    Please can anyone tell me if I use a DVD HDD recorder with sky, how do I set it to record? Does it mean I have to set the DVD recorder like my old video to tell it when to record from sky and then also set the sky digibox to tell it when to come on and what programme to broadcast? I was under the impression that you could control the digibox from the DVD Recorder or vice versa and therefore not have to piddle about with two different controls.

    Hmmm........ thanks for help

    Hi

    I haven't bought one yet.I am considering the Pioneer 530hs or perhaps its replacement. Alternatively I might consider another one if the programming facility I referred to is available on it.

    HDD Recorders with guide plus will control compatable digi boxes , ie My JVC MH 300 allows the recording and control of the Sky Plus Box (pace) from its internal Guide Plus epg.
