Text is so outraged lol.

I love the pictures makes it easier to see stuff. Well there are still some parts of the menus that have text until the shows and programmes

What's connectivity like between the main box and the mini?
There have been quite a few updates since launch

6 recordable tuners with the ability to watch another live is the latest. Voice search has also been added.

The picture quality for UHD football is excellent it is available through either the red button on the HD channel or via the Sports menu.

I had a few minor issues with connectivity when I first got Sky Q however it's been excellent of late especially since the latest update.

Thanks Muppetman.

Do you know what the video output resolutions are for the box? Are they individually set or does it automatically force the output based on the content?

Mine only lets you record 3 different channels whilst watching a recording? Are there different boxes?

Yours should allow you to watch a live channel whilst recording 3 , It will be the 1TB box.

The other is the 2TB box which let's you record upto 6 channels whilst watching a seventh it's also UHD.

Oh right. I didn't realise fully the difference between the 1TB and 2TB boxes. I thought the only difference was more storage capacity.
