What is the maximum your property can receive Stephen?

We are lucky in that we can also get full speed on the upto 76mb service also however I choose the standard unlimited fibre as we really don't need the faster speeds. In the Sky Q hub page do you now have the powerline option ?

There is an update very soon to the Sky Q system

Re: Sky Q ....likes and dislikes

Nope my firmware still hasn't updated yet.

I can get the full speed as well. Quiet area and can see fibre cab from window.

Going to see how the 38 goes and may upgrade as it's only 5 quid extra.

Re: Sky Q ....likes and dislikes

Well that's My Sky Q installed. Engineer never arrived till 5pm, but all working now.

So far I love it, so fast through menu's and downloading movies from Sky On Demand.

Going to take a bit of getting used to the new remote though.

Re: Sky Q ....likes and dislikes

A lot of people have moaned about the home button landing you on Top Picks rather than the guide that's why I like the touch remote a swipe either way and your exactly where you want anyway.

Re: Sky Q ....likes and dislikes

Sky Q Q003 software update now available

The update needs to be installed for both your main Q box and your Q Minis.

Re: Sky Q ....likes and dislikes

Some are clearly for connectivity issues.

In the installer menu now there's a change

5GHz Wi-Fi channel width

By default it's set to 80 MHz / ch.36 but changeable

Another change when connecting your music with Bluetooth or Airplay your devices now show up as Sky Q Mini XXXX or Sky Q 2TB Box XXXX.

Sky Store now has a small range of TV boxsets to purchase.

There's a few more but not sure if they've been announced yet.

The Sky Q app should be available for mobiles before the end of this month.

Re: Sky Q ....likes and dislikes

There's also a split screen in the sports red button with live on one side and highlights on the other.Also the same restart option for sporting events as in the movies and a prompt to switch to UHD when needed( should have just made that an auto feature )
