    I am an NTL D Cable (ex C&W) user in the Manchester area.

    I have the original C & W DSTB and am thinking of swapping it with the Pace 4000 so it'll work with the universal remotes (i.e. Pronto)

    NTL and Pace aren't very helpful with the spec, so if anybody can answer a few queries, i'll be most grateful...

    First of all, has anybody done a swap like this, if so do NTL charge a call out fee?

    Does the spec differ much?

    Does it still have RGB SCART out?

    Does it have S-Video OUT and/or RGB SCART OUT on the AUX SCART (i'd be surprised!)?

    How does it differ with broadband (not that I have it...yet)?
    I heard you had to purchase a modem but you don't with the C&W STB.

    Can I still maintain my second STB or would I need to change both?

    Will I gain or lose anything from changing to this model?

    I know it doesn't have phono out and RF sockets which is OK as I don't use them anyway.

    TIA

    Take a look here.

    Says the Di4000 has an integrated cable modem, so I would think it would be able to support ex-C&W cable broadband through the set top box.

    Also looks to have phono's and RF, if we are talking about the same thing.

    As an ex-C&W NTL customer myself, also desiring to get rid of the annoying Di1000 box for much the same reasons, I'll be following this thread very closely. If you get anywhere with it Kevo, make sure you let us know the ins and outs.

    Cheers.

    That's very strange... I've never heard of the Pace Di4010. Only Digital Spy seem to have any info on it. I've heard of the Di4100 STB.

    Very interesting... but it does say that NTL are only supplying new customers with this box.

    I wouldn't hold much hope of getting one in a straight swap for a working box....
