another show (started that recording yesterday, surprised it was active day). Either way, all good now with recording two satellite channels concurrently so it's all working. And the house is totally loving it, easily the slickest system I've used, there's lots of little customisation options and little features that really make it a joy to use so far. thanks again.

    Great to hear you are up and running Jules, and just to add some further info to that from MM with regard to timeshifting. I started using an SSD to try it out, but fears of overuse made me start to use a RAMdisk instead. I have 16Gb RAM fitted, but as I use Win7 can only really use 3.5Gb for the OS, the remainder is used as a virtual drive for the timeshift files. It works great, and is very responsive too. I have now been using RAMdisk for about 2 years and never a hiccup. Timeshift HD TV flawlessly.
