Hello to you all and I am a new joiner and thanks for taking the time in reading my post.

Ok I am an English expat living and working in Holland and I have a sky+ HD Box and no subscription I just watch the free channels which there are plenty of.
The problem is I need a Top PVR to connect to my sky box so I can pause/record programs as I would normally do if I had a sky contract.
Now reading the what HI-FI the current best PVR I see is the Humax Humax FVP-5000T but will this work ok for me in Holland?
Of course I will not use the freeview service as I am on in the UK, well I suppose I could if I get a vpn which is very possible.

Or is there another PVR which is equally good which I could connect to my sky box?

Your comments and advice would be very helpful indeed.

Thanks & Regards,

Eddie.

My sister used to live in Holland. Her Sky subscription worked over there. However she also used to record and edit from Sky to a Sony DVD recorder with HDD.

You'd be better off replacing the Sky box with a Freesat PVR

Cheers Dave for your input but I am in Holland can I still use the freesat box maybe if I have a vpn to the UK? or can I just use the Freesat PVR on it's own?

Cheers,
Eddie.

You'll be able to view and record the satellite channels without any issue, but obviously the catch-up services such as iPlayer would require a VPN

Thanks Dave for your advice will get a freesat PVR Box then already have the 2 lnb dish installed
