Sky+ HD is the brand name of the HDTV service launched by Sky plc on 22 May 2006 in the United Kingdom and Ireland to enable high definition channels on Sky to be viewed.

    Replace Sky HD+ box HDD with a much smaller one

    It is an Amstrad DRX890W-C, going to replace the current 500Gb with a 40/20Gb. Questions are: 1. The original HDD is not soldered in, is it? 2. Will it still work fine as a standard Freeview / Freesat box with such a small replacement drive? It is not going to be used as a recorder any longer.
