I have a HTPC, it's not used much now, so it's more becoming a OPenhab system.  But it's still there still connected to me 46" tv, along with a chromecast and a apple tv.

 

I tried yesterday to get sky go going on chrome and ie so watch some americas cup.  There was a message about flash (omg soo oooooold).  

 

I've also got ios devices.

 

But what's the best method for getting sky go to my telly?  Any ideas?

I use Fanpass on IOS with Chromecast.

 

 

 

I would have thought the same option for SkyGo would be easy also

No fanpass, they'd developed lately, and it's designed as a standalone so it has IOS apps, Apple TV apps etc.  Sky go, they deliberately (IMO) don't allow chromecast/airplay etc as that would cannibalise their decoder market.

Stupid question...if you can get to Skygo, then you must have a Sky subscription. Is the decoder not connected to that TV?

 Google are getting aggressive with disabling flash by default now

 

You need to browse to skygo, then click on the i in the url bar then set flash to always allow on this site

Actually i went through to the adobe page that got in the way for adding flash, and their menus and what was available in the current chrome version were quite different.  I'd wondered if google had killed it off entirely.

Chrome uses pepperflash which is built in to the browser, you just need to allow it to run on the site

I'm having the same trouble running skygo on google chrome but no luck. Tried enabling in all the places suggested and added it to the allow list but still no dice. Has anyone else had this problem and managed to fix it?

Im on Skygo right now with Chrome, it bought up saying it needed flash, clicked on the link and Chrome prompted to allow Flash, and its all running sweet.
