    Are there any black Sky+ boxes available?
    I have a standard Amstrad one but it's the only non-black bit of AV kit on my rack and it stands out like a sore thumb!

    Thanks

    I'm all for black too. Thought I saw a pic of a black Sky+ box online once, maybe a prototype or something. Can't find it now though. Whoever invented silver was a real nutcase.

    brummies and manchunians......... they had the Sharp 37" Designer LCD exclusively (along with harrods) when it came out.......... but proof you can have one sprayed..... Or just go to your local signmaker and get a small bit of black vinyl.............. and cover the front and top panels.....
