I am not too sure, but I think you will need Wi-Fi for the mini box to work. I am a bit disappointed with Q box in as much that I can't record a future program via my phone anymore like when I am away. Also, the remind me button on the HD box is not on the Q box. I do like the voice control feature though.

I log-in to my Sky account via my phone, then go to TV Guide. After searching for the channel and program I want, click on it and a box appears to record.

The Sky HD boxes all worked independently of each other with separate satellite feeds and their own planner. With Q, the main Q box is designed to feed content and signal to the mini boxes via the home WiFi and the mesh created by the Q system.  If you have no internet connection and mesh the mini will not work. 3G/4G mobile internet connections are no good for Q either.  

Hope that helps.

im not worried about internet while away and i was thinking of using the router in the caravan solely as a way point to link the boxes so to speak,, next week im buying a wideband lnb for my caravan dish [a dish i bought not a built on one] so gonna try the setup before we go anywhere to see if it works if not then i know,, if it does wala

i am aware the  mini and q boxes shouldnt need the main router really as ive turned mine off few times over the year as was decorating etc and the 2  main boxes never cut off apart from the no internet messages but the tv and recording side always stayed on

Sky q does work with 3G/4g hotspots no problem.

Yes it works perfectly as long as you have a wide band lnb. I just pair my sky q box with my iPhone then connect the mini box 👍

Hi Robbie, you need an active internet connection to pair your mini box to the q box. Once it’s paired once and active you can turn the internet off.  

 

Your sky q box does not need to be connected to the internet if used on its own, all this means is you won’t have catch up and the movies etc.

 

hope this helps
