    Is it possible to record/save my recordings on my Sky+ box to PC/Laptop/external hard drive etc? I don't want to go via VCR.
    thanks

    Yes - you'll need a capture card with s-video input (better than composite). Almost any of the Hauppauge cards will do it, but plenty of others.

    Better still get the Sweetspot card from Pluggedin-tv. Takes the RGB output from the Sky box and captures via any suitable capture software. Quality is way better than s-video. See www.pluggedin.tv
