    I have been running this for 6 months or so, pretty good too!

    you can even connect to a currently recording show by playing the stream file from the humax.

    Still cant play any encrypted stuff

    6 months! I normally keep an eye on this sort of thing, but it surprised me.

    Do you use the Twonky server?

    Do you mean the flag set to prevent copying? Or am I thinking of something else?

    Sky stuff is normally tight as a drum. It might be worth a sniff around the avforums, though.

    I changed the drive in my sky box and swapped out a 250gb hdd for a 1.5tb hdd. I clones it with acronis and used the variable space option, its much better. The encryption is a pita as I can't get off some of the films. Lol

    So are you saying if I buy a Dreambox I can still get Sky on it? Will it read me Sky card a decrypt my subscribed channels?
