Hi, i was wondering is Sky Pluss any good? is it worth the 200quid for the reviver from BskyB? or can you buy your own cheaper and just buy a subscription? thank you.

From what I've heard, briggsy, it's the best PVR system around. If you can pick up a box cheaper then you should be able to sign up for a sub. Independent dealers can help you, doesn't have to be through BSkyB.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Receviers other than Sky+ have up to 120 G (at the last count- it could be more) in their spec, so its probably possible to load a larger drive into these. Im not sure of the impact on the timer / management system when setting the recorder with a small amoutn of space left though. I would assume the receiver 'knows' what is fitted when the drive is initiated.

There are a couple of threads in this section discussing the fitting of larger drives.
