This freesat PVR replaces a Sky box or can be connected to an existing satellite dish. Note that this only receives free-to-air channels and a Sky card cannot be added.

The recorder hard disc size is limited however it can be replaced with a larger one (extra cost is probably not worth while but see below). It only has limited access to catchup TV but if you get a £19.95 Now TV box (see http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/now-tv-box-with-6-month-entertainment-pass-2422472 ) you will be able to access the Sky entertainment package for 6 months and have better access to the UK catchup services.

This will record in HD and if you have a double lead, you can record two and watch a third. It is also possible to record two if you only have a single satellite dish cable (unlike with Sky boxes) but your options are limited as the settings on the dish itself have to be changed for some options.

In addition to the freesat stations, it will also receive and record "non-freesat" free to air channels more easily than a Sky box. Sky PVRs will not record or playback once you cancel a contract however a larger hard disc drive might be able to be transferred to this box. This needs a degree of expertise and will invalidate the 1 year warranty from Humax (so keep the old Sky PVR and do it later).

Yes, it appears to be a freeview box - need to change description or delete!
