Dimensions of HD Box

Just bought a new TV unit and my current sky+ box does not fit in the slot !!!  Was thinking of upgrading to HD anyway but don't want to get a box that is too big.


The sky+ box dimension for length is 379MM.  Any idea what length the HD box is ??

What HD box as there are a couple, the 1TB box is smaller than the 500GB model.

Also be aware Sky boxes like a lot of ventilation.So a tight enclosed space for your box may cause future overheating problems.

Hi Baincol, 


Welcome to the help forum Smiley Happy


I just wanted to add that as we have more than one make of HD box that we can install for a customer, I would suggest having a look at the manuals that we have available for customers. The reason being is that we are unable to specify which box that you will receive on the installation.
