For the uninitiated, Sky Q is Sky's next-gen set-top box.It's a leap into a telly world increasingly populated by streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, and mobile devices and tablets.This may be acceptable for standard def PVRs like Sky , but hi-def video has a voracious appetite for drive space.You need only schedule a handful of docs or films for it to disappear.
When Sky HD started nearly three years ago, there were only eight hi-def channels to choose from (including BBC HD). But in that time the capacity of the internal hard disk drive that the Sky HD box uses as a recording medium has not been increased proportionately.
If your Sky box is not responding to any action you might need to reset all box settings.
You should only use this procedure as a last resort, as it will delete all your recorded programmes and recording requests.
Until then, you can find out more info in our feature. And from what we've seen so far, it's a lot trimmer than Virgin Media's forthcoming V6 box.
Its finish is matte rather than gloss, so doesn't attract too many fingerprints. It glows blue when the box is on (with the light swirling around the logo), and red when you're recording something.
