I understand their dilemma but the least they should be able to do is keep your old card live so that you can access those recordings for say 12 months or so. Even better do some limited upload and download to Sky to transfer them.

Another example I guess of Sky saying - stuff the customer - this is what we are doing.

You can transfer - but it isn't easy. I am getting SkyQ installed in April, so I am in the process of backing up stuff I want to keep (mostly Palace matches in HD).

To do this you need something to record from HDMI and - crucially - something to strip away the HDCP (such as To view the link you have to Register or Login). It isn't sold as an HDCP stripper, but it works as one.

To record, you can use something like the To view the link you have to Register or Login or To view the link you have to Register or Login or even the To view the link you have to Register or Login.

Hope that helps.

Power lines are not active yet, which is a pain. To access the mini guide you can press the select button as well.

James - great to hear from you and it sounds as if you are still bang up to date with AV stuff! Great advice. I will look into it. Criket I wish I had known about one of these before TBH - I will just order one at that price and work out later if I need it

Cheers

Glad to be of help. If anyone needs further guidance, please send me a PM.

I may also be able to help with networking. It's true that the Powerline option isn't functioning yet (and may never work for those, like me, who have declined to take Sky broadband). However, you still can use Powerlines/Homeplug AV's now if you use something like To view the link you have to Register or Login 1200 Mbps may be overkill (although remember that the 1200mbps number is full duplex - so, 600 up, 600 down) and less expensive, slower ones are available.

SkyQ can connect wirelessly; using the built in Powerline technology; AND using Ethernet - so by using your own Homeplugs, you can connect the SkyQ Silver and the mini boxes using the Ethernet ports. I shall be using the latter configuration as I live in a fairly large, old, house and wireless does not travel well through the stone walls.

I would stop my subscriptions tomorrow if I could get sport in HD.

I hate the way sky / virgin do things like put arbitrary limits on concurrent watchers or how many devices etc. Feels wrong after using netflix/amazon etc.

I'd gladly spend 50 quid a month for Premier league football delivered Netflix style and cut the cable.

Premierleaguepass if you use a VPN is about $50 for a full season. All HD sports channels included.

I'm too old for all that VPN nonsense.

I want to be able to watch on multiple TVs,multiple devices.

No faff.

Just works.

If this was the states we would have something

Why don't the premier league sell straight to me. I'd pay loads. Like those MLB idiots in the states.

OK mobdro on android.

It's free and easily understandable for those too old for VPN faffing.

And for all you sensible young un's who are on limited budgets, it's way, way better that both live media player and universal tv. The only downer is no iOS version.

I got it at the weekend. Love it so far. Bit disappointed that the fluid viewing only works on tablets and not phones or the Kindle Fires. I'm sure that will change.
