    Is there anyway to transfer movies/programmes etc from the sky+ box onto your pc...I use my laptop a lot when travelling and would love to have something else to watch other than DVDs. Dunno is its possible or even legal?

    If you do a search, you'll find that this has been asked a few times.

    It is possible if your laptop has a TV card or if you use an external TV card. You can connect the card to the sky box, play the programme on the sky box and record it on the laptop.
