I have two excellent condition sky plus boxes for sale.

I have the 160gb Amstrad DRX280 Model for sale, this is the model that allocates 50% of its hard drive to Sky Anytime and records recommended programs for you to watch based on your viewing. Complete with the Sky Navigator Remote Control, which houses a full keyboard within itself for ease of use when utilising the sky interactive services.

I also have a DRX180 which is the sky box with a 40gb hard drive (easily upgradeable with most IDE hard drives), Also in excellent condition and supplied with a standard sky + Remote

Both also come with a power lead.

DRX280 - £70 inclusive of delivery
DRX180 - £55 inclusive of delivery

Both boxes have been checked to be working for the freeview sky channels but as I no longer have an active sky subscription I cannot check the recording functionality of the boxes. I don't expect there to be any issues as there wasn't previously.

DRX180 Sold to TATEY pending payment - ty

Not really mate, I have an 80gb ipod so its more than enough for me.
#5
I would be interested in the 160Gb version

Quick question though. Can I simply put my sky card in and it will record? Or do I have to inform sky and have something set by then (I have skyplus in the main rom anyway so this is for the spare room)

Thanks

No you would need to call sky and get them to activate the Sky Plus on your viewing card and get them to pair it with the box. Also for full functionality in the spare room you would need a dual input to the back of the box - you may have this already as I believe it is pretty standard for SKY engineers to fit the cable now when installing multi room - but be best to check. I believe (although have never tried), that you could still record one channel though whilst watching a recording - although not live tv as it would use the 2nd tuner.

I don't have the 2nd cable as my 4 port LNB is maxed. Would it still be ok with just 1 input ( I know the limitations)

Also are Sky ok with pairing this or do they get arsey

Thanks

Ive never had any issues with sky pairing the boxes with the cards - you are allowed to buy new boxes obviously. I'm pretty sure that it would be fine with the one input - a quick google search seems to indicate it - but I obviously couldn't say categorically

Would you accept £45 delivered for the DX180?

Split the difference - call it £50 and youve got a deal - (seeing as I presume you have a similar surname to me - lol)

I wont be able to pay until friday as i stupidly transfered all of my money to my new bank account which i havent got a card for yet and they are yet to fully implement the faster payments situation. But if i receive my card before then then i will definatly pay sooner.

If thats ok with you then i'll definatly buy this off you.

Do you have any ebay feedback?

Be ideal if you could try and pay before friday as my wife is off on friday and I can get it collected then by courier.

Paypal gift would be preferred please.
