    Just wondered, with people replacing the Sky+ hard drive with a larger size, has anybody put the old hard drive containing programmes into their PC. Just wondered what the file formats were to see if you can then burn them to DVD if needbe (hmm, if so would this also work for Box Office movies).

    The file format is simply a copy of the original data stream i.e. it has not been decrypted or decoded as yet. Even if you could theoretically crack VideoGuard, you still wouldn't be able to read the HDD as the data is written using a special modified ATA controller rather than a normal one.
