      BBC HD is generally BBC2 content or other Hd content, not BBC one

      BBC one HD content would be all BBC One HD ch 143
      This content has been on sky iplayer since launch

      Yes, but the previous poster is pointing out a new feature. The genre sections (Popular, Featured, Comedy etc) used to be SD only and now also have links to HD content. This only appeared in the last few days.

      Exactly.

      Before it was just BBC1 shows that had BBC HD options next to them. If a show on another channel had an HD broadcast it wasn't put next to the programme so you had to go to BBC HD to find it quickly. Now for non BBC1 shows they put the HD option next to it too.

      Re: BBC iPlayer comes to Sky+

      Reading all these posts am I feeling pretty "miffed" that my box, which is a Samsung model with EPG software version 47.0.16.1 on, is still in the "dark ages"!!!!!! I know that beta testing was on this box a few weeks ago and just wondered if anyone had any info as to when it may go live with the new EPG and therefor BBC I player etc etc ????????

      Thanks

      As I understand it, Sky has started to roll out the firmware for the Samsungs. This will be done gradually so please be a little more patient.

      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB

      The limited release for Samsung boxes has gone much better than the Pace and Amstrad 780. These two have had releases of very buggy firmware which has ruined many users viewing experience. The testing and initial release of the Samsung has gone much better, with no serious complaints. I would not be surprised if the general release and its inclusion on the download stream was made within the next week.

      I wonder how they determine which Samsung boxes to update first?

      As a fellow Samsung owner, I'm currently (im)patiently waiting on this too.
