Recording with my sky + box

Can someone tell me how I can record with my sky+ box? If I get a sky free viewing card will I then be able to record onto the box? At present we are have no free viewing card so thinking this is the snag. Am I correct?

Thanks, Ali

Re: Recording with my sky + box

I do believe you need a sky+ subscription to record. I have heard that this will change though, i read it on this forum. Search a bit.

Re: Recording with my sky + box

As far as I know, you need a Sky+ subscription for the recording feature to work (just like gooner said). When I was changing over Sky+ boxes last year (to HD), the recording feature on the new box wouldn't work until I talked to Sky to pair the card and box.

Good to hear about possibly not needing to have a Sky+ subscription, though now that I've moved onto HD, I doubt they'll give that one away for free, too.

right now, there is a 10 charge to use the recording functionality of Sky+. In the future, there might not be - who knows? But this is why you cannot record.

Re: Recording with my sky + box

Just a quick comment - since 2-3 days the SKY + services on my HD Box (Sky Anytime and recording) are not working - probably issues at their end.

Re: Recording with my sky + box

well sky did included + function in the packages, when the lower the price of HD by approx 10.00 pounds a month.
But, for memory after working at a large TV company . they do a double pairing, normally this is done via one phone call, but ( i just spoke to a friend onthe hardward build support team) if the harddisk has miss read the key it could be that the they no longer pair, with the card...... but the card and box is still paired......
you therefore need to get the box and card re paired..... so small flight back to the UK; find a house with a sky box, change the box over call scotland and wait 30 mins......

fly home to CH and watch sky.....

Re: Recording with my sky + box

interesting - either it can cope with a new HDD or this is not right. Either way, no need to fly anywhere with the right tools to hand

Re: Recording with my sky + box

Thanks to all the replies! I will now order my card (hoping my uk skype number will be sufficient to call them and pretend I am in UK!! ) then try and pair up card and box after getting it sent out via a friend and let you know how I go. Many thanks, ALi
