wish they would hurry up and get the box into widescreen
TomAckroyd: Prime is WS on TCL. Still shocking quality though. Bit-rate comparing by flicking between Boston Legal (TV3) Dancing with the Stars (TV1) and a Jimmy Barnes concert (Prime) last night was a lesson in how important the non-SKY FTAs are to SKY. [EDIT: Or is it that TCL still haven't upgraded the Prime feed?]
I aim to misbehave.
You may not be aware that Branded FreeView Decoders can't play Prime either.
Dingbatt: Yes thanks I was aware. Its just that the freeview boxes tend to be locked into the freeview channels only. So if Sky saw fit to send their prime signal un-encrypted, then a quick update scan of the correct transponder freq by non-freeview STBs would allow it to be picked up. Sky's EPG is unencrypted so they must have the capablilty for other unencrypted streams as well (mustn't they?).
