    Hi Guys, does anyone know the specification of the hard drive cable in a late V1 Sky+ box i.e. how long is it and how many pins 40/80? I'm about to change my drive and have read that the old cable often breaks taking it off. I'm about to order from CPC so I want to have a spare handy!

    Thabks

    Pull on the plug, not the cable, and you'll be OK :thumbsup: If it's hard to remove, use the old trick of winding some cord around the plug and pull on that. The cable used on IDE connectors is very thin and easily strained.
