      Sky Player and live TV on an Apple Mac

      Hi
      I've use the Sky Player website to watch TV on my new iMac. I'd also like to use a Mac Mini I have downstairs. Trouble is, it's not an Intel one, so it can only use Silverlight 1 (the iMac has Silverlight 2).

      Is it still possible to view live TV via the Sky Player website, if I only have Silverlight 1?

      No it doesn't work.

      Just tried it on my old PPC Mac mini.

      The MS Silverlight website states "Only version 1.0 of Microsoft Silverlight supports the Macintosh PowerPC".

      Sky Player page, though, does state that version 2.0 is needed.


      PS. Silverlight 2.0 will not install on a PPC Mac.
