a bit OT but I agree with you and I cancelled my subscription since then. I saw
all the problems you saw, but the worst ones that hit me were the search function.
I had numerous things that sometimes worked, other times not. Worked when I was not
logged on, but no longer worked when I did log on (which is pretty bad if you want
to add to your merklist). I tried all settings, tried their technical support, all to
no avail.

I was perfectly happy with epg2timers though.

Any tips as to a good alternative site, especially for English channels?

Cheers Brian
