We already have Sky but I'm considering buying a Dreambox so we can get Sky on the bedroom TV and have the Freeview channels. I have a few questions:
1. Is it possible to clone our existing Sky card to use in the Dreambox?
2. Alternatively, does the card need to be in the Dreambox all the time?
3. I've been looking at the Dreambox 500 as the cheapest option but this doesn't support a hard disk for recording. What's the next model up that supports this? Is recording as easy as it is with MySky, or more complex?
4. Does the Dreambox 500 support playing from external sources, e.g. a USB stick?

Thanks for any help.
