      Re: Sky gears up to launch SkyQ

      SkyQ appears to be an integrated system. Fine for someone new to Sky but not for the existing customer who already has more than one box. If I wanted to replace the Sky+ HD box in the lounge with a SkyQ or SkyQ Silver box would it make my other Sky boxes obsolete? Due to a different LNB being required I guess it would unless I wanted to have a second dish installed.

      As for fluid viewing must I replace my Multiscreen Sky HD box with a SkyQ Mini or limit my viewing to a tablet? Why shouldn't I be able to carry on watching a programme on my existing box?

      Sky gears up to launch SkyQ

      I wonder if there is any technical reason a current DRX89x box could not be used as a kind of Sky Q mini, we know they have the power to stream. It would not be able to have the same User interface but could give access to programming and recordings.

      As you say, we know it works fine (especially for those with decent, robust LAN connectivity around the home). It would be nice if BMR were to finally see the light of day as a product for those multi-room customers who can't afford or don't want to upgrade to Sky Q. I said way back when that I expected to see the feature again one day and anticipated it as a chargeable extra, so I suppose I was sort of partly correct!

      Good article and 53% of readers who clicked on the vote agreed with me.. NO MORE MONEY Mr Durroch! Anyway , it the Daily Express.... so it cannot be true. By the way, the say we are expecting 18 feet of snow and aliens should appear over London on new years eve.

      My wife occasionally watches TV on our tablet and I'm sure I have only SKY +HD and BB.
      It may well be via Sky Go though.

      Talking of snow though. I was in a discussion? about bets on snow on Christmas Day.
      There could be 18 feet of snow over the rest of the country, but the Met Office won't accept that it is snowing unless there is at least one flake on the Met Office roof.

      It is via Sky go, but the NEW 'Q' will allow her to watch stuff she has recorded too, so much to watch and so little time... ( I'm being ironic if you were unsure )

      Would you be referring to Pink Floyd there?

      I saw them play 'Animals' live at Stafford Bingley Cow Shed ( sorry Hall ) back in about '77.

      Sat on dunlopillo matting and the first Quad sound system I had ever heard, my ears rang for days!

      Yes,
      The first time I saw them too was in 1977 and have seen plenty since. Was in March 1977 at Olympia, what a small world.
      Annoyingly have no photos, but remember it as if it were yesterday. Do have the ticket stub in the loft.
      But then a different world, rarely carried a camera and certainly no Gopros.
      But do have some good bootlegs of that tour.
      Yeh quad sound setups and projections, just puts this 4k ''yawn" stuff to bed LOL.

      Won't allowing us to record stuff affect the sales of "catch up" services??
