      Devolo dLan 200AV compatibility with Sky HD Box

      Does anyone know if the Devolo dLan 200 AV kit will connect successfully to the Ethernet connection socket on a Sky+ HD box and to the Ethernet socket on my PC/Modem? I would like to be able to view BBC iPlayer and ITV player video on my Toshiba LCD television.

      Devolo advertise that connection can be made to the ethernet socket on a Freesat box, but no mention is made of the Sky+ HD box?

      There is nothing accessible from the ethernet port on the Sky HD box.
      There is no p in Thomson.

      When the box's firmware is upgraded you will be able to access Anytime+ provided you have Sky broadband, don't know if you will get anything else from it, I doubt it. Meanwhile it is a dodo.

      I have my Sky+ box connected to my Router using Powerline/Homeplug devices but until Sky update the box firmware I don't expect it to even show on my Network (and it doesn't). As Tom says even when operational only expect Sky's offerings, if you want YouTube etc you need to buy a TV with LAN connection.

      Many thanks for the advice - it looks as though I will have to abandon my attempts with the Devolo dLan system.
