Hi everyone. Firstly, apologies if this has already been asked, I have looked, but couldn't find a relative thread.

So - I have just bought a Humax HDR1000s 500. So far I'm very impressed with the machine, all seems to be working well.

I'm currently with Sky and have a few programmes recorded that I would like to transfer to my new box. Is this possible? If so, how can I do this?

You can extract the programs from your Sky+ box onto a PC as long as they're on the free channels (Encrypted channels can be extracted but it depends on the box and you need other stuff).

I guess you'd need to convert the files after that for playing on the Humax.

Thanks for your reply, but crikey, it sounds complicated.

dekaf, there isn't much of an incentive for Sky to make it easy!
