    No, you don't. I fitted a Maxtor 200GB drive to my Pace V2 Sky+ box without running the utilities, and it is as quiet as the drive that came out. Just make sure you turn Instant Rewind OFF before you start, and run Housekeeping (Services 4,0,1, Select) when you've fitted the new drive. After you've verified that the box is working, you can turn Instant Rewind back on if you wish.
