I've got one of the original Sky+ Pace boxes, no longer under warantee. I'm fed up with a constant whining noise but am not sure what to do. I think it's the hard drive rather than the fan, as moving it to a better ventilated place has not helped. Turning instant rewind off makes minimal difference. Should I just phone Sky? Will they offer to replace the box? Am I right that I will have to pay £69, and will probably end up with the 'inferior' Amstrad box? Can I simply buy the supposedly better Pace box at Comet or wherever, and plug it in? Can I buy another box entirely? If so, will I get all the features I have at the moment? What do you recommend? Or should I hold off as I've a HDMI HD compatible plasma, and buy a new HD box next year? Sorry if these questions are basic, and thanks in advance for any help.
