Sky HD glue melts at high temperature!!


Established Member
This is from Saturday's (29/7/06) Guardian newspaper:

Sky said yesterday it had around 90,000 people signed up for its high-definition TV service at the end of June but only 38,000 actually had the service up and running. Mr Murdoch admitted that supplies of HD boxes were delayed after it emerged that their glue had a tendency to melt at high temperatures.

I have no idea what it means and the article didn't explain it.

Any ideas?

I suspect the term "glue" can mean a very exotic compound used to join components that can not be soldered or are not suitable for an interference join. I certainly hope they don't mean the common household liquid joiner used for sticking together broken cups (before your mum notices) but the principle is probably the same:)

It was believed at the time that manufacturing issues were behind the short supply of STB's back in May.
