I got a Sky+ box here!

Amstrad model. Hardly used (was in my last flat, had proper connections for it there). comes with viewing card, which is basically a freesat card.

Nothing much to say about it, other than the fact it works perfectly, surprised me with the amount of recording it can do and really is now useless to me (got virgin media here, with old sky minidish connection going into my mums old sky box upstairs).

I'm looking for offers around £65? Paypal/banktransfer/postal order/cheque are all fine for payment!

Maybe Intrested Would you go any lower

Very very poor question here. You have to be subscribed to Sky services to view channels don't you? Its not a simple plug in and play is it?

Sorry :$
banned#4
you need a minidish deal4me :P but no. you need no subscription!

I'd maybe go lower if payment was more direct than by paypal. like bank transfer or whatever. I'd really prefer money to go into my account rather than into paypal. I have trust issues with them :( Took me a month to get money for ebay items into my lloyds account.

£60 paid by bank balance transfer?

My Amstrad Sky box has just died (red light of death). Could get Virgin but they insisted on running the ugly cable right through my house last time and I couldn't wait to get rid of it.
#6

What?!? And where would you get a minidish from? So its like a one-off fee??

I thought sky was a pay monthly thing? If not, am interested!:thumbsup:

Or have I got it all wrong? I have an old dish on my house from where we used to have sky 10 years ago
#10
To get the sky stuff im pretty sure you need to subscribe to sky
#11
thats what I thought, you dont according to kingkoopa!
#12
You will only be able to pick up the 'free to air channels' without a Sky Subscription.
#13
You can use this as a freesat box if you have a minidish set up.

Just plug it in and away you go. You CANNOT use the recording functionality unless you pay Sky £10 per month.

Would be best use as a replacement for a Sky+ customer with a broken box

chrisUK, read the recent changes to sky+. I have tested the recording facility, and anyone who wishes to say otherwise is welcome to come along here for a demonstration!!

the £10 fee was done away with back in february.

the card is NOT freesat. it came from my flat where the box was used in a multiroom installation. I'll give more details over PM for anyone interested.

We no longer have a sky subscription in this house, and it's funny that we're still fully able to use live rewind and record as we please. the only drawback is you need the minidish to have a double fitting to allow you to watch and record different programs at the same time, however, this is not necessary if you want to record the channel currently being viewed.

I suggest some of you adhere to forum rules, by only posting if you're interested in the item, and more importantly read up on sky's current conditions on the digital spy forums. I wouldn't post functionality it can't live up to frankly.
#15
So you saying you can get 6 mixes & Sky+ box and not pay the £10 charge for not having premium channels ?
#16
Well according to Sky, your wrong......

okay. i admit some form of fault here.

the card i would be including was a multiroom card that for some reason still works down here, picking up the ******** flatmates sky sports and 4 mix.

i guess that's why it records. but he's not being charged anything. sky error i guess.
