Sky Compatible IRS Systems Sky record pause rewind is now the standard offering from Sky and as such most residents and landlords are choosing to upgrade to this specification as a minimum. The main difference between a Sky and Sky only IRS system is that a Sky system provides 2 consumer cables into every dwelling instead of one and a 4 node TV Face Plate. It is usually quite easy for a resident to identify whether they have a Sky or a Sky system by looking at the TV outlet within their premises if it has 3 nodes on the face plate including 1 Sat node then the system will probably not be able to provide Sky services. If you would like to upgrade an existing system to Sky please refer to page 10.
