Hi team,


 


As above I am looking for an all in one box with recording that has the ability to take a mysky card. I just took note of my bill which includes 3 decoders for which I pay $15 per box to enable the recording function. If I could save $45 per month on the 3 boxes I would be stoked! I have seen some alternative boxes but they all seem to be related to RV / Caravan scenarios and don't offer recording or online content.


 


Appreciate your time and thoughts here.


 


cheers


 


Harv

I assume it is against SkyTV's Ts and Cs to plug their Sky Card into an unofficial box.

Its a valid subscription with a Mysky box, just card is read in a card reader, and its easier to use too boot

And obviously you don't have the cards once you give the decoders back.

Correct the card goes back with the decoder, if you could just have the card and no decoder it could be a option for some.

Spyware:

You keep the decoder. Just don't pay the $15 for record, that's the benefit.
As other ones record without the fee.
