hey..
Is it possible to have mysky tuned into the same channel as a dvd recorder?? I would like to get the HD channels but use my dvd recorder to record stuff of it. is this possible??

Also when you get my sky do you keep your old black decoder?

As with the current MySky, the new MySky HDi will let you offline material from the HD by simply connecting the DVD recorder to one of the analog outputs (composite,S-Video, or component) and recording whatever the box is playing (or its harddisc or offair). Naturally in SD. I am sure you can keep your old MySky, but you will be billed for it as with any Sky Box.

You can keep your old decoder free for 3 months I think, then its $25 a month for 'Multiroom' service.

It would be nice if sky offered Copy+ to copy the content from the old decoder to the new one so you could keep your recordings... But that would be in the customers interest. hence Sky would never do that.
