    Sky Go requires silverlight to work. I've installed Silverlight 3(by removing installercheck) but it still show up saying I need to install/update Silverlight. Is there anyway to get Sky Go to work?

    I've also tried Flip4Mac too.

    My guess is that you're not going to be able to get it to work.

    Things like Sky Go, TWC's web app, and Netflix only work with the official Silverlight plug-in, unfortunately. This is a minor source of frustration for me since I'd like to to be able use my upstairs Linux HTPC for everything I can do downstairs with the cable box and PS3. Alas, not quite. C'est la vie.

    All that said, I would be very interested to hear of any solutions to this problem.

    Yeah, but if it was Flash, it would work! Maybe not terribly well, but it would work. :p

    Oh, the irony.
