    It depends how you go about replacing your Pace. If you have it gamaged then SKY may replace cheaper than getting a new box, especially if you say you want to cancel any subscription you may have. Another way is to buy the sony and get your sky card paired to it. Look at loot etc and see if anyone is selling one on cheap. Look in wotsat mag but you are looking at £399 if you go the dealer route. Why not a panasonic, cheaper and just as good.
    Let me know if you want more info.

    You could also try eBay. I have just obtained a nice new sliver Panasonic box for £150 to replace my old Pace (1998 model).

    I believe the silver Panasonics (DSB30 and DSB31) are faster than the Sony box at accessing the EPG, digital text, Open etc. but of course don't have an optical out like the Sony.
