    hi all

    my dad's sky digibox just died

    he's phoned sky and they will charge £60 for a callout to fix the box but if they can't they'll replace it with a refurbished box but only give a 90 day warranty

    where's the best/cheapest place for him to buy a new box?

    sky wanted £220 for a brand new unit

    he doesn't really want the hassle of sky+ as the 2nd cable would have to be run down the cavity

    cheers

    neil

    I've said it before but it's about time SKY offered current subscribers new digiboxes at cost, it's a disgrace that they are selling a new hardware at that inflated price.

    Panasonic TU-DSB50 for £159.99 at www.skytvrepairs.com
