Sky TV on Xbox?

6y, 8m agoPosted 6 years, 8 months ago
I have an xBox 360 and we have sky Tv downstairs. We have a wireless connection between the router and my xbox. However the sky tv i can get is either very poo quality or laggy. It states i need a better connection.
Now any advice on how to improve my connection would be very appreciated.
Do I need to get a better internet provider? (currently tiscali 2mb i think...?)
Should I switch to homeplugs? (If so what are they and how do they work?)
Any other suggestions.... thank you =)

never had a problem with the quality of the streaming through the 360. I get a better pic watching the football via sky player than I get on freeview.

i stopped watching it on xbox because it was so poor (picture quality) dont know how people actually subscribe in this way
#6
id say its your broadband rather than internal network.
#7
Never had a problem with it being laggy/bad quality, Using Vm 50mb

but as Dandoc2 says, Home Plugs is the only thing i can think of to improve the service

but i also do think 2mb is abit low.

If you can get cable i would suggest Virgin Media 10mb Service

If you actually want 20mb and not "Upto 20mb"

Then

£25ish a month from Virgin Media

I have Everything XL with virgin media and costs me £60ish a month

haaa, just found out i have a download speed of :
Download= 0.95Mb/s
Upload= 0.22Mb/s

This might be why i have the lag? haha =)

yea everywhere i see says up to, and with BT i would of been able to get 6Mb/s even though i'd of been paying for "up to 20mb/s" . Any provider that actually will be able to provide me 20mb or 15mb or even 10mb...?
#12
Bt/Talktalk can offer upto 20mb but you wont get it.

Only company i know that is good for dl speeds via phone line is

Be There / o2

If you live in a cable area and want a reliable speed then Vm

Here is my 50mb Speed (Peak times remember)

Download: 50.71Mb/s
Upload: 1.65Mb/s

I use to have problems with Virgin Media when i was on 10mb / 20mb packages at peak times but when i got 50mb i have always been above 50mb never been below it and had it over 2 months now

might sort out lag but wont make a bit of diff to picture quality

If you don't have a good enough connection for sky player it downgrades the picture quality.

Is any one having problem with Catch TV (On demand) on SKY XBOX 360? I can watch Live Tv but throws an error if I want to watch On Demand?
#16
leave it a while and try again.

its usally because of high amount of users trying to access it at the same time
#17
