Used Sky+ connection

If I buy a used Sky+ unit, will Sky let me use it without paying the £10 a month subscription?

I live in a flat and can't have a second LNB, but the recording and DD5.1 would be useful.

None of the recording features will work without paying the £10 a month fee and you don't need two LNB's, a single LNB with two independent outputs will do.

Without the subscription you will have a fast digibox with an optical DD5.1 capable audio output and s-video connection.
The software however does not support Autoview and want repsond to VCR's that use RF satellite control.
