Fit larger disk to Sky+ by Mike Gasson
A couple of months ago came across an article about fitting a larger disk drive to a Sky+. It had a detailed description, complete with photos etc. as to how to do it. Now I can't find it on my laptop and my wife wants to get a Sky+ 160 instead of her 20gb. Can anyone point towards a (very)...

Sky+ HD functionality without subscription? by Tim Downie
How much functionality does a Sky+ HD box retain if you don't maintain Sky+ subscription? I'm not a Sky subscriber but curious about the offer in Tesco at the moment. Does it lose all recording capacity and just become a Freesat receiver or can you still record with it? Tim

Will Sky replace my old box for free by Cheddar
I've been with Sky for around 3-4 yrs paying for the complete package. Anyway my digibox is still going strong but frankly it's crap. It's very, very slow, any chance of Sky giving me a replacement box for nothing? Also could I get a deal if I switched to Sky+? Is this more expensive? I don't want...

Bloody digibox packing in again by R D S
My current digibox is going down the same road as the old one. Screen freeze, pops, clicks etc. Do these things only have an 18 month life span or am I unlucky. It gets switched off every night, has been repeatedly unplugged and is getting progressively worse daily. One more reason (were it...

Sky Magazine by Paul
The January 2005 Sky Magazine comes with a nice letter inviting you to "opt in" to continue receiving a copy before 14th Jan 05 , stating that the magazine is free. I seem to remember in times gone by it had a price on the front cover but was included (forced on you) as part of your...

HD: Great but.... by SteveL
For some reason I can't record the BBC HD demo channel. (and there's some specacular looking stuff on it) I'm not that bothered, but thin end of the wedge and all that, it's somewhat worrying that a channel can just disallow you recording it. What next? Before long they eliminate *all* recording?

switching subtitles on and off by Dave
It seems crazy that the sky remote does not have a shortcut button to switch subtitles on and off - I used to have NTL digital and one of the coloured buttons served this purpose. Some of the all-in-one replacement remotes are advertised as having a macro capability - does anyone know whether...

Many years ago I subscribed to Sky for a short while. I still have the equipment and viewing card and it's used to watch the free to view channels. Now, my family are nagging me to re-subscribe so I phone Sky to see if they had any 'taster' offers, however, after 90 minutes on the phone, they...

Some questions re subscribing to the most basic Sky Value Pack (£12.50) for one year if I may: If I subscribe, will the dish, receiver, LNB, etc be provided free of charge for me to keep as long as I like, irrespective of renewing the sub? Or do I need to subscribe to a more expensive pack for...
