I've never had MySky before and was wondering if you can transfer recordings from MySky HDi to an external hard disk? If so, will it be in HD? Reason I ask is because I travel quite often and would like to record programs to watch while I'm travelling.  Thanks in advance.

You can only record My Sky and HDi externally by playing back the video through the analog outs and recording it on a DVR etc. You can't transfer files.

This will therefore only be SD . No doubt it's technically possible to record it in HD but for the common user, no.

Hi KTran

Based on experiences with original MySky I am not aware of anyway that recodings can be transfered to another hard drive. Even if they could it would not be of any help as the recording still has to go through the decoder before being outputted to a display unit. The only way you are going to get recording is by recording to a DVD or DVD/HDD recorder in real time. Even though you are using a MySky HDi your recording would be standard SD ie 576i.

HD recorders are becoming available but because of copy protection you would be limited to SS1 and SS2 (for 1080i recording's)with one of those units.

Cool - thanks for the replies.

I'm tossing up btw getting a HTPC or MySky HDi.  If i get a HTPC, I wonder if there's a graphics card with HDMI input that you can record HD content from. I could use it to record Sports in HD, but not sure about the movies with copyright protection.  Will have to do a bit more research into it.
