Thomson Sky HD boxes with model number 4E3004 are about 6 hours away from getting that new EPG.
Night night.

Woo - me too. My fave improvement being able to look at the info for a programme on later, while watching live telly (ie: 'i' button doesn't show the current programme).

Looks good but then had to leave for work! Will set up ITV HD when I get home.

Yeah looks very swish...

The actual channel number you type in looks small though.

Like the stacked recorded programs in the planner...and finally last channel.

Added ITVHD as well.

Seriously ITV's SD from last night compared to the HD was shocking. I have a motorised dish in my games room with a HD receiver and the picture difference was like night and day.

Sky's SD feed of an event being simulcast in HD is 100% better.

One thing to note about stacks. If you have a failed recording it won't show up till you open the stack.

Something odd on Sky Anytime today. Can someone else check to see if it is my box?

How Things are Made - pressed record to copy from anytime to planner. Prog came up as 223 mins long. Skipped through the HTAM prog and then asked to enter viewing PIN. Rest of space was taken up with Jumper, the movie. That is not listed in Sky Anytime so not sure how this has happened?

Can someone else try this and see if this can be replicated? I have a Samsung HD box btw.

It's happened before. I remember people copying one of the Bond movies to their planner, and ending up with a 4 1/2 hour recording of two Bond films.

I got a Thomson box but it hasn't updated yet. Any chance of forcing the update ?

There are a few different ones...

You have to have one of the specific one's that it's been rolled out to.

The model versions that have been done so far are 4E300E and 4E3004

Mine got done Wednesday morning and although I haven't fiddled about with it (I rarely watch TV) the missus doesn't like it so it's all good here.

Mine was done Wednesday morning.

I'm not overly fussed, I prefer the series link option when you record a show, but did prefer the full screen list of channels over the little list you now get.

If you switch off the mini tv you get the full screen list again...

You can also highlight native HD material as well which is useful.

Ah I only got 4E3006. Might be rolled out at a later date then. According to DS, it'll be next in line for next week. Not too worried as Liverpool will be on Sky HD for the first match.

I've posted this in the iPhone/Touch apps thread but this could do with a post in here too:

You can now get a version of Sky+ Remote Record for the Touch/iPhone and its a freebie.

Sky+

Sky+
It's also crap. Get Tioti TV+ instead, it's much better.
