Just wondering if the MySky HDI box has Macrovision or anything of that matter on those channels.
If you're using an HDi box though, be aware that the box doesn't output HD over component (unless this has changed recently, and I'm pretty sure it hasn't).
B1GGLZ: No doubt MySky HDi will record but then you can't get the recordings off the box onto a PC.

Actually, you can.
I haven't done it - I have most of the necessary kit but don't actually have an HDi unit. Getting the recordings off in SD is pretty easy - just like transferring a macrovisioned VHS. HD can be done as well, but is harder. I know a couple of people who have managed, but it's expensive and a bit fiddly to set up and use the necessary hardware. Whatever you do, you have to transfer in real time.
