      There was a rumour circulating the press conference that the BBC wants a 35 hour day but that the Government insist that everyone should be able to manage a 72 hour day even at the weekend. Of course this would mean that any children who refuse to work a 45 hour shift would have their parents imprisoned.

      I suppose there's no end to what could be achieved, the phrase the SKY's the limit comes to mind....

      Other than use an external powerline adaptor as can be done with the present Sky+ HD boxes then yes that is exactly what will happen.

      I must admit to being a little underwhelmed after reading the spec, its nothing that a decent home network can't do with a decent NAS, I can also see a large migration to Netflix, given to proposed price point. In fact if Netflix start to add a few of the channels that the misses watches, I'll be saying by by to sky.

      Any discussion of prices at the moment is pure speculation. I would suggest that, like I will have to do, you wait until they release the prices 'early next year'.

      Re: 4K Reciever

      Incidentally, the spelling of the word 'receiver' in the heading needs to be changed

      Sorted!

      Sadly the spell checkers in most of the browsers now tend to miss the heading line. However if you go into 'Advanced' for the reply, you can change the heading so that any future posts should pick up the new heading.
