Does anyone know how often and when a stb communicates with sky.Is there anyway of detecting when its happening


Distinguished Member
About once a month at random when it receives its call home signal, usually in the wee small hours. The only ways of detecting it are the "online" led on the box lights up OR you pick up the phone and hear the modem noise.

But you have to be quick. It can be as short as 5 seconds.
