    Hi, I'm thinking of buying a Sky+, I live abroad and am not sure as to which models are recomended. I would consider a used unit, are any of the less recent models worth taking into consideration?
    I also need a DVDR. Is it better to have the hard drive on the satellite receiver or on the DVDR?
    Thanks.

    Most people would say on the satellite receiver, certainly if you mostly timeshift as Sky+ is brilliant at that. Of course the best is on both but obviously that will cost more.

    In my opinion, the hard disk in the Sky+ is the best option. As long as you have power and a dish connected, you'll get a recording. There's less to go wrong.

    Thanks guys, so thats deceided then, hard disc on the Sky receiver.
    So now considering that I`ve got to buy a model, the package isn't an option because I can't plug a phone in, which make would you go for? New or used?

    If you're going to buy a Sky+ receiver, there's only two options - Pace or Amstrad. The Amstrad boxes are fairly new, and seem to have more than their fair share of teething troubles.
