Can only schedule a week ahead

Quite often I see programmes I want to record which are scheduled more that a week ahead. Other manufacturers' boxes can handle this, but Sky+ can't.

 

This is highly restrictive - surely a software update could fix this?

Please Note: Sky+ is now a legacy service that Sky are replacing with their newer services: Sky Q, Sky Glass and Sky Stream

This feature has been requested for many many years and fell on deaf ears, there is no way it will happen now as there will be NO new software updates

Ah sorry - I meant Sky Q of course. Same problem applies. Should I repost in the Sky Q forum?

I've moved this thread to the Sky Q board and removed your duplicate thread. The same answer applies. You can only schedule recordings a week in  advance. That's very unlikely to change for satellite set ups.

Series link obviously records past the week if scheduled.

 

If you're not at home you can remote record via the SkyGo app.

Re: Can only schedule a week ahead

@Daniel0210 Thanks for sorting out my senior moment and moving this to the Sky Q board 🙂

 

@PandJ2020 Yes I use Series Link all the time with no problem and it's not a question about not being at home (useful tip though). I often come across new programmes or series mentioned in Digital Spy for example that I want to watch, but quite often they are more than one week ahead, so I have to wait until a week beforehand to set up, assuming that I remember!

 

It's very frustrating as my son has no such problems with his Virgin box. Is it really such a problem that Sky can't extend the EPG time beyond one week - especially since others can?

 

Being new to these boards, the next thing I need to do is to find out how to un-anonymise my user name 🙂

@Daniel0210 Thanks - I'll probably leave things as they are  for now.

@Anon246  As it's VERY unlikely that this will ever be implimented, why not just set a reminder in your phone to prompt you to set the recording in the week that the future programme is scheduled for?
