First of all many thanks to the people who have posted in other threads their experiences of Sky+ self-installation. Your advice was VERY valuable. I bought the Sky+ package on Friday night from our local Currys in Telford. It took over half an hour to complete the transaction because they couldn't believe that they were just allowed to sell you the package. They finally contacted Sky who pointed out that I was allowed to buy the package and walk out with it and arrange installation direct with them (snigger!). Saturday I put the new LNB up and installed a second run of CT100 cable. The new LNB could not have been easier, they come supplied already installed in a holder and just slip on to the existing arm! Sunday morning I tested both runs of cable on the new LNB. Sunday afternoon I put the Sky+ box in place and connected everything up. Two quick phone calls to Sky (one to pair my new digibox to my card and one to activate Sky+). and I was up and running. So, what do I think? 1) It's very clever and I now doubt that I will watch live TV again, I will just stack up all the sorts of programs I like to watch.<br />2) I think there is a slight softening of the picture on playback but I could be mistaken, I will do further investigation (I may have been watching something that was less than perfect).<br />3) As previously stated by other users there is a glitch on "scart control", turn it off and the box stops outputting RGB (I manually set my TV to RGB and it just ain't there).<br />4) I noticed one glitch in that I set up the box to record Dream Team at 8:00 (for one hour) and West Wing at 9:00 (for one hour) and started watching Dream Team at 8:30. When it hit 9:00 the recording of Dream Team went in to pause. I came out of watching it and went back in and it cleared the problem.<br />5) The digital audio output and s-video output both work very well.<br />6) Yes, the Scart output IS in a dumb place if you have a side exit Scart cable. Imagine me forcing in my IXOS Scart cable and two decent phonos!!! I think the two phono sockets will break first.<br />7) Apart from the occasional "tick tick" of the drive being accessed it is reasonably quiet (certainly quieter than my JVC video).<br />8) Live Pause is great but a pain if you forget you are in it and try to do something else, it quickly reminds you you are no longer watching live TV.<br />9) The box reset itself once last night (bummer, but my other boxes have done this before) but it didn't lose any programming!<br />10) It has to be said that although the programming is not perfect it does seem far better than the current release of digibox software. <br />£10 a month is still a rip off but the convenience is magic.
