      Hey Nigel, how are you?
      I have been researching this myself recently, there is a thing called slingbox, where you hook it up to the sky box at your aunties and she hooks it up to the internet, and you access it via the internet in Perth, the only problem with that is her internet connection, if se does not have good upload speeds then no matter how quick your internet is it will be rubish, also there is a 4-7 seconds lag when accessing the sky menu etc…. When you press a button.
      I have chosen the sky go option, just hook it up to my telly via the computer and the picture is good.
      But if you wanted a physical sky+ box to record on and access look up slingbox.

      Kind regards
