    Any thoughts on the best receiver to get (I'll get one off ebay) for £50-£100?
    Apart from the obvious, are there any extras (connectors/slots/menu speed etc) that you've seen & like or wish you had?
    Cheers

    SKY digiboxes are built to or less the same spec, any deviation is the manufacturers own "value added" feature.
    So they all have two scarts, two RF and twin phonos.

    If s-video is important to you then you might look for a Grundig model (not all have that connection), if you want an optical output then a Sony would be the choice.
    Panasonic have a reputation for fast menu navigation but as long as you get a recent model from any manufacturer they all should be more than user friendly.

    Avoid the PACE 2200 (very very slow menus) and the Amstrad DRX100 and the PACE minibox which has a much lower spec since it was designed mainly for a second subscription box.
