      Mavericks Sky Go strangeness

      Any Mac users on the forum updated to OS X Mavericks? If so has you Sky Go done anything strange?

      The channel order of the Live TV section makes no sense on mine, here's a screen grab to show what I mean.

      No, it's completely random.

      The screenshot was taken when using Safari 7.0 , if I use Chrome it's fine.

      Can you give Safari a try just to see?

      OK Here is your answer.
      If you are using Safari on Mavericks the you need to access 'Developer Mode'. Here you will find the 'User agent' menu. Select this and choose another agent such as Firefox.
      Open / reload the sky live web page again and you will see all is correctly displayed. You will need to do this each time you open Safari to view sky web TV as you can't permanently default to your own selection.
      The reason is that the 'Default user agent' doesn't work with sky.
