Anytime+ available on these set top boxes.

[ Edited ]

Hi.

 

I would like to compile a complete list of set top boxes and indicate if anytime+ is available for those boxes. There are several posts which are just repeating information so to make things easier, I will edit this, the top post with the informaton i receive.

 

Please send me a private message with the make of your stb, the model number, version number, OS and EPG versions. These are found by pressing services, right, down, then select system details.

 

for info:

"We are gradually rolling out Sky Anytime + to all Sky + HD Boxes and can confirm that 75% of the country will be up and running by the end of November 2010 and the rest of the country by the end of January 2011"
found on digital Spy at this post 

And

Yes, Thomson boxes will be able to receive Anytime+ from next year

found on Twitter under skyhd now im happer :smileyhappy: 

  

2010-11-01 13:20 -even happier as this has been confirmed by an independant source. now I know its comming to Thomson boxes, its just a matter of when.

 

2010-11-01 20:15 - Just received confirmation from Sky by email that Thomson boxes will be compatable.

 

2010-11-01 20:30 - At this time, there are over 220 people viewing this post. Please please send me information on your set top box. With out that, this list can not be relied on to be accurate.

 

2010-11-06 14:20 - In an attempt to verify what I have been hearing, I went to West Quay, Southampton. Talking to the sales man at the Sky booth, he was very insistant that all Sky HD boxes were activated and all that was required was a cable in the back. Could not confirm as his services were not from a live satellite feed. he pointed me to the M-The Mall (Marlands). The sales man at M-The mall, when queried pointed me to a sales brosure, and stated it just has HD, recording and 3d. When I asked if he had a live feed to his set top box and if it had anytime+, he said whats that ? I asked if  I could have a look at the box,  he said yes showed me the stb, said there is a live feed but he didnt know where the remote control was.

 

2010-11-26 13:10 - Hum. With all the issues with the Amstrad boxes, would it be valid to worry about the potential of the Thomson boxes ? Im going to give a brave assumption here. Malcolm has announced that Samsung boxes are going to be the next to receive the update here. This suggests that although some boxes have the update, it will not be available for your use until the roll out plan covers your box type. It appears that Amstrad were first ( Because Sky own ? Amstrad - who knows ), to be followed by Samsung. If anybody has any other type of box which they are able to use anytime on, please let me know.

 

2010-11-30 14:00 - Samsung boxes have anytime+. you can read Malcolms post here and confirmation it works on page 3 of this thread. Please Mr Sky, Thomson boxes next  :smileywink:

 

Cheers

Pete

 

Anytime available on these.

Re: Anytime+ available on these set top boxes.

Hi,

 

So the DRX780 has no known timescale, I see some folks saying it is not compatible...

 

Sadly its the version I have and it just infuriates me that I pay Sky over £800 a year and someone joining Sky now and paying much less can get ANYTIME+...no doubt I will be the last as I was when the last HD electronic programme guide was done...

Re: Anytime+ available on these set top boxes.

My Pace Box now says:

 

Model Number: SYSF26.53

Version Number: 9F3002

Operating System Version: SYSF26.53

EPG Software Version: 39.0.4.8

Manufacturer: Pace

 

The box is telling me to go to sky.com/anytimeplus, however when I do the website says I don't have a compatible box.  Sky say I don't have a compatible box in my portfolio despite having HD for nearly 3 years and them replacing my Thomson HD Box 2 months ago for this Pace one.

Re: Anytime+ available on these set top boxes.

Great thread - just what we need to find out when boxes may be updated from..... It's a shame that my Thomson is likely to be last on the list as I'm really looking forward to the service, but I can be patient, after all, it appears to be bulletproof in terms of reliability!

Re: Anytime+ available on these set top boxes.

 

I'm starting to worry, its gone very quiet on this topic!

 

Does this mean that everybody has got the new EPG and Anytime+?

 

Has anyone recieved the EPG for the Amstrad 780?

 

Does the Sky box need to be rebooted to make a new EPG visable or is it instant?

 

Will Anytime+ erase what I have already saved to my planner?

 

Any help would be nice.

 

thanks.

Re: Anytime+ available on these set top boxes.

My Samsung STB got the Software update today (23/11) at around midday. It froze box and clobbered something I was recording at the time. Thought these updates usually rolled out during the night.

 

Details are now:

 

Model Number    SYSF26.59.01

Version Number  973005

Operating System Version   SYSF26.59.01

EPG Software Version    40.0.14.1

 

I installed a wired connection to Sky (BB unlimited) router OK, Network info was valid and Download Tab appeared on Planner

Unable to activate Anytime+ on my account with the common/usual message and invitation to supply email address for notification when ready.
