Hi Biggy3134, 

 

From the details posted you have an Amstrad DRX780 Sky+HD box, the good news is that your box has the software for Sky Anytime+ which is identified by the model number beginning with the letters SYSF.

 

We're not quite ready to enable the service on your box yet as we're still in the process of rolling the SYSF software down to all Amstrad DRX780 boxes, once this process is complete we'll enable the service for your box type.

 

If you register your details at www.sky.com/anytimeplus we'll e-mail you as soon as you can enable Sky Anytime+ on your box.

 

Please note that you do need to have Sky Broadband Unlimited or Sky Broadband Everyday Lite to access the Sky Anytime+ service.

Hi chump72, this is a Thomson box. These are not optimised for Anytime+.

Why do you need Sky broadband? You can use the service with broadband from any ISP.

Re: How do i find out what make and model my Sky+HD box is?

To find out which Sky+HD box you have and when it will be updated, press Services on your Sky Remote, then press 0 to highlight Settings. Press 3 to highlight System Details. Note down the version Number 2nd line from the top of the screen. 
 

  • If you have a version beginning with 4F31, then you have an Amstrad DRX890 orDRX895. You should already have the new Sky Guide. 
     
  • If you have a version beginning with 4F30, then you have a Amstrad DRX780. You will receive the new Sky Guide in the next few weeks. 
     
  • If you have a version beginning with 9730, then you have a Samsung. Subject to final testing, you will receive the new Sky Guide by the end of November. 
     
  • If you have a version beginning with 9F30, then you have a Pace. Subject to final testing, you will receive the new Sky Guide by the end of November. 
     
  • If you have a version beginning with 4E30, then you have a Thomson. Unfortunately, we are not updating this box with the new Sky Guide. Please call one of our agents on 08442 411 389 who will be able to advise you on what options are available.
