      Am I right in thinking replacing a basic sky box with a second hand Sky+ box, doesn't attract any increase of subs?.

      Yes, providing you subscribe to at least 1 mix. You will need two feeds to the Sky + box though if you want to record one channel and watch another

      Thanks for the reminder re twin feed. That had slipped my mind.

      You will also have to have your card paired with the Sky box, which is only a phone call away.

      Ok, you say to them: "It's a Sky Plus Digibox. Please turn on the recording facility".

      Sorry if my question sounded stupid, but I wasn't aware it had to be turned on. My son has installed it at home, had his card paired and the box records OK.
