      Cool Sky Hub SR101 LEDs

      Just a short video to demonstrate some of what the new Sky Hub SR101 does. The Sky+ HD LED Blinks when you download load content using the Anytime+/On Demand section of the EPG.



      This occurs with the new EPG (Picasso) and later. Those who have the older EPG do not currently see this activity. Once everyone has the new EPG, then this will be the result.

      I also understand that the LED may blink when there is other activity relating to the Sky+ HD STB over your LAN, such as when the new iPad app is being used. I can't verify this as I don't have an iPad and the app isn't available for my Android phone yet.

      If is also possible to see the LAN port LEDs blinking as well.

      Feeling like a real second hand class around here. Wonder if iPhone5 buyers will be made to wait months and months for a Sky Go version that works?

      Of course not - the real problem is there isn't one single Android vendor, but loads. Perhaps Sky should do an app for non rooted Galaxy S III devices, and you'd still have hundreds of people complaining.

      Androids benefit is that its open. Its also its big downside for media companies who have to licence content :-/

      Fair comment but then I have the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and TV Catchup apps on my SII.

      For now, but the BBC for one uses the Adobe Flash engine to provide video protection - and Adobe have withdrawn Flash from all mobile platforms, and it doesn't work on new releases of Android.

      If Google was to create an encryption system for content into the base OS, you just know it would be 'cracked' as so much of the OS is open, and XDA-Dev's and similar love to circumvent any security. Thus Sky don't have the time/money/justification to write their streaming apps for this platform.

      Its not as if Apple users are in the clear either, the Sky apps don't support half the features of the Apple OS (e.g. Airplay to the TV) because of security concerns.

      Just to clarify though, sure Adobe Flash will no longer be available for new Android phones, updates are still support for any that already have it installed.

      However the applications for the BBC iPlayer and ITV Player can be rewritten to support another method to deliver the content. I just hope that this is not Silverlight.

      What I read is that its been made available on the UK Play store for the BBC to give them time to recode. There was no statement about updates - I would assume Adobe WON'T be doing updates.

      However the applications for the BBC iPlayer and ITV Player can be rewritten to support another method to deliver the content. I just hope that this is not Silverlight.
      I don't think Silverlight was popular on mobile. Did it even exist on anything other than Windows Mobile?

      Obviously many apps that use Flash Player will need to be re-encoded, not just BBC iPlayer. I think YouTube uses Flash Player too, at least it does/did on the website.

      It is also important to recognise that Flash isn't dead. Far from it in fact. Flash will be included as standard for the next round of browsers to be released next year.

      As for Silverlight, that was a snip at the Sky not-Go app.
