      Re: 4K Reciever

      The link count should only be decremented when the link no longer exists. Moving a linked entry to deleted or archived should not destroy the link.
      To prevent premature purging a link should exist while ever a programme is available (or is scheduled to be available) in the On Demand catalogue.
      The full unexpurgated version should be held on the server. If necessary edit points could be embedded in the link.
      This would also cover partial recordings preventing the necessity to hold additional copies where the start or end of a programme has been missed.

      Edit:

      This does raise the question as to whether the timing of commercial breaks should be retained and if so should they be stuffed with the original or current commercials?

      I like to go '110' whenever there's an ad break & see something from yesteryear for 4 or 5 minutes.
      I wish it was only 1 or 2 minutes but am still thankful that at least not all channels are in sync.

      I would prefer my viewing to be ad-free but then subscription costs would really rocket.

      With Sky's AdSmart some of those adverts are already changing when you play the recordings back.

      Ok, if like me you hit the fast forward you aren't going to notice this.

      As for removing them, sadly as seawright has pointed out, the subscription costs would rise and several channels would cease.

      Hope this new box will allow what Directtv are offering
      As well as serving up your playlist/planner to other devices locally via your home wifi, it also offers streaming and download of your playlist/planner to other devices on the road.

      Re: 4K Reciever

      Some of those functions are available through the Sky Go, Sky Movies, Sky Sports, Sky Store and Sky+ apps. It would be better if they were all combined into the one application though.

      Technically there would be nothing stopping any new box from Sky from supporting a whole range of applications such as YouTube, Amazon, blinkbox, Dailymotion, Vevo, Plex as well as all the respective CUTV/On Demand apps which can offer more than what is available through the Sky+ HD STB.

      As Sky have already teamed up with Roku, there is a possibility that they have worked together on this project.

      Re: 4K Reciever

      Planner sharing is not available at all on a sky box to a device.
      Sky go is not what this is, its much more.

      I didn't say all the functions, but I do believe that if Sky introduced some kind of Planner Sharing functionality it would be highly popular.

      Virgin Media offer a product they call Multi-room Streaming.
      Share shows between boxes

      Picture this. The kids are happily watching cartoons on your TiVo box downstairs. You’re dying to watch the latest episode of your favourite drama that you recorded earlier, but you don’t want to disturb them. What do you do? Simple. Just stream the show you recorded downstairs to your box upstairs, and leave them to it.
      Better yet, imagine this. You want to hit the sack, but you don't want to miss the finale of the movie you started watching on the sofa. With TiVo, that's no problem either. Just pause the film, then pick up where you left off once you're tucked up in bed. So you never miss that exciting twist, epic last battle or the guy finally getting the girl. Brilliant.
      I don't know how effective it is as I read somewhere that not all recordings can be transferred.
