      Freesat and 2nd Hand Sky+ Receiver

      Newbie here so forgive me...

      Here goes:
      Have already read ALL posts about this here and elsewhere(honest)
      Used to have a Freeview Hardrive PVR the signal was rubbish where I live so changed all that to a Freesat system 50 all-in and self installed by yours truely.

      Loved the PVRs recording function would like to do this with a 2nd Hand SKY + box from say Ebay or something and Freesat card.

      What no-one has answered as far as I could see was do I have to pay 10 a month subscription charge for EPG functions on the SKY + box as a non-package subscribing peron with a Freesat card ?

      AND would I be able to phone SKY and they know what I am talking about? and be capable of sorting it out there and then on the phone?

      If this is not possible would it not be cheaper to subscribe (although this goes against my " I am not paying for something I already pay for" attitude)?

      Any advice gratefully appreciated from fellow forum members!

      Bevan

      you would have to pay 10 to use the recording feature of sky + and change some cabling.
      This matter has been discussed many a time if you do a search i am sure you will find all the answers!
