With the abolition of the £10 monthly fee I am now interested in Sky plus. I don't know anything about the Sky plus hard drive and it's editing capabilities (If any). My main interest in the unit is not the EPG capabilities but the hard drive storage option. I would want to record to Sky+ then edit if this function is available and then transfer to DVD RAM or DVD-R I understand that Sky+ records the digital stream and as such no picture quality is lost. presumably then transfering the hard disc contents to a DVD-RAM disc at the maximum (xp) quality setting I would be getting a copy to RAM as good as if I had recorded it straight off a normal Sky reciever. Am I right with this assumption or not???? Thank's Malcom.
