Hi
I recently got rid of my sky tv. I have reverted to freesat, is there any way that I can get my sky box to record.
I know sky will charge me a nice little sum to allow this but is there another way.
Thanks

You can't ask on here for illegal hacks for things like this just so you know, it's against the forum rules.

can you just buy a PVR and record the same as anyone else with satellite tv
Yep can do was just wondering if there was a way of making use of the sky box.
Was not looking looking for anything dodgy just seemed a waste buying a new recorder when I have a perfectly usable sky box

I cancelled the sky tv so have reverted to freesat which means the box will not record.
If I pay sky £10 a mnth they will enable the recording feature.

This is why I opted not to go for Freesat from Sky, and got myself a dual tuner Freesat HD PVR.

Cost a few quid but paid for itself in a few months with the savings I made from not forking out each month.

If you remove the card from youre sky box it will continue to work as a freesat box anyway,i think you get more channels that way too.as for recording go buy an old vcr at car boot or even a dvd recorder theyre pretty cheap.but no sky+ wont work after you stop paying them,sorry this prob doesnt help
