I have standard sky, and I purchased a "Sony Rdr HXD870 Dvd 160gb Hdd Recorder", it has a cool function called ilink (or something like that) which connects to the sky box, and snychs with it, gets all the channel info and guide etc, through the sony menu. and basicaly have sky + without a sky + box, you can pause live tv and do everything as if you had sky +, schedule recording and everything, cost about £200 quid, best thing I every bought, also plays divx, has memory card slot, usb slot, the lot. (even get multi-region) with a bit of googling...........

I doo miss the SKY HD channels - the footy, and even ultra-old films like Star Wars A New Hope just looked great. :( Unfortunatly it just wan't worth £60 odd a month.
Hopefully in a year or two I can resubscribe when there is more content.
It might not be anywhere near as good but why not try using freeview +???
