Updating sky hd firmware
Sky Q is one of our favourite home entertainment services of 2017, and it’s set to get even better with some massive Sky Q updates.Here’s all you need to know about the new features coming to Sky Q in 2017, including how to get the current update.The new ‘Family’ setting on parental controls will hide all adult channels, pin protect pre-watershed playback of on-demand content and movies with a 12 rating or above, as well as Sky Store purchases.Finally, Eco Mode has been extended by 50 per cent, which means your Sky HD box will now switch off between 2.45am to 5.45am to save energy.For starters, the Planner is being improved to make it ‘more intuitive’, with recent recordings and downloads having now been moved to the top of the first page.Upcoming recordings will appear in a brand new ‘Scheduled’ page.This has bricked the unit and it will now only come on momentarily and then goes into standby.Is there a way to use the RS232 connection in order to reflash the firmware with the correct file???
Ours should update overnight but for the past few days it’s still updating at 9am- today I’ve sat for an hour whilst it flips between “step 1 of 2” and “step 2 of 2”.I'm currently watching Le Tour on Eurosport HD and the scenery looks spectacular. We've had it for less than a year and already sent it back to the supplier and had it replaced due to loss of channels.Whether the new Sky homepage and program guide will resemble the vertical menu structure that Sky has introduced for Sky Q boxes remain to be seen.Will bring you full details on the update as soon as we get them.
Sky has announced a new update for its Sky HD boxes that will improve the service’s electronic programming guide (EPG).
