1st generation Sky Digiboxes


Active Member
Is anyone else still using a 1st generation digibox?

My Pace is still going strong , although it is bloody slow compared to my Sky+ V2.

How comes i have the updated EPG but the background and Sky Guide logo is the same as the old one?

Yep my 1998 vintage PACE 2200 is still going strong as a FTV box, it's slow but it gets there eventually:)

Yep so is mine, I am looking to use it with the Gnome if it ever comes out. That way the kids can still watch cartoons on the sky + when I listen to the radio.

Hi Guys,

We have the Pace Version 1 in the bedroom, working perfectly, only put there because we had Sky+. I do notice a difference in the speed though. With its limited bedroom use it will probably go on forever, maybe until I get an HD box in about five years time!
