If I upgrade in the UK to Sky Q and bring my viewing card to Spain to use in a normal Sky HD+ box would it still enable me to use the record facility of the box in Spain as I can now?

If you contact Sky to pair the card from one box to another, and if you get an operator that allows you to pair a SkyQ card to a box that it is not intended for.
No pairing, no recording

many thanks for reply satandpcguy.
as its a holiday home used for short visits i would not be able to keep getting the card paired and unpaired by Sky.
at the moment i bring my 'normal' viewing card with just to allow the recording facility so i think i will just stay with the normal box in the UK for now to allow this to continue.

presumably if i do eventually change to Sky Q in the UK i could just buy a recordable box in spain to receive and record UK 'freeview' channels?

Ideally a Freesat HDR box, will allow you to record the free channels.

(freeview is UK TV via a tv aerial, and is NOT available in Spain, and nor do freesat boxes connect to a tv aerial, so make sure you get the correct box. I have been to too many people who, after reading incorrectly worded posts online, have bought freeview boxes expecting them to get UK TV in spain!)
