      Hello All
      I had a look at SkyQ last Week as My Black Status had an offer of 'Free Install & One Mini at No Cost
      although I like SkyQ my objection was paying 12 Quid more for the same repeats that I get with the
      Family (Boxsets) now. So I keep deferring the decision but with these changes downgrading the kit
      Maybe I should leave Well Alone & stick with My original decision & save the 12.00....
      .

      More Guinness !!! ...........Just a Thought

      Powerline is still there on these new boxes, we had one installed yesterday...I spotted it enabled by default in the admin 0001 settings menu this morning.

      Engineer said they are a new EU product, so they can use in Germany and France, just changing the plug instead of needing different box internals for each country.

      It does run much cooler than our previous Silver, and also has Gbit ethernet instead of the 100Mbit on previous models. The fan is only full here during boot, beyond that it is silent.

      No change here for wireless output strength.

      Seemingly there is also an equivalent new Mini as we had a new one of those too, however it has the usual power lead so not 100%, need to check the hardware version.

      The PowerLine feature is being discontinued, so it won't be there for much longer.

      PlusNet Fibre since Jan 2021
      Previously Sky Fibre & Sky BB since 2010.
