    hi, has anyone replaced there sky + box with a sky hd box please.
    as im thinking of buying the sky hd box from ebay.

    is it just a like for like swap please? am i right in thinking i will have to call sky to pair the box with my card.

    i dont want to pay the extra monthly subscription fee for a hd box, will they try and charge me. and will i still be able to record if i dont want to pay the extra monthly fee???

    just a bit confused.

    cheers :)

    Yes you can do it....just make it clear when you pair the card that you do not want a HD sub.

    Some call-monkeys will insist you have to take the HD sub...in fact I got into an argument with one and she insisted I didnt tell her how to do her job:rotfl:I told her that she had better learn it properly then.;)

    The hd sub is to be able to view, and record, the hd transmissions.
