Mostly under the bonnet.

However , apparently the Audio drop out problem (DD5.1) has been fixed , & one you can see is that some Telephone Numbers have changed.

Someone claimed that the "Copy bug" (where widescreen programmes were incorrectly output in 4:3 when using the Copy function) was fixed. I have not tested this myself.

Strange to update it for such minor things unless the MAJOR EPG update has slipped!

Certain minor updates & tweaks need to take place , ready for the forthcoming major update.

I'm also still on f although, when I switched on this morning, the box went to the Sky Channel as if they had downloaded something. So am somewhat confused.

I'm on "J" now and I'm not sure if it's a coincidence but every few hours my box displays the "Your Sky+ is about to go into standby".

I only noticed as I leave Sky News on all day in the office and at least three times the TV has turned to static (as the box turned itself into standby). It was only this evening when I glanced up at the TV that I noticed the message (which I'd only seen previously very late at night).

AFAIK, different development teams are working on the new EPG code-base vs. the current EPG. So, no new features being added to the existing EPG, but bug-fixes, yes.

I'm still on the older version. Are they rolling out over time or testing it on "selected" customers?

Ken

The updates seem to roll out in a very haphazard manner, the last major update (Anytime, Auto Stand-by etc) took quite some time before everyone got it. There's just no pattern to it IMHO, perhaps there is to Sky! :rolleyes:

does anyone know or could take a very good guesstimate of the date the MAJOR update will be downloaded??

Errr ..... no, unless you're a Sky insider how could you hope to know, sorry. ;)

Returned from holiday this evening to find everything that was planned to record last night had 'Failed' and the reason given was power cut yet no other appliance in the house showed evidence of a power cut. But I've checked the EPG software and we're on J now so I wonder if its caused the Failed recordings.

Also when we click 'TV Guide' on the remote and on screen the menu appears but for a few seconds the background is all black then appears normal light blue background.

Any other owners out there with EPG 'j' having issues like above?

No, the EPG j is not the issue, I suspect that in the last week most users whatever EPG software they have, will have had the program record clashes and channel selection issues etc, so you're one of many.....:(

I am still on F. Maybe they have stopped the updates because of some bugs, not that such as thing has ever stopped Sky before.
