    Random Question about Sky+ Recording with No Contract

    I've just hooked up my old Sky+ HD Box as I was curious to see if it had retained the Sky+ recording facility since I left Sky a few months ago. I've read a few posts online from some people who claimed they were still able to do that. Got everything booted up, went in to the program guide and...

    Sky TV Connected to Virgin Broadband

    Hi, I'm looking at the possibility of moving my TV provider to Sky (Q?) whilst keeping my Virgin broadband (SHub3). The SHub is currently in an upstairs bedroom whereas (I assume) the Sky TV box needs to be near the TV in the lounge. What are my options for connecting the SHub to the Sky TV box...

    SkyQ new customer - tips? HDR and refresh rate issues…

    Left Sky in 2004, so it’s been a while. Not sure if we’ll stick with this past the contract period, but thrown it on as we’re not getting out as much, and the Freeview box was acting up. We have the Entertainment (Signature?), Cinema, Ultra HD and Ultimate TV Netlflix and multiroom package. I...

    UHD HDR Movie Release Delays

    I noticed that, although A Quiet Place 2 premiered on Sky on Friday, the UHD HDR version only became available today. I'm quite new to Sky Q and wanted to know if this is Sky's normal practice. It's annoying because I just watched the movie yesterday in HD thinking Sky weren't going to show it...

    Sky HDMI to another TV (best method?)

    Hi, My mother has had Sky for a number of years, and I'd connected TV Link (using coax from the box to the 2nd TV), and it worked great. A few months ago her Sky box packed in and was replaced by Sky. The new box has no coax output, just HDMI (I'm going from memory as I live 2 hours from...
