The Sky Red Button Thread (ALL NON "SAT 3PM" GAMES ARE ON RED BUTTON)

If you record it can you not rewind in game  and do your own replays ?

(Sounding all billy big b******x   !!! as ) can (on Sky Q) but I jumped past the Sky Plus / HD boxes so not familiar with their functions

 

The only reason I have it is I had to change my 20 yr old box and Q was all that was available ((Very good Tbf for anyone considering)

Hi, Bbsb. You probably can if you are recording while watching. I tried to do a pause and rewind on my hd box for recent away game  that I wasn't recording and a message came up saying something like function not available. 

I will try this evening, as I've set it to record (while I watching) 👍

You'll probably have to watch it in the recording on the planner rather than via the red button to be able to pause still

My lad,s at uni and has sky Go through his lap top. No obvious red button option with the sky go app but anyone know if he’ll be able to get it ?

It won’t work on the app on a laptop - only an iPad/tablet or phone. He’ll need to use the Sky Sports app rather than Sky Go - live sport can be viewed on here if you have access to Sky Go though.

Right. I think I am about to do what I wasn't going to do, and subscribe to Sky Sports through Virgin Media.

Do I have to get the HD option or the standard def?

I only want it for the month, so trying to keep the cost to a minimum.

Apologies if this has been answered already.

Yes, that’s correct.

Main thing is that it’s there to record, so I can watch it delayed, after I’ve put kids to bed

Yes you can definitely rewind. I’ve done it. Though I was watching it on playback so maybe it isn’t a function of watching live. 

Solution is to watch it on playback 2 seconds behind live time

I can rewind live on Q

can then either fast forward and catch up with live or continue to watch the game a little delayed

Red button games in standard def. (Or a bit worse!)

Was still not giving me the option to record. However I have just turned the sky box on and off at the wall and that has done the trick - now happily recording so can watch, pause and rewind for replays. So if anyone is still having a problem I recommend the age old solution of turning it off and on again! I’m guessing the problem may have been caused by channel 403 changing to HD this week, although that doesn’t explain why last night’s matches were OK.

Part way through the first half I suddenly lost the match and it switched to YouTube showing Kylie Minogue! I’ve nothing against her, but that’s not what I want to watch. Luckily I got the match back quickly. Did anyone else have a Kylie moment?

Anyone watching on red button in a pub anywhere? My local has shown all of the previous mid week games, but they are saying it's now been blocked for pubs?

I’ve called the wife. Talked her through it and she’s (hopefully) successfully recorded it. 

Its on there now, according to her. Unless she’s recorded Teen Mom or summat instead! 

Last time I asked my wife to record a game was 2008 when I got back home from wembley was to pissed off to watch but decided to watch it a few days later, when I went to the recording and it just said  "BRISTOL CITY FAILED" to record. I laughed and have never watched the game again.

Not on my Sky Q....standard def for me.

Were you watching live or from the recording? I did both - it was definitely in HD when watching it live, but looking back at the recording it was in SD.

Yes, from recording.  I was about 10 minutes delayed (kids bedtime), so watched from planned. 

I’d caught up with the h-t break, so should’ve gone ‘live’

Anyone sure that the Sheff Wed game will be on the Red Button? It's the only Chamionship game on this Sunday - and there's no sign of it yet in the Planner?

During the (awful) Rotherham game the commentator said the Wednesday match would be on the red button

Dave - I’m drowning in understanding some of the modern gizmos ...

I don’t use my app atm but I’ve just checked my q box and it’s definitely on there

Would it be as simple as the app team havnt done their bit / links.   Yet 

They definitely keep saying the games are available through your Sky App (Theres not a Sky App and a Sky Q app is there ?)

My other thought is why would they have the recording / red button link up now ? ( as you couldn’t record on your I pad / tablet -?) 

I would have assumed the link would only come to the app when it’s ready to use (at start of program) ?

( No actual knowledge mate just thoughts .....probably all b****x mind !)

I decided to sign up, to see this red button option.

These are my thoughts

Yes you can timer record the match see pictures below.

SO

I went to the TV guide on Sunday

approx 10:30am I pressed the goals extra option to tape the goal action at 1pm

When I did that, the option came up for recording the City match.

So then I plug the unit shown below into the DVD recorder and it worked.

I tried to use red button on both SKY sports 1 and 2 as the match was kicking off - nothing happened so assumed it wasn't available.  Half way through the second half I tried pressing red button from a different channel (106?) and got to see the action just as Wednesday were scoring the second goal. 

Wish I hadn't bothered.
