      Question SkyHD fSfS box ethernet port?

      Today I was looking around on Sky's site at the SkyHD box (multiroom style), and I saw it had an ethernet port. Does anyone know whether or not this box supports any form of On Demand or any interactive services via broadband?

      Not at present though there have been rumours that it will in the future. I believe that the Sky+ app can be used to change channel if the box is network connected. Perhaps someone who has one of these boxes could confirm whether it can also be used to set reminders?

      I didn't think it did just right now, considering you need to download the shows on the Sky+. Thanks anyway, wasn't a major selling point I suppose

      I think there are plans afoot to allow you to stream recorded programs from your main box. When this will be introduced, I have no idea.
