Might be a silly question but here goes: Most of the things I want to record would come from a Sky TV source (i.e. sky sports/sky 1/movie channels/etc). Would it make more sense to use a normal (i.e. Not Sky Plus) Sky box and a seperate DVD player with HDD record function (such as Pana E85) to record to, or, Buy a normal DVD player (for upgrade sake) and get Sky + ... ? I'm not informed enough to know what the advantages of each option are (other than the obvious - i.e. Sky+ series function/etc), so any help would be much appreciated. Seems pointelss to spend on a DVD+HDD recorder that is only going to be recording Sky programs (except for maybe storing MP3s) when Sky+ has it all in one package.. Any views (i'm preparing to be flamed!!) Cheers in advance.. iCE.
