Further to https://tickett.wordpress.com/2011/05/31/hacking-sky-anytime-part-3/

Despite the term “hacking” my intentions I believe to be pretty innocent, but at the risk of upsetting Sky (and their legal team- I am unfortunately going to have to put this one on hold…

I have done some more research and it looks like my best bet would be to buy something like a dreambox or vu+ duo which will allow me to use my legit Sky+ HD sub but recordings will be unencrypted (which means I can archive/stream on any computer on my network :) – it may even replace my htpc (ability to stream to the box from the network, youtube etc).

Hopefully I’ll be posting back if/when I’ve ordered/received and experimented with said device!
