I wonder what happened to Sky's more 'open' beta testing program? Last year this was very active, and before the forum was closed they even implied that that group would be considered for future tests. There was a lot of positive feedback, and surely those tests helped resolve issues before wider deployments, so does anyone know why they didn't continue?

I smile when I think back to one post from a moderator in November last year, saying that the shared planner 'may just miss Christmas but will be ready for testing soon'. I'm sure when they posted, they didn't realise it may miss Christmas 2013!

The public beta was for the development of the "enhanced epg" once this was rolled out to everyone in a stable condition they shut down the public beta.

Sky have kept a small beta program going with a select few, mainly super users I believe. These have been testing the connected search for a while.

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.
Lol..........I can assure you the TiVo is not overly complicated at all.I have come from Virgin to Sky and had the TiVo.The TiVo is by far a better piece of kit,3 tuners,better Hd Pq,better sound etc,and I would willingly swap my Amstrad Sky stb for the TiVo if it was possible.

Why come to Sky if the Sky box is so crap compared to the Virgin TiVO?
