Yes. Why not consider upping your BT TV package which includes a recordable box?
Yes, but it may work out cheaper to upgrade rather than buy a new one. Unless you get one from the famous auction sites. In any event I would ring the Options Team on 0800 800 030 and see what they can offer you.
I bought a BT Youview + box from EEEBUYGUM - I live in Yorkshire! It works a treat - I can even set it to record the Sky Main Event on the Youview app from anywhere.
Thank you to you for your help.
