I just had a phone call from Sky today. They said we have to give up our old mpeg decoder soon because Sky is shutting down that service within the next two months. 

 

I know there are some here who will be very happy about this so I thought I would pass on the good news.

The Signal isn't being cut off, but they are planning to upgrade the compression algorithm

 

Older decoders will not be able to decode the newer signal

 

The new decoders are hobbled mysky boxes, that can be fully easily unlocked by Sky OTA,  expect a more constant stream of upselling...
