    Are the only Sky+ boxes available at the moment the silver Pace ones?

    Would quite like to get Sky+ but would rather have a choice of box.

    Anyone know if there are any plans for boxes by other manufacturers?

    Pace are indeed the only manufacturer of SKY+.

    My guess is that it's there own design based on the existing digibox and that would limit other manufacturers from entering the market unless they used the same reference design.

    I assume if SKY+ racks up some good sales figures Sony/Panasonic might get involved but they both have
    their own PVR plans and might not include SKY being
    an integral part.
