Currently have Sky + HD which we can't afford to keep. We want to swap to Freeview but want the record/pause/rewind functions of the Sky box. Can you recommend a Freeview HD+ box that is like for like with the Sky box. I've been trawling through all the info online but my head is spinning, there are so many conflicting views on capabilities/reliability.

Tina: Although you will no doubt see quite a few being advertised with varying price levels, if you want a good quality box with excellent backup facilities then you cant go wrong with a Humax brand "Freesat" box, I highlight Freesat as it simply connects into the same two "F" connectors as is used by the Sky box, nothing else requires to be done.

Model referred to being a Humax FOXSAT-HDR which does exactly the same as your Skybox, this available via web sources with various sizes of hard drive, the standard being 320Gb.

If though there is any particular reason for wanting a Freeview recorder then Humax also has Freeview versions, these obviously working though a normal aerial, the model being a Humax HDR FOX-T2.
