    I can't find this with a search so apologies if I am repeating. From what I understand of Sky+ you can

    Watch one channel / Record 1 other
    Play a recording / Record 2 others

    But what I would really like is the ability to play out 2 different channels or recordings at the same time. i.e a different channel out of each SCART socket so that you can have a different channel piped to a different room without another box/subscription.

    Also, a PAP/PIP type option would be great too!

    Anyone know if this is on the cards for Sky+ in the future?

    Current boxes only have one decoder so only one output at a time is possible.

    I don't have a crystal ball but I think it highly unlikey that they will ever produce one of these boxes They are in the business to make money and they couldn't justify the development costs against the potential sales. It would cost a lot more than the current box and would require its own operating system.

    iirc the second scart only outputs a composite signal :thumbsdow . I don't use it , so can't be sure .
    I suppose you could hook the vcr up to another tv and use the copy option to watch it ? Don't know if that would wipe it off the planner tho
