      It does work on Vista, http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-p...e-premium.html
      The problem is the DRM upgrade, you need to be logged in as administrator to do it.

      Sky Player, I think if it takes off Sky will most likely start producing some sort of IPTV box... interesting concept mmmmm

      The HD box has an ethernet connection to it.

      So hopefully some iPTV connectivity though that in a future update.

      You do not need Sky player to watch the new Live TV from Sky, it plays in the browser (I have used Firefox and Internet explorer) I have used it on both XP and Vista home Premium.

      Mine still isn't working with live channels (I subscribe to Multiroom). It just says:

      'Unable to play video. Please try refreshing this page. [MF]'

      Is anyone else having this problem? I have e-mailed Sky, but am still awaiting a response.
