    Hi all,

    Just a quick one for anyone in the know,

    My Amstrad 1TB box HDD has bit the dust last night after 5 years good service, I have booked for an 'engineer' visit (£65) I know they will just replace the box with another but as the 1TB has been discontinued what will I get as a replacement? I don't want a silver fronted one or less that 1TB!

    They should replace it with a refurb 1 or 2TB box or if none available a new 2TB box.

    Funny enough after being left all day I noticed the record light was on tonight? checked planner and everything is there (apart from a few failed recordings) considering I carried out two full system resets! Just watching stuff off the planner now before it gives up again! obviously on its last legs....

    Just an update to say i'm very pleased with the engineers visit. Let's just say he was a more 'mature' fella who knew his stuff, replaced the box for a new 2TB and also replaced the dish/LNB as he thought mine was getting a bit old....i'm happy with all of that for £65....
