My job requires me to work in two places, both within the UK, and so I have to divide my time between two homes. One has Sky, but at the other (which is in a block of flats) it's not possible. I'm considering getting Sky+ for the home which has a dish. But I'd like to watch Sky+ programmes in both places. OK - I could copy stuff onto recordable DVD (I've got a Panasonic DMR-E50) but: a) There would be a drop in quality in any transfer from digital to analogue, and one of the selling points of Sky+ to me is that the recorded quality is effectively very similar to broadcast b) Even if I accepted a big drop in quality to copy say 6 hours of programmes onto a DVD overnight that would still be only a small fraction of what would be on the Sky+ (even more so if I went for higher quality and copied only 1 or 2 hours per DVD). So - could the following work? I've been intrigued by how easy it seems (judging by various websites, at least) to swap the Sky+ hard drive for a larger one. (Certainly it seems a lot easier than it has been for my Tivos, which I've done). So would it work to have one regular Sky+ in my home with the dish, a "dumb" Sky+ (ie no dish, no ability to record, no sub) in the flat, three or four hard drives, and simply swap them around every time I travel? Has anyone tried this? In particular, would one Sky+ play back programmes recorded on another, especially if the playback Sky+ was not able to record or communicate with Sky? And will Sky+ lose all its series links the moment I change the hard disk (and if so is it a long or a short task to add back in say 30 or 40 of them)? Comments or advice please.
