The 250gb hard drive can allo the recording up to 185 hours of SD and 60 hours of HD programming.

To benefit from the Sky+ recording functionality, you will need a Sky Subscription card. You cannot use the Sky+ record functionality without a subscription

Even without a Sky subscription card you can still receive all free HD channels, such as BBC1 HD, BBC HD, ITV1 HD, C4 HD.

Please note that a Sky+HD digibox requires two separate cable connections from your satellite dish. This means that your dish needs to be fitted with either a Twin or a Quad LNB. If the LNB on your dish only has one output port on it then you will have to upgrade your LNB.

To conform to EU legislation this Sky+HD Digibox comes with the new Sky ‘off’ mode to allow you to switch off and meet the maximum 1watt power usage. This option is selected by pressing and holding the power button for 5 seconds until the digibox displays the red ‘off’ light. In ‘off’ mode the digibox will NOT record any scheduled recordings, download Sky Anytime content or support TV Link, so they have included a ‘standby’ mode as well by just pressing the power button once, the digibox with go into sleep mode and display an amber light instead.
