      Sky Go is a joke

      First, I couldn't watch because my device wasn't one of the two allowed devices, yet they still showed me every single advert before telling me this, so I had to remove another device, and add this, then watch the adverts again

      Now I finally got it working, it doesn't even let you go full screen on a secondary screen.

      The second you click away from it, it goes back to the small screen so it's unwatchable on my TV

      It's stupid how a service you pay for is worse than stuff you can download for free.

      MultiMonitor TaskBar
      LooieENG,
      Are you saying you are using your TV as a second screen ffrom your desk/lap top? If you are you needto download a small program called MultiMom Taskbar and use that as it makes all screens on your kit seperate and that will solve your problem, well it does for je and others I know.

      Why not temporarily change which screen is the primary screen?

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB

      Re: Sky Go is a joke

      Often people view TV or video full screen on a separate monitor while still working, browsing, or whatever on the main desktop.

      I've not used multimon for a few years now but it did used to do some great things. Not sure of its most recent incarnation but only add I've not used it. I'm sure Paul's recommendation is certainly worth a go . . .

      Re: Sky Go is a joke

      I will try that, thanks Paul

      @Scubbie it tends to go back to normal screen size if you click somewhere else off that screen

      Yes it will go back when you click on the other monitor but with mutlimon you control each screen, download the pro trial, its better than the free 1 and it does not seem to run out on trial lol, been using it for 4/5yrs lol
