      Sky Anytime on PC - slow...?

      I Have installed Sky anytime on PC. All installed OK and appears to be working. But when I click the download button seemingly nothing happens.

      I have MID package (connected at about 7Mb/s) sure that's fine. But no traffic appears on my internet connection. However, if I leave it for a while it sometimes works. Is this just me? Is it a temporary problem with sky anytime?

      Any help and tips would be great. Thanks.

      I think as your internet browsing will not be slowed down by Sky Anytime (Sky's FAQ says this) then if you're using your PC, Anytime won't do anything.

      It will only download after a period of inactivity, no idea how long that period is.

      Re: Sky Anytime on PC - slow...?

      I thought the "wont intefere with internet speed" thingy is when kservice uses your PC for uploads? Is it the same for downloads?

      I have tried running sky anytime as the first thing from boot up and it sort of works but not all the time. Looked at CMD > NETSTAT and it opens up loads of different connections. Is this peer 2 peer working OK?
