    First impressions.
    Worked straight out of the box.
    Connected Component and optical to my amp and the dish cables to the back of the HD box. Transfered the sim card.
    Voila it worked. Didn't even need to call sky.

    The difference in SD is quite amazing, compared to my version 1 sky+ box (probably down to using component vs s-vid), and sound quality is much better (again using optical rather than analog out).

    BBC HD looks fantastic, even on my 480p only 42" plasma (going back to SD channels was quite dissapointing). However I won't be upgrading until far more channels are available in HD.

    Much quieter than my old sky+ box.

    And loads of disk space. Hopefully my daughter won't fill this box up with bloody disney teenage crap

    One freeze (power off at the mains cured it)
    A couple of missed recordings on Friday and on Sunday (project Runway). Will try and switch Anytime off tonight to see if that solves the problem.
