Mark Agius: I thought the whole point of ITV Encore is that it's part of the Sky subscription?

Sky charge for the facility to record as part of a Sky+ subscription. Without that, you cannot use this box to record or playback.
If you had a FreeSat (not Freeview) PVR box with a recoding capability you could record and playback plus it would work with your existing Sky dish.

I'm amazed you cannot get a "fix" to make Sky boxes record.

Steve P:
Sky are very particular about the 'box' and how it is used. There is no official way to make a Sky+ box record or playback without a subscription and the associated Viewing Card.

I have an old analogue tv box (green 4' x 3' that was placed by the council at the year dot. It is no longer in use. As it is probably still connected to electricity how would I go about getting it removed? It now sits on private property not Council owned.

Peter: I'm not sure what green analogue box is, but ring your local council, they will often pickup bulk items, if only on an annual basis.

BTW - what do you mean by ' it is probably still connected to electricity'?

MikeP it was not "official" ways I had in mind! I bought my box second hand and have never had any relationship with Sky so I feel free to do what I like with it.

Peter can you describe the box better please. You say 4 feet by 3 feet? And how high?

In a building; on the ground, or up a pole?

What purpose did it serve?

Where do you think it is getting electricity from?

Does it have a label?

Can you open it?

But for simplicity if you wrench it off whatever it is fixed to and short out the power supply it should blow a fuse somewhere!
