    Hey all,

    Am I right in thinking that sky are rolling out new sky+ boxes with a hard drive of 80gb rather than 40gb?

    Don't think so, but maybe someone 'll know for sure. The big drives on the upcoming + boxes are suposed to be partitioned (for some reason) with only half available. Maybe this is where the 80 gig's come from (2 X 40gb) I don't believe they're actually that size.

    To clarify. V3 boxes are fitted with 160Gb Drives. These are partitioned however and only 80Gb is available for user recordings. The other 80Gb is for Sky's 'future use'
