    FreeSat HD Box - Recordable

    going to ditch Sky costs too much for a load of rubbish to watch, so looking to get FreeSat HD with the Skyplus equivalent.

    So which seems to be the best box around at the min

    I believe the Humax FOXSAT-HDR are the best ones, pricey though.

    Another vote for Humax.(_;)

    Is there still no way (hack) of using the record / storage function of the HD + Box without having to pay the 10 quid p/m ?

    Surely ,with FreeSat your going to get the same channels as Freeview ?
    For a complete change in channels get a European satbox . I've always had the foreign channels with a Humax ,then a Technomate and now the Spiderbox.
    No films interrupted with adverts every 10 mins or so and all the footy you can watch .

    Not to my knowledge, this is Murdoch we are talking about, he doesn't take kindly to people that hack his systems.

    No, they have a different channel line up.

    B+Q do a ROSS one for about 90, its nowhere near as good as humax, but its not exactly bad

    also you dont get dave the channel on free sat

    Get a dreambox - and keep all your crap sky channels you're getting rid of too! X)

    I was going to change to a Freesat HD box but didn't want to pay £200+
    Decided to stay with the Sky HD box and pay £10 a month for Sky+, so in 20 months it will have been the same as buying a new Freesat HD box but I don't have the hassle of changing, in 20 months time I can then decide what to do again, also don't have to race through watching all the crap we've just recorded on the Sky box!

    Currently I also have the standard Sky package in that £10 a month due to a 6 month half price promotion so not that bad.
    Bad thing with Freesat is the lack of HD packages, there are many more free HD channels on Sky than Freesat!
