      Cool Sky + without subscription

      Hi there,

      I have a Sky + box from my friend's parents after they cancelled their Sky subscription. Currently it is plugged into the FreeSat connection without the phone plugged in so that we can get SkyOne and a few other channels that FreeSat don't have such as E4.

      Is there a way to hack this box to be able to use the record features of Sky + without paying 10 pounds per month.

      Will reformatting the drive enable this feature or can I plug into the serial port and telnet into the box to change some setting.

      Many thanks

      Yes, ring sky and give them someone elses bank details.

      In short, no, there is no way to do this.
