      Out of interest when are the titles of the movie channels going to update from the old ones on the EPG as mine are still not showing as cinema. Hope this makes sense.

      Sky hasn't posted a list of which films have been sorted out and which are in the works.

      Last night I watched Spectre. The sound from the live transmission was noticeably louder in many sections that previously. Where as previously I might needed to crank up the volume on my HT to 22-25, this time I had to keep to 18-20, depending on what was happening.

      I would suggest that the new ones being shown have worked on. Beyond that it'll be guess work for now. Perhaps members could report back which films they've watched and what they were like please? It will be important to include dates & source (i.e. 8/7 Sky Premiere HD live & pre-downloaded) as the live transmissions might be different from On Demand.

      Spectre (recorded from broadcast yesterday) takes up 7.5 GB on the Sky Q box (2.66 GB/hr).
      John Wick (recorded from broadcast a while ago) takes up 4.5 GB (2.48 GB/hr).
      An extra 7.5% for the "improved quality" - does that seem about right?

      Spectre on demand is listed as 4.8 GB (1.99 GB/hr assuming 145 mins.)
      John Wick on demand is listed as 3.3 GB (2.02 GB/hr assuming 98 mins.).

      Maybe interesting, maybe not.

      There may be a quick way to tell after all.

      The icons indicating what issues there might be in the film have changed. The new ones are a little more fancy, whilst the old ones are still present for films which haven't been updated.

      Example: Spectre's "The following films contains" images are red 'shiny effect' icons, whilst The Little Mermaid still has the white triangle with a red border to indicate that 'Flashing Images' are in the film.
