      On the Sky web site the new wireless connector shows that the rear of the box has an ethernet connector and a socket for a power adaptor, I can't see anything about only needing a USB connector.

      That's the older bigger adaptor, the mini has a mini USB socket and uses this for data and power

      Fine but that resolves to BSkyB which doesn't really help.

      I had also tried to identify it from its USB Vendor ID 0x27d5 or 10197 in denary but there is a gap in what I believe to be the official list of USB vendor IDs http://www.usb.org/developers/tools/comp_dump/usb.if

      Wonder when this'll be launched in Ireland.
      I got the original adaptor in April I believe when Sky did an offer for 2 months of Movies for free and a wireless adaptor.
      I've always wondered why the adapter is €12.99 here and 21.99 in England.

      As you can hopefully see, this is a different product.

      Hi Scubbie,
      Any word on it's Irish release date? Will it be the same as the UK's?

      The price was 10.00 in UK while they had it on special offer. When the offer expired the price went up.

      Thanks for that, was the offer also in the UK for 2 months free movies and a free wireless connector? It was to celebrate Sky Disney's launch I believe. Curious as I'd love to be able to free up an outlet for where the current Wireless connector lives.
