Just about to get sky+ installed and want to know which is the best box. I currently have a grundig sky box sending video via s video.

I'm after something with optical output (5.1) to my amp and s video or even component via my HTPC to display onto my projector....any issues or boxes to keep clear of would be appreciated.

cheers

There's a new one out made by Amstrad, which I had installed today. I'll let you know how I get on with it

Except the V3 ones made by Amstrad. ;)

Hi all,

We're in November now and I was wondering if the above is still the same.

Does anyone know of a list of boxes/box reviews by any chance. I am looking at maybe upgrading to sky+ and am evaluating the cost/advantage of upgrading the panny dsb40 I have at the moment.

Thanks a lot

You can get Pace (V2) or more probably Amstrad if Sky install it, there are no other standard boxes. There is also the 160 which is much more expensive.

I would go for the Pace box. If you ever want to put a bigger hard drive into the box, there is a lot more experience of doing this with the Pace than with the Amstrad.
