I've decided to try and get my parents SKY+ for their Christmas. I tried phoning Sky to add to buy the SKY+ box for them through our account, but they weren't having it. So, I'm going to go and fit the LNB and new cabling for them, then give them a SKY+ box for Xmas. I will probably have to try and get their Card paired to the box first though.
So I'm on the lookout for a SKY+ Box or an HD box, which I would keep and give them my Sky+ Box.
