Can anyone advise when Voda customers with Sky package will get upgraded to new on demand system? Heard nothing when everyone else seems to be getting theirs sorted.
I have MY Sky HDI box.

I'm billed through Vodafone and system was upgraded overnight last night. Got an email a week before, and then yesterday afternoon to confirm when it would happen. Missed the courier delivery for the wireless dongle thing on Monday so picking it up tomorrow.

If one happens to be away on holiday and the power switched off at home, while this upgrade is supposed to happen, does that means no update is ever received?

Thanks everyone. Does Voda contact you before or does Sky?
Cheers John

If you have Sky (basic and Sports) through the Vodafone T Box, do you still get the updates or not?

I ordered a sky wireless connection device on Monday (Free). The next day I received the device and also got an email from Sky stating that my software will be updated next week. I am also a Vodafone customer.

It will happen, they change the bit set on your card so the box looks for the new os, eventually.
