Re: Sky Live Glass Camera Launch

Please don't get me wrong but isn't Whatsapp a video call service, as is othe service suppliers? They advertise you can do any video call, no mention of Zoom

Sky Live Camera replaced after Tech Support took picture evidence and tried all troubleshooting.

 

I don't think it was working correctly from the start as the camera never panned or moved when tested in Zoom.

 

Fingers crossed for 2nd Camera

Does this mean I'll have to purchase camera number 2?

Re: Sky Live Glass Camera Launch & Technical Enquiries

Mine was replaced as a warranty/busted camera/swap out, you'll have to phone but be prepared to wait up to 40 minutes to get through.  It took 2 hours overall for tech support to go through troubleshooting as they remote on via your mobile and take pictures and guide you through.

 

I take it you have no Sky Live app's showing and Software is stuck on updating?  Is the red light on all the time?

WhatsApp is not on Glass: Zoom is the chosen partner for this feature (possibly because they over-expanded during COVID and need the business)

There's no particular incentive for Meta, Apple, Microsoft (all rather bigger than Sky, which realistically is a regional television distribution platform) or the owners of other hugely popular video call apps to cooperate with marketing Sky-brand hardware.

If it's working see how it goes.  If it keeps doing it contact Sky

Re: Sky live is loading...

I've had exactly this. I have to switch it off at the plug and then back on. I'm having to return it and they are sending another. On the call they said they'd never come across this problem but I've seen lots of people with it now

Re: Sky Live Glass Camera Launch & Technical Enquiries

My replacement has red lighted after 4 weeks - restarted multiple times it's dead.  Not a great product Sky! Just not reliable.

Re: Sky Live Glass Camera Launch & Technical Enquiries

Now fixed but it never had any error code:

 

Had to do this and then it updated the software!

 

  1. Use a SIM tool or paper clip to press the pinhole reset button on the bottom of your Sky Live device. Hold it for ten seconds.
  2. The front LED on Sky Live should flash red and orange for a few minutes.
  3. Once it stops flashing red, press Homeon your Sky remote to refresh your home screen. You should see the 'Ready to set up' tile.
  4. Select this tile and start the setup journey. See Setting up Sky Live for more info.

Re: Sky Live loading.

I have exactly the same thing all the time. It's annoying as I try to get a workout in before I go to work most mornings but I spend more time trying to get the camera to load. My glass is also wall mounted which makes it even more difficult to access anything.

 

let me know if you got a fix for it saying still loading. As I type this email it has been loading for the past 11mins guess it's time to unplug it all again. Sigh

Re: Grainy picture with Sky Live.

Ours is the same, very grainy picture. Went to try the new karaoke and it's awful.

Picture was clear when we first got it
