I have disabled my Anytime recordings a 95% is movies (which we don't have) but it seems the recording is still happening. I am up during the night and the machine is running through the night, I assume its Anytime.

Can I either pull the plug or the card to stop it ? will this ause any problems ?

If Anytime is switched off in the menu then it's off, the SKY box may occasionally wake up (without coming out of standby) when receiving minor amounts of EPG or other data over night but that's it apart from scheduled recordings of course.

So if the box is in standby then the drive isn't spinning and the fan should not be on, if that is not the case then do a reboot and see how it works after that. Yes you can pull the plug overnight if you wish but you miss any data sent to the box plus the powering up cycle isn't exactly fast.
