Back to the original post. If your MySky HDi that you paid an upfront fee for is playing up, why not just get Sky to replace it? They still own it and have to replace it if it isn't working properly.

If hard drive space is a concern then get them to upgrade you to a MySky+ at the same time (I think that costs $150, IF you can still do it now that they only rent them).

There's talk of an upgrade to the EPG and interface soon, as well as watching SkyGo (On demand) through it if that is worth anything to you.

If you really want to go for another decoder I'd recommend the Vu+ Solo2 or Vu+ Duo2. They cost a bit and needed some initial setup to get Sky working but are great once they're going.
