You'd be much better off buying a seperate reciever & dish set as sky boxes (SD, Sky+ and HD) are limited to only 2 symbol rates, and so you wouldn't get very many channels on the sky+ box from Hotbird. Also, I believe the sky+ box doesn't use just 1 tuner for the signals, so it would switch between the two inputs which would be a bit of a pain!!!

There's no such thing, if you heard it from a friend's mate's girlfriend's mum's nephew's schoolmate's nextdoor neighbour, then don't believe it, sky is as tough as old boots when it comes to even think of "unlocking"...
