    Hi

    I'm looking to replace a faulty Amstrad HD Box with a DXR890 £118 APPROX @ Amazon. Is this a decent PVR?

    What is your situation here ?

    It doesnt make sense that your buying a new Sky box from Amazon !

    The PVR features dont work without an active sky subscription , and if you have an active sky subscription and the box is faulty , you will get a new DXR890 box for free if you ring them. I did !

    It, and the version with a larger capacity hard drive, is the only current Sky PVR, and therefore must be decent.
    If you're a Sky subscriber and want one then the way to get it is to ask Sky to give it to you.

    I got one from Sky for £15 delivery and bought one from eBay for £20.
    Loads of DRX890 on eBay for £20-£40 so I would not consider the one from Amazon @£118

    Thanks guys for the comments. I will e-mail Sky and ask if a replacement can be sent and see what they say.

    Cheers
