Despite getting this R008.063.49.08P upgrade automatically on 30th October, I still see nothing in sky.com/skyguide for details of what's changed.

Any ideas anybody?

Hi there oldrocker,

 

In the software tab of the settings menu there is a software tab which will list what has been changed/added.

 

In this update the search has been enhanced and now allows customers to search by actor/genre etc. There may well be a few bug fixes but not 100% on that.

 

Cheers

Hi Ste192013,
Thanks for that - I had a look and it does say what you say.
However, that Search enhancement came with R008.063.49.04P and is documented on sky.com/skyguide under 1st October as "Our best ever Search".
The R008.063.49.08P of 30th October (consequent to a beta R008.063.49.06P) doesn't get a mention anywhere as far as I can see.
Maybe like you say it's only bug fixes - but surely this should be described/detailed somewhere?

Cheers

.06P & .08P have no new features over .04P they are just bug fixes an a code tidy up.

 

Hope that helps.

 

 

Fixes in R008.063.49.08P:
- Small change to the code.

Fixes in R008.063.49.06P:
- Small change to the software notification message.

 

Please note: If you send me a personal email using my website regarding a sky issue, you will not get a reply. Thank you.

Thanks Kei+M,
However, as we don't know what the updates are, it will be difficult to know what we are looking for Smiley Sad

Annie+UK did provide us with what look like some log notes, but to my mind "Small change to the code" and "Small change to the software notification message" doesn't get me much further in my quest to know what's changed...

Hi oldrocker, thanks for getting back to us.

 

To be fair as you've already noticed the only major changes worth discussing in the previous couple of updates are the enhanced search capabilities that you pointed out and an update that stops WiFi boxes going into standby when switching off the router on certain boxes.

 

Cheers,
