Thinking of replacing my Sky boxes with the Standard + Promo
I just got fibre installed last week (less than 26 hours after I made the call to Vodafone to get it installed I was up and going, but that is another story)
So that comes with 2 VodafoneTV boxes.
You could be watching on one TV but the second Box will count as a cocurrent connection meaning you could not also watch another stream on another device.
Is this correct?
It doesnt seem like it from the promo material I have seen.
It would be nice to watch something different on each setbox and then something different on a tablet/appletv
Secondly is the recordings, held in Vodafone Cloud meaning I could record on one device and watch on another?
Finally are the channels locked to Sky? Or will you be adding some other channels in time (that are not available on SkyTV)

A couple of folks had asked about error codes, we've now put together a complete list of error codes for both the set top box and the mobile app.

Mike is there a chance you can answer my questions above?
I have asked a few vodafone sales people the same question about how many streams can be watched at one time nd I have got several responses

Are you saying, if we got the two VTV box deal we cannot watch separate shows on separate boxes at the same time?
We have been waiting to get them installed for about two months now as we were given two boxes without wifi extenders and two ethernet cords that are about a meter long ( must be plugged into the modem to work so completely pointless if the modem is not next to your TV). Been very painful to deal with, getting mixed information consistently.

With 2 boxes you can watch different content at the same time.
Both boxes installed easily and full access to all services from both.
Lots of other issues that need to be resolved but hardware stability is not 1 of them.

Hows it going, just changed over from MySky to standard + and for a new product seems to be working pretty good for me, few small issues and questions.
Youtube, Three now, Iheart apps have been working flawlessly, but have had issues with netflix getting a black screen all of a sudden and sometimes freezing completely I.E cant exit out back to menu, and other time could exit out to menu but when selecting netflix app again it wouldnt load at all would just flicker and go back to start screen. The only way to fix has been turning box off and unplugging and once started back up works fine.
Another thing with netflix app is i dont seem to be able to get 4K playback, HDMI 2.0 plugged stright from VTV box into samsung UHD T.V, can still get 4K netflix if i use the app on the t.v connected through wifi. Connection speed on VTV app is usually around 60MBPS.
Pretty happy with so far, havent had any connection drops on either tvs and change over has been pretty painless.
