      No. R016 isn't on the DR stream yet.

      Re: Sky+ HD STB Firmware Versions

      The only noticeable change between R015 and R016 is the Home Page. Ths is why I didn't do a big post when R016 was released.

      There are a few changes under the hood, but they are mainly to add some needed support for new codecs that will be used by a broadcaster or two soon.

      So what is different and why?

      Quite a few people complained about the layout of the 'Top Picks' area on the home page and also the Mini TV has been changed a little.

      Depending on the version you have, you may see a solid 'Top Picks' bar, one with a small box marked 'Top Picks' to the left and a large advertising bar to the right or a small 'Top Picks' to the left and two advertising images to the right.

      Sky are monitoring the feedback to see which people like and which they dislike.

      Sky seriously annoys me. My box has downgraded itself to R015.084.51.02P as I've been on R016 for over a month.

      God damnit!

      Freakin Peppa Pig again. This is the second time this has happened. Must have happened 2am.

      This is intentional and should have happened for everyone who was on R016.

      After evaluating the feedback about the 3 different homepage layouts on R016, Sky has decided not to roll R016 out.

      Why were there 3 different home page layouts. On mine the top picks used to be a huge bar.

      Re: Sky+ HD STB Firmware Versions

      It would appear that following beta testing three different release candidates of R016 firmware were produced, I can only assume that a final release was never produced (or has been delayed) due to adverse customer feedback.

      Re: Sky+ HD STB Firmware Versions

      I suppose there was one good outcome with this happening. For some unknown reason with R016 I lost the optical decoding. There was the red light but no sound. Had to switch to coaxial.

      Since the downgrade to R015 I got the sound back. So glad as I didn't want to have the box replaced when really it was a software issue.
