      Go spot, thank you rob_c.

      I've updated the firmware table to include this router. Do you have any further detail?

      I'm sorry I don't have any further detail, I've picked this info up from posts over on the NowTV forum.

      I do have NowTV broadband, but am using a privately acquired SkyQ Hub - ER110.

      Hopefully, one of the recipients of this Hub will know of this site and provide what you need.

      Regards

      Rob

      It's just been confirmed to me on the NowTV forum that existing customers using the NR701 can upgrade to the NR801 for 39.
      Whether that's inclusive of delivery , I don't know.
      I'll stick with the Q hub I got on eBay.

      Received the NR801 a couple of days ago ahead of my switch from Sky Fibre Unlimited to NOW Fab Fibre which is scheduled for Friday.

      So the switch from Sky Fibre Unlimited to NOW Fab Fibre (and from Sky Talk PAYG to Now Calls PAYU) seems to have occurred without any disruption.

      It all happened around 02:00 this morning. Interestingly, the connection dropped for an hour or so and then re-connected.

      Still using the BTOR Modem and an SR102 (that I acquired from Miss speedyrite a while back and had swapped in for the old SR101). Still got the same IP address that I had yesterday on SFU.

      My Sky account no longer shows me as having a Sky Talk & BB package, and my next "future bill" is a refund of charges paid in advance at the last "actual bill". My NOW TV account now shows that my BB & Calls order has gone live. Was recently out of contract with Sky, so no early termination charges incurred. In fact, the next 12 months is just massive cost savings (having signed up 2 weeks ago during the flash sale).

      Just need to get round to swapping in the NR801 (to completely replace the BTOR modem and SR102) at the weekend.
