    Why would anyone be doing that?

    Sky+ I can understand if they've upgraded or I suppose they might if they've bought a freesat tv or something.

    Maybe they are moving, left Sky etc.

    Need a new box as my Sky+ box as mine likes to record programs with only half the sound. So thought I would try and replace with a HD one.

    Does the HD sky boxes work with BBC HD without paying the £10 a month to sky for the HD channels?

    I was thinking about taking sky up on their £75 upgrade but at the moment i need a box with component out, and the new boxes don't.

    There are a lot of retailers that sell the boxes standalone. Thats what I did and I paid about £200 for a new box with a years warranty. Sky may let you get the last gen HD box if you ask also.

    I use one of these:

    Fortec Star Satellites

    Doesnt have a disk for recording though, or Sky's GUI, but means I can interchange my ART, Polsat and Sky cards in the one reciever.

    dont you mean composite? If you want HD he would need to use component or HDMI (or vga but thats not on sky box's)
