Hello. Have just found this forum and it certainly seems very informative. I have seen various threads which are related to my question but I am still a bit unsure so here goes. I am thinking of purchasing a Sony RDR-HXD870 DVD recorder and wish to timer record from Sky in a similar way to Sky+ works. (I can only get regular Sky digital and not Sky+ since my block of flats is not dual-wired for Sky+). I notice that my Sky box (a Thomson DSI4214C) is not included in the list of boxes that are compatible with guideplus. There was another thread where someone was having trouble getting the channel to change using this box but the thread didn't seem to reach a definitive answer. I will also be using it with a Philips 32PFL7562D TV. Will I be able to get it to work? I do have an analogue aerial connection as well as the Sky dish - this appears to help with the downloading of the program guide, having read AJBek's thread 'How to set up guideplus with a sky box'. Thanks for your help. Stuart.
