I understand when you subcribe to Sky you don't get a choice in what manufacturers box you receive, is this correct?. How can you go about buying one independently (non subsidised I suppose) can you still get Sky to install it and supply the the dish?, or will you have to get a third party installer to do it for you?. If Sky don't install or supply your equipment can you still recieve their channel packages?. Roughly how much are we talking to go independent?. Is it worth it?. What Sky Digi boxes are the best and worst. I've heard Amstrad are one to avoid. I'm sorry if I sound niave, I'm new to Digital TV, as you might have guessed.
