I'm sure this must have been asked before but I cannot find any info. I really fancy Sky+ but do not want to shell even more cash to Sky. I like the idea of the non Sky PVR's, but what I want to know is this:- Does a non Sky PVR, e.g. Pace twinview, allow you to record from Sky? Does it's EPG have all sky channels? Can it control sky? i.e. if two programs are on sky during the night, on different channels, can the PVR switch the channels to record both shows? Althought the Pace twin has two tuners, I assume they are terrestrial tuners? So you can record 2 terestrial shows or 1 terestrial and 1 sky but not 2 sky shows? If an independant PVR can control a sky box, how does it so this? Is it via one of those stick on IR senders? If so, how reliable are they? I would be interested to hear from anyone that used a stan-alone PVR and records a lot of Sky stuff just to see how they work. Thanks a lot.
