    Does anyone know where I can find a pdf download for the Amstrad DRX890 HD box user manual.

    Alternatively, would someone like to scan their manual to pdf and email it to me?

    Here is a link to various boxes.
    Click 'Further Information'.
    The guides should be the same for your box.
    I have just looked at the PDF for the Thomson box and it is just the same as the Amstrad DRX890 (I have one).

    There are major differences to the connectors on the back panel (Amstrad does not have s-video, VCR scart or component video outputs) but the operating instructions are identical.

    Have to say I wouldn't mind a softcopy of the manual for the actual Amstrad unit. Google isn't throwing up a copy yet & Amstrad or Sky don't seem to have this either, so it looks like a scanned copy is the best bet, when/if someone feels philanthropic enough to post one!

    They call it an "essential guide" not a manual.
    It's certainly not what I'd call a manual, and its content is far from essential, let alone useful.
