    Hi,

    I'm getting sky installed on Saturday as a short term measure before getting Sky Plus in a months time.

    Assuming the installer has different models of digibox in his van, should I ask nicely for a particular type? I assume is should avoid being fobbed off with a reconditioned box but as for new boxes, which is best? Is there a latest version that I should have?

    Your order should sheet should specify which box the installer provides, I think this is purely down to the stock levels at the main warehouse.

    Unless you order SKY via an advert that specified a refurbished box (There were some in the local press 6 months or so ago, no idea if they still do it) then you are entitled to a brand new digibox. Can't help with the specific model numbers etc of the latest generation of boxes nor could I say which is best although there is far less of a difference between them then there used to be.

    I'll take a stab and no doubt others can correct me:)

    I think

    BTW the Sky contract says they will supply whatever model they choose, or words to that effect.
