      Re: Will SKY+ get SKY+HD software

      I've sadly found the answer....

      Bad news for basic Sky+

      Owners of standard Sky+ boxes had their hopes raised when Sky initially announced the Sky Guide makeover - but this upgrade will only go out to Sky HD owners.

      Sky explained that Sky+ doesn't have the power to process the full channel database it needs to create, and developing the HD Sky Guide has involved rewriting the code on the Sky HD box at a very basic level, which doesn't transfer to the SD Sky+.

      The upgrade includes fixes for more than 100 bugs, many of them collected from reports on user forums, and it's been in development almost since the launch of Sky HD two years ago.

      What Satellite & Digital TV
      May of managed to get the Mrs around the the idea of HD before it goes live anyway!
