      It has to be connected to a dish with a valid card to be able to play Sky+ content. This is a gripe that many have, why should you not be able to view recorded content when the satellite is down? To the best of my knowledge Sky have never given a satisfactory reply.

      You could prove it to yourself by switching the box off, disconnecting the dish inputs, start up and try to play a recorded program. You will get a message 'Your Sky Box is initializing, please wait' and the wait will go on and on and on.
