      Does anyone know, perhaps from previous beta testing, whether unsuccessful applicants should expect an email or PM advising that their application has been rejected?

      Not heard of anything if you were rejected but I think someone mentioned last time it was about a week after the closing date for successful applicants to be informed.

      I am not aware of anyone getting any confirmation either.

      Please be aware that if you receive a PM back that you should read it. There may be a requirement to explicitly agree to a Non-disclosure Agreement (NDA). Please be aware of this and no matter how tempting it is, please refrain from posting on the public sites before each firmware is released outside the beta group.

      I am subject to a couple at present relating to the EPG and the Sky Hub. Most of the restrictions relating to the Sky Hub have been lifted, as too for the EPG, but there are still pieces which the respective beta groups have been asked to keep quiet about.

      However when the restrictions are lifted, those involved will be in a position to comment and help others who get the respective products.

      Just got a pm now....
      Hi beta triallist!
      Thank you for requesting to be part of the software trial for your
      Samsung/Pace/Amstrad DRX780 Sky+HD unit. If you have been on one of our trials
      previously, you’ll know that we have a dedicated private board specifically for
      your feedback and thoughts on the new design and features.

      etc etc etc.....

      Dont think im controviening anything posting that but ive got a feeling this trial may be less hush hush than the others as its probably just assing features that are already out on the newer box's. But ill do as im told and say nowt if told!!

      The yes's are going up.

      Once again a reminder, if you are in the trial, please respect Sky's wishes over any confidential information and whether or not it can be posted outside of their forums.

      As usual, we will not publish any information from an external beta tester as a website, as we do not want to upset the chances of anyone else being selected for Sky Beta Trials in the future.

      If anything is posted via an external Beta Tester, we shall as from now, immediately remove it.

      Enjoy it those that are on it.

      I have the PM also but the link it gives you to go to the forum says I don't have sufficient privileges, Is it a matter of having to wait till I get the update?

      It took a while before I could get in after the pm, give it an hour or so and you should be fine!
