    Couple of questions for you guys from some one who spends to much time in front of a tv or a pc...

    I can find very little on getting sky + on the net and was curious as to how much it run to? apart from what appears to be an additional "rip off" of ten of my hard earned quid a month:mad:

    Is there an additional install charge? As I allready have sky it can't be rocket science to do a simple swap and set the new remote to my existing tele. Besides which I can do without the hassle of having a to take a day off work only for them to turn at 17:00 hours.

    How prone are these new boxs to freezing, needing rebooting or generally going pear shaped?.

    Hope some one out there can help or point me in the direction of a web site that can as sky's is less than usefull unless you wanna spend more money through them..

    :) :) :)

    A few people have bought SKY+ cheaper than the retail price but only because they were liquidation stock or they knew a bloke in the trade. The price is £299-£300 where ever you go, not seen any online sites selling them but then again I haven't been looking.

    When you buy SKY+ it includes a QUAD LNB, to record a seperate channel SKY+ needs two independent LNB inputs.
    SKY charge £50 to install the LNB and the extra cable, if you are capable of doing this yourself then that is £50 saved minus the cost of any cable you need to aquire.

    After a few hiccups with dodgy code and noisy hard drives SKY+ is proving to be very reliable. I had my first failed recording for two months this week but that was due to SKY's transmissions and not the SKY+ itself.

    Thanks,

    Think I'll wait for it to drop down to the two ton mark or see if there are any special offers on.
