      According to This Orange are able to accept codes from other providers, including Sky, so there does not seem to be any reason why Sky cannot accept an Orange code. The only proviso being that it is not an LLU code and of course Sky's competence.

      Hope mine goes as well as yours Russ.
      Got my MAC code from Orange Friday night and passed it onto Sky, so we will wait and see.

      I think you are getting mixed up with the Sky+ box You will be supplied with a Netgear DG834GT, which has not yet been replaced and is the standard and only 'box' supplied by Sky for Broadband

      Sorry, I wasn't clear, I understand that there is more than 1 manufacturer of the Sky + box, PACE, THOMPSON,AMSTRAD possibly others, I just wanted to know, if any were better than others, i.e given the choice is PACE the best Sky + Box?

      Thanks

      Ahh, so you have just signed up for the full Sky package. As there had been no mention of TV in the post previously, I assumed that you were referring to the Broadband Router. If I had realized I would have pointed you to the Sky+ section of Skyuser. We are not just for Broadband you know

      Re: When do I ask for MAC Code?

      Apologies again for not being clear . My original post was regarding MAC Code, and rather than putting a new post in the Sky + section asking about the best box, I thought I would just ad it here..

      Thanks anyway..

      Steve
