Hi. I have just cancelled mny Sky+ subscription because I only watch the basic channels.

1.I believe I can continue watching the basic Free to Air channels without paying sky anything so long as I keep the viewing card and don't detroy it as they advised.

2. I do however have lots of programs recorded (from the basic stations only). Will I still be able to view these once Sky activate my cancelation or should I start planning a viewing fest now!

3. I presume I won't be able to record any more on Sky+ once I'm no longer paying Sky for the privilege. I don't want to pay them any more; I'm going to buy a Humax box.

4. Can I 'feed' the Humax and old Sky+ boxes in different from the same satellite dish?

Thank you so much for your comments Mike & Tom. It is heartening to know there are genuine folk out there with a social conscience willing to help the ill-informed and needy!

I think I have a number of options now if I have understood you both correctly.

1a. Replace the Sky+ box in my main room with the Humax and then buy 2 more cables to connect to the dish (if I have a quad LNB?) and connect them to the old Sky+ box in a different room.

1b. If I don't have a quad LNB, then buy one to add to the dish.

2. Feed the Sky+ box with a cable fitted to the Humax 'LNB 1 OUT'.

In the interim, if I were to connect the Humax to the Sky+ "LNB OUT', could I copy what I have recorded on the Sky+ box to the Humax?
