      ^^This FW will be rolled out cautiously. Had you read the first few pages you would know that Sky are launching the FW in stages. If something were to go wrong they could stop the update at anytime. Hence avoiding a total disaster.

      There would be very little benefit in doing that really. There isn't a microcontroller which combines both functions, so apart from sharing the case and the power supply circuitry, there would be very little opportunity for reducing the production cost. And what little saving there would be would be more than eaten up by the extra costs involved in when replacing equipment under warranty. They would also be issues like the best place for the STB to sit (i.e., near to the TV) isn't likely to be the best place for the router to sit (i.e., close to the master socket).

      I am going to split these threads off and move to other thread, and then close this one, so we have all the info in one place.
