When Will Sky+ Boxes Get The New EPG ?

Based on how some Thomson HD boxes struggle with it any Sky + box will probably spontaneously combust if they try to download this EPG.

Right at the start Sky were planning some Sky + boxes to get it but tests apparently found they did not have the power to handle it.

Does anyone know if or when Sky+ boxes will get the new EPG ?
Apologisations if it's been ask a brazilian times before.

Mucho grassy arse.

There are no plans to roll out the new EPG/OS to any standard definition STB's.

The only ones capable of running it from what I am told are the Pace PVR 3 units. NO other SD STB's (Sky+ or otherwise) have processing power capable of handling it.

Therefore (in order to avoid problems with box exchanges etc) the simplest solution is to just not run the new system at all on SD boxes

Shame, as my multiroom box is a Pace PVR3.
Faster EPG, Ffwd,Rwd etc than my Pace HD box.
Though the new EPG on my HD box does feel faster than the old one.
