    Hi i've seen some messages on the RDR HXD870 but as i am fairly inept technically, can someone in very simple terms explain to me how i connect my Sony dvd recorder 870 to the Sky box? I dont have a RF lead in the room where my equipment is so all i want to do is use the 870 to record any Sky channel that i want, just like Sky+...is that possible? I presume this way i can use Guide+ to show me Sky listings for easy recording and programming.....:rolleyes:

    guide plus uses eurosport on sky for getting the listings , and if I understand correctly it needs it using a coax lead through the analogue tuner , and requires the guideplus IR sensor to talk to the box by placing the eye in front of the sky box sensor
    http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=654255 has the details

    as for connections , you can connect coax from the sky rf1 or rf2 output to the sony analogue input , and/or connect a scart lead from the tv rgb out on the sky box to the line 1 input of the sony 870

    so you can use a scart lead , a coax lead , or both
