how do i know i have an 1.5TB box?


Established Member
hi all,

i had an old thomson box since 2007 and took advantage of their free upgrade. whilst on the phone the operator said i could get an 1.5tb for £49, so i took the offer! the sky engineers came today and replaced the box. when i went to look at the box, and clean behind the shelf, (might as well) i noticed it says "1tb" at the bottom left of the box. the box is an amstrad DRX 895-c box. so how can i tell if the box is a 1.5TB?

The confusion arises because although the DRX895 has a 1.5 TB HDD, only 1TB is available for your own personal recordings with the other 500GB reserved for Anytime. Some people refer to it as a 1TB box (as Sky themselves usually do) and others refer to it by its total HDD size as a 1.5TB although they are both one and the same box.

The box is 1.5tb of which 1tb is for your personal use while the other 500gb is reserved for the Anytime services. There are only two receivers now one being 1.5tb and the other being the 500gb receiver.


Those details have been posted many times.
