Yes, when it's ready the box will just restart.

Hi,

Is that not the option that allows the ipad to talk to the sky box?

The rollout will be phased, hence your box may not have updated yet. Patience is key.

Give it time. I reckon it'll be up and running some time around mid-morning or lunchtime

I was half asleep in posting this morning...got my days mixed up. 2am Tuesday morning is what I meant. Please don't come here saying your box hasn't updated, it's being done in batches and only DRX890/5, with the 595 release at a later date. So if you have those boxes, you will get the new software eventually.

4oD is independent of forthcoming update.

But it doesn't state which day / month / year this is

But, of course, the OP didn't specify that either

I personally don't think we'll be seeing it as soon as some think. Surely Sky would be promoting it massively like they do everything else.

Exactly what I said previously, there WILL be a massive ad campaign around this when its launched.

Unfortunately not. No rumblings about an impending update for those boxes.

As we already knew (no shared planner despite the help screen photo's)

http://forums.digitalspy.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1808621

The DRX890/5 models will start receiving updates from today.

DRX595 (non PVR box) will also be updated shortly

There is no information regarding Pace / Samsung or Amstrad DRX870 boxes either.

Features known to be included,
1.Eco mode
2.Cosmetic changes
3.Dolby Digital over HDMI

It didn't happen.

But

It will happen.

Sky are busy with new Search ATM

but must be having some major problems with shared planner bugs.

Sky are bit by bit erasing the Virgin TiVo intelligent advantage and making TiVo seem overly complicated, which it is, at the same time.

It is Sky tradition to leak info and sit back and have us talk about what will eventually come.

If anything changes I'm sure someone will post the details in these forums 1st.
