    Sky+ App Photo Sharing

    This is a discussion on Sky+ App Photo Sharing within the Sky news and announcements forums, part of the SkyUser Announcements category; I don't think anyone's mentioned it but the photo viewing feature is only supported on DRX890 & 895 Sky+HD boxes ...

      I don't think anyone's mentioned it but the photo viewing feature is only supported on DRX890 & 895 Sky+HD boxes (Those with a version number beginning with 4f31).

      The older boxes, regardless of there version of software will miss out on this feature.

      It will, or at least should, be supported by all the Sky+ HD STBs in due course.

      You need at least R010 for the photo sharing to work.

      Hi Scubbie,

      I was told by Graham that it’s only those boxes with a versionnumber beginning with 4f31 which support photo viewing and Sky’s webpages seemto indicate that:

      http://help.sky.com/articles/get-started-with-sky-snapshots
      "Your Sky+HD box is compatible if you have a versionnumber beginning with 4f31".

      http://corporate.Sky.com/media-centre/news-page/2014/view-your-photos-on-your-tv-with-the-new-updated-skyplus-app

      "Compatible Sky+HD boxes for photo sharing are: DRX890,DRX890W, DRX890WL, DRX895, DRX895W, DRX895WL.”

      There doesn't seem to be any sign of this feature in my sky+ app on my SGS4 running 4.4.2 firmware.

      Those boxes with the following versions only will work:
      4F31
      4F30
      9730
      9F30.

      I can't check mine at the moment as the wife is hogging the TV and she is mean!

      Re: Sky+ App Photo Sharing

      For some reason, my S4 is not finding my sky box.

      My box is connected to the Internet via cable.
      I have a firmware version that allegedly works (4F31), so I can't work out why my phone is not connecting with the box.

      I also tried a Motorola tablet and have the exact same problem. It searches for a sky box on the network, but never finds one.

      Is it possible that it will only work if using a legit sky router?

      I am not.


      Anyone any ideas?

      If you go into parental controls there is a tab named as connectivity. There are two options in here which are "share what's on this box" and "display photos sent to this box", are they both set to on?

      Not looked. I will check that and I can only assume that is the problem.
