If it uses the tiny tuners as in the Pace BSKYB2600 then it should be excellent. If it uses the (upright) Z.I.F. tuners as used in the version 1 and the BSKYB2500 then it won't be very good.pjij said:What about the v2 Sky+ digibox? Whats the tuner in that like?
From what I've read you can use an FTV card but you need to subscribe in order to use the recording (and more importantly playback) facilities of $ly+. Currently £10 per month I believe.Leee said:Carlos - a Free2View card will work but to record, I'd say you'll need to pay £10 and maybe even take up a pukker Sky sub for this

wobbly said:What I've found works quite nicely is marrying up a Panasonic HDD DVD Recorder with my TU DSB 31 Sky Box - the Panasonic DVD Recorders have something called "external link" which means by settign "autoview" on the Sky box, it switches the DVD on and starts recording at begin of the program, ending it at the end of the program.
Means you never have to set a video ever again, also the series link functions, means if the weekly / daily program switches slots, it'll still switch on at the right time ;-)
So, no need for Sky+.... also any programs you want to keep full time, just burn them onto a DVD - result :-)
