      How can I watch what I recorded on my old sky box?

      Bought new sky+hd box but still have programs on my old sky+ box, when i press play comes up no satellite feed (cables 2 now in new box) so without taking cables from one box to the other is there a way I can watch my recorded programs?.

      I don't think it's possibly sorry. I presume you have also associated your viewing card with the new HD box now as well, so even with the feeder cables attached, you can no longer view the recordings on the old box without the viewing card inserted, which will no longer work in the old box.

      You could have used ExPVR to copy the content to the new STB. Of course this would invalidate any warranty (the new STBs come with a seal). It would also wipe any new recordings on your new STB.
