    Hi, I've searched unsuccessfully for a thread.

    Does anyone know whether the hard disk can be upgraded/upsized?

    Thanks

    Generally speaking, all DVD/HDD recorders are permanently locked to use the size of disk in the specification. So if you put in a 160GB disk, even if it worked, you would still only be able to use 80GB.

    The only machines i've read about being upgraded are early Pace HD Freeview boxes.

    If you can give types / links for info it will help JohnCCFC.

    However, it is possible someone has found a way if you can get a Pioneer ID disk or something. Have a look through this thread. You'll need to go some way..

    If you wanted a 160Gb you should have got the 720
