FO: Amstrad DRX100 Digibox by Steven Elliott
I have for offer, one Amstrad DRX100 Digibox, in good condition, and in excellent working order. Unfortunately it doesn't come with a manual or remote control, just the digibox. This was my second box, and is no longer required. 2 Photos available: http://www33.brinkster.com/photopage/digibox.jpg

Ordered HD in May, but in light of the then impending fiasco decided to cancel rather than have a load of hassle. No problem, 299 refunded quickly and that was that and apart from a phone call received to book installation (quickly resolved) heard no more. Strange thing though, the next DD was...

New Sky+ box by Sanj
My original Sky+ box has finally given up. I've had it since 2002. Can anyone recommend an on-line dealer (not Ebay), where I can buy one from. Sky have quoted me 99, is that a good deal?

I recorded a programme on my Sky+ last night, when I went to view the programme I was requested to enter my PIN, which was a surprise to me as I've never set up any parental control functions. When I went to the parental control settings I was again asked for my PIN. As I've never used the function...
