Any PVR that can record analogue tv will work (note it probably wont change channels) as you use the ariel output on the sky box to connect to it. This wont probably record box office etc as they usually have macrovision though. Before I got sky hd I used to use my analogue tuner in my pc to record and change sky channels.
