My Skyplus has been updated this morning to a new model number of 2.057A2.
Just checked Sky sports news and the Picture focus problem seems to have been fixed, can you check your PQ i'm not sure?

The other new features havn't been added yet.

Im a little slow sometimes (this being one) is this a latest hardware upgrade - a new box, or software download thats just occured?

It's software.

Looks like they have fixed the Picture Quality, and I have heard that the operating temperature of the Skyplus has been lowered.
So you may hear the fan running more often than before.

My V1 had been updated, the only thing different I can see is the model number change, obviously didn't suffer from the PQ problems:)
That being said still a comfort to know that it looks like they finally fixed an annoying problem which affected tens of thousands of users.

There's not a lot, from what I have seen looking at my sisters digibox there is;

1. A messages icon added to search/scan banner
2. There are new options for viewing in different aspect ratios, menus have changed to accomodate this.
3. You can select a second TV to be 4:3 while the main TV is widescreen.

It also switched off the RGB output for some reason. I had to go into menus and switch it back

The number you have given is the box version isn't it?


The EPG and operating system numbers have not changed, the software model number has.
Speculation is that it is an update to the MPEG2 chip microcode.

At this time the other features mentioned have only been added to standard digiboxes with PACE models being first inline. I expect SKY have issued the SKY+ PQ fix as it's a critical issue and will update the OS with the other features perhaps when they have been field tested on the other boxes.

Thanks mate,

Cant wait for

3. You can select a second TV to be 4:3 while the main TV is widescreen.

I'm always changing format from one room to another, and think this would be a handy feature.
