Don't buy one! No one ever buys one, just phone sky and threaten to cancel and they will waive the 65 quid fee. Check out the forums on on [url]www.digitalspy.co.uk[/url] if you want some more info.

when you say died, are you sure its not just the hard drive thats failed, if it is they are easy to replace, google it to get a guide on replacing them, lots of people replace them to boost record time.

yep i agree with this,phone them and say i want to cancel (which they can not allow to happen), they will ask why, you will tell them your box has died and you are not prepared to pay for a new one, they will say hang on i will put you through to our cancellation department, a man then says we might be able to sort you out with a new box for nothing, you say in that case i will not cancel and they will send you the box ,
That is from personal experience although they didn't give me a new remote control.
It is cheaper for sky to give you a new box than to lose £200-£400 of business per year if you cancel.:whistling:

My son said he would cancel, they did nothing. I suppose it depends who you speak to.

did he go through with it or just threaten, they only do something if you are actually cancelling

i bought a sky+ box off ebay and it was faulty it wouldnt record two programs so i rang sky up and just explained that my box was playing up and i wasnt happy with the service i was getting etc she said somebody will call round and replace the box free of charge so i paid £30 for a brand new box and i sold it for nearly £80 following day - bargain - it does work if you ring them and also on a website, might be that digitalspy - there is a template of an email you should send to a head person at sky who will get it sorted in next to no time
