    Was wondering if you can plug in a normal Sky digibox into this ? Not a bad price, £150, only £50 cheaper than Sky+ but without the extra tenner subscription (only got the £18 package)

    The Humax can only record from it's internal digital tuner.
    You would need something like TIVO if you wanted to record the SKY digibox output coupled with some PVR functionality or perhaps a combined HD/DVD recorder from the likes of Panasonic.

    Just a quick question, I am looking to purchase but could do to know wether these units have noisy fans or hard drives. I have open cabinet on a Tosh 32zp18 and my X box drives me up the pole for noise.

    can anyone help?
