    Question Are "new" Sky+ HD boxes still available?

    Hi, I understand that Sky is keen for new customers to move from HD to Q, but we are unlikely to get Q as there is a huge copse of trees outside out house, and the sky engineer who came round today says an option is to stick with HD. However, we are not "new" customers. We have been with Sky...

    SKY+ HD Box For FTA

    Hi. I have a SKY+ HD box which I've been using for FTA. I took the 500GB HDD out of it a while back, because I assumed since recording is disabled without a subscription, it serves no purpose. Ever since I done so, the box performs really sluggish. I attempted to use a 40GB 2.5" HDD thinking...

    Sky+ Box looks like it is RIP

    We have been having problems with signal dropouts for around two weeks. I rang Sky a while back and they said to keep an eye on it and monitor the situation. This morning it became completely unwatchable. I rang them back and a guy on the phone went through a Sky+ Rebuild. Now it is worse than...

    Save my sanity - Sky+ network fail

    Started downloading a film today on Sky Cinema, noticed it was moving horribly slowly. I was only downloading the SD version so it shouldn't have taken long, even on my miserable 5mbps connection. Xbox was showing a healthy (for me) 4.1 download speed so I turned the sky box off and on, now I...

    Replacement for Sky+ Box
