      Fair play, but my post still holds true in that there is no guarantee as to which box you get. You can specify a brand new Pace V3, but you'll still get what the man decides to give you from his van. If you're lucky he wont have any refurbs in his van!!

      The refurb if you do get one is a PVR2.5 the equiv to a PVR3, Which I believe both have Anytime compatibility, With same specs.

      The refurb if you do get one is whatever refurb they have in teh van.

      When the hard drive fails, they replace the box and then refurb the old box with a new hard drive, so they refurb ALL boxes, but I aint gonna argue fibre, it just isn't worth it.

      Re: Sky+ questions - advice needed

      Thanks for all advice, cant seem to get the deal for 49 tried yesterday with the old "my friend just got the deal with you can I have it as well" they just said they have never heard of the deal before, any tips or tricks?

      I may have one sorted from some one on the forums now, but for 49 I'd get it from Sky.

      Cheapest option seems to be 99 for the box with installation, then you have to pay 10 a month for multi room but not 10 for Sky +

      Does that make sense?

      Yes, 10 for multiroom is well what it says, Multiroom, Moving the old box to another room,
      atm, you are exempt from the 10 Sky+ charge if you subscribe to any 2 premium channels and later in the year the Sky+ charge will be free to everyone, Even without the Premium Channels.

      As for the 49 its really about "Paying the Game" If you get on to the right person and they feel generous they will probably offer you it, However it seems that the "Cancelling Down" trick doesnt work, They simply let you leave without bargaining.
