You Tell Mee ...

You need to sign up to sky to use the recording feature. Its £10 on top of your monthly bill

You will need to take a subscription with them. To use the record functions it is £10/pm

ive also tried with the box standing upright- no luck there either

try soaking the box in a bucket of water over night-
that will decrypt the encoding and allow full recording access

i just wanted to record the standard channels not fussed about hd

do i still need a subscription?

yes ROKO if you do not subscribe to a sky package you have to pay £10 for recording
it is free if you subscribe,

There is no "free" recording mate.

You just need to subscribe to one or more of their packages now....
