      I thought that on previous beta trials the participants were asked not to reveal that they were taking part? I can't be sure but it strikes me as a good idea to "keep a hat on it"! :-o

      This is one of the reasons why I posted the message above.

      Could I also point out that anyone who is lucky enough to be invited to join the beta group will also be asked to agree to an NDA. I appreciate that it is annoying, but please do keep to the terms of the NDA and not disclose what is discussed in the beta group or about the new router.

      Some of the leaks from the recent EPG beta group on some forums "upset" not just Sky's staff, but also the other participants. There was also information "leaked" which wasn't true and people were misquoted in some cases. In one specific instance a person was quoted from something which had been speculated about prior to the last beta group starting. After it had started, the person could not discuss the issue, so please be careful.

      Skyuser ran a poll http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-h...hd-owners.html to find out who had been accepted for a previous Beta Trial.

      Re: Beta Trial

      I appreciate that but since then things have changed.

      I too would love to know right now what the new router looks like, how it performs and the specifications too.

      Having been a part of several beta trials with Sky and having seen how things have changed, I am preempting some of the rules for the new group from Sky based upon current knowledge. Should this change then I am sure that we will get some information soon.
