Yes it does, you can watch anything from Sky on it. Although I don't think anything is held on the mini box, I think its all downloaded/streamed via the main Sky Q box and streamed via that over its own wifi.

No and yes - all the recordings are done by the main (silver) box, but everything recorded can be viewed on all the mini boxes. The mini box has no receiver and no storage and does not need to be connected to a satellite dish - however you can use it to watch 'live' TV; record and download programmes; watch anything recorded and stored on the silver box.

By the way, I have just seen that Sky Q is now available for iPhones (previously there was only an iPad App), which is useful.

So does that mean both the main box and the mini box could be watching different recorded programmes at the same time?

Yes it does. I have two Q Mini set-top boxes and they can all watch different programmes (live or recorded) at the same time.

The Sky Q silver box (the main one) has no fewer than 12 tuners, all of which can operate simultaneously. One tuner is dedicated to the live TV at all times while the second supplies feeds for picture-in-picture services. Two others are partitioned for streaming to tablets/iPhones while another two are set aside for streaming to the Q Mini set-top boxes. A further four are used for recordings - meaning you can record up to four shows at once while watching live TV on the main and mini boxes- and the eleventh tuner is used for receiving UI data. Not sure what the 12th tuner is for.

I am purchasing a new telly this week. I think i will go for the 600 panasonic are selling but do i get a sound bar? I have never bought into the whole surround sound malarkey in fact the only time i ever had a system with speakers dotted around the room. I hated it. Always felt like i wanted to turn it down and never felt like you could really want one unless you had a cinema room or something.

Oddly my mini just lost all connectivity yesterday for no reason I could fathom. Turned both off and such but no joy. Eventually got it working after re-pairing it all.

Annoying as my router, sky q box and mini are all within about 15 feet of each other with half a wall between them

Yeah that's ok
The favourites have gone
Remote is garbage, feels so cheap
Can't add a reminder for a program
It feels like it's gone back a generation rather than forwards

I got a pretty decent deal on Sky Q but it's due to finish in a couple of months and I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I love it and really don't want to get rid but I also can't afford to shell out 110 a month on it. I did ring out a while ago and said I wanted to cancel and the guy I spoke to (nice bloke) said I should call back within 2 months of the contract ending as they are unable to apply discounts before that. Probably bollocks but I'll give it a go. I've got a feeling I'm going to have to go the whole hog and get it cancelled before the retentions team give me a call and sort something reasonable out.

On the Bluetooth remote, the voice search works very well. Just press the button on the right (back) of the remote and say what you are looking for (e.g. 'the daily politics'). It recognises even obscure titles and you can also search for actors/performers.

I use a universal remote for tv sky and speakers. But it doesn't have a search button. Can't believe I can't search from anywhere on the menu...!!
