I Have heard a rumour that the regional ITV channels are to go onto the EPG similar to the regional BBC channels. I ask this because i live in Cyprus running SKY+ and am unable to receive ITV London any more, so consequently as i have a London regional card I am unable to record ITV. Has anyone heard whether this is going to be the case or is it just a rumour. If it is true does anyone have any idea what the timescale is until it is up and running. I don't want to go through the hassle of "moving to the midlands or east anglia" just so i can get ITV back. I am able to watch ITV via other channels but not record.

cheers in advance

Easiest short-term fix would be to use an external VCR to record the channel you are watching, leaving the SKY+ record facility for other channel.

Certainly sounds like another rumour born of wishful thinking.
