      Don't worry about the horror stories you may have read about sky+ reliability. It is just as reliable as the next piece of PVR equipment available on the high street.
      I would agree, since having upgraded to the High Def Sky+ box in June last year??, cannot remember exactly, whatever, no problems at all have shown up thus far. Which have also voted it as a 'best buy'.

      I believe if you buy from sky, you get one choice:

      Pace TDS470N - Pace Micro Technology

      Obvioulsy you can upgrade to sky+ yourself by buying a sky+ box and quad lnb. You then just need to ring up sky to switch on the sky+ features to your card and to 'marry' the card with the new box.

      No, you don't get to choose which make, you buy a Sky branded Sky+ box.
      You can, however, ask the installer what he has on his van at the time of the install.

      Even though my Sky+ boxes has broken down more times than my PC, it is still a great bit of kit.
