      I noticed after looking around that the cost of a wireless bridge to connect the Sky HD box to anytime plus wirelessly, that most non sky options are not much cheaper at between 45-80.

      Random idea ... what would stop me taking my Xbox 360 wireless adaptor (the one microsoft make) that uses a usb to plug into xbox, getting a usb to ethernet converter cable and then plugging into the sky hd box ethernet port? Or maybe using the sky hd box usb port instead of the ethernet port (if it has one)?

      Would this work as is the xbox wireless adaptor not just a simple wireless dongle which would do the job?

      Thanks
      UPDATE: sky are offering their wireless adaptor for 9.99 they took their time though.

      2nd UPDATE: i have got my wireless connector (the new ''N'' version) and it works perfectly! But the problem is on the catch up (BBC iplayer etc) there is crap TV or little TV on there so it was worth getting it because all the other stuff is good.

      It was 60 last month. Even though the price has gone back up to 21.99 its still a steal.
