Dreambox PVR and Sky+ Query - 03-March-2009, 10:42

Hi all,

I am trying to decide which Dreambox to start out with. Much as I would love to get a HD-PVR, they are considerably more expensive than the Dreambox 500S copies. Hence before taking the plunge I want to make see what use the better boxes will be in my setup.

What I want to know is whether you get full Sky+ type capabilities on Sky feeds using the more expensive PVR boxes? Also, does it require the Sky+ subscription, or does it just work to it's own standard? I suspect that it has no series link or other Sky functionality, but the ability to record anything in the EPG. I also susoect that as such it won't require a Sky+ subscription, but I would love to have it confirmed.

Thanks in advance

you get 100% of sky+ features, or even sky hd features
with a less user friendly enviroment

the power of sky is its UI and no image on any dreambox comes anywhere close.
Obviously, it being a closed system, many will argue that it doesn't allow customizing or making it the "way we want".
No doubt, however, bottom line remains that even my grandma could use a sky box and record her favorite programs by setting a timer.... if i gave her my dreambox remote she'd start using it to turn on the lights :)

so in response: yes you get all the features, but no, it's not as "pretty" as on an actual sky+/sky hd box
