Will Sky record if TV unplugged?

The Sky box will record regardless of whether your TV is plugged in or not.  It doesn’t need to be connected to the TV either to work. But if you unplug your Sky box, then it will not record the programs you have set up.  It will not be able to update either. It takes around 5 minutes for the box to come back on after it has been switched off so leave time for this to happen before a recording or you will miss the start.
