Re: MEMORY CAPACITY OF SKY+ BOX AND SKY+ HD BOX.

I THINK the later Sky+ boxes had hard drives with 360GB capacity. The newest standard Sky+ HD box has a capacity of 500GB though 1 and 1.5 TB variations are available. Bear in mind that not all of the capacity is available to users. I stand ready to be corrected!

Re: MEMORY CAPACITY OF SKY+ BOX AND SKY+ HD BOX.

Hi PETETHEMEAT,

 

The later Sky+ boxes had a 160gb drive with 80gb available for personal use and the other 80gb for Sky Anytime.

 

The newest Sky+HD boxes now have 500gb with 250gb for personal use and 250gb for Sky Anytime.

 

The Sky+HD 1tb box actually has a 1.5tb hard drive with 1tb personal and 500gb for Sky Anytime.

 

Hope this helps

Re: MEMORY CAPACITY OF SKY+ BOX AND SKY+ HD BOX.

I have a new Sky+HD box - delivered today - and the box had 250GB on it.  The engineer who installed it said that it was the model that is given out 'free'.  He also said that the 1TB box has to be paid for, and is about £400.

Re: MEMORY CAPACITY OF SKY+ BOX AND SKY+ HD BOX.

I'm seriously not happy with the memory of my box - to the point that I have had to stop recording programmes in HD as they use too much memory.  There must be a way to get a newer box with more memory - I have had mine for a number of years now. I'm ready to cancel it as it's pointless...

As you've had the box for a number of years, there's nothing to stop you upgrading the hard drive yourself if you wish.

Sky aren't going to react to your message here.

 

Why not give them a call, or log in to sky.com and see if there's a deal available to you? Alternatively, upgrade your hard drive as Kenneth suggests, or look around for a box to purchase privately.

If you had the box for a while then phone up Sky you should get a good deal on a new 1 TB box. I did - for £64 but with a reduced subscription fro 6 months which works out as a free box.
