    Hi
    Has anyone who is currently on sky+ taken up the recent sky offer of "recommend a friend" to get a free sky+ 160 box? (assuming you are comfortable recommending a friend at present!)

    And are there different Sky+ 160 boxes or are they all the same?

    Sorry, but I thought people on here have said that they have amstrad ones. Do they mean V3 80gig ones (40 hour)?

    So V3 80 Pace, Amstrad and Thompson
    V3 160 Thompson.

    If this is correct its no point me asking for a pace on as the Thompson one has a to yellow output

    Well I needed a new sky+ box (after 5 refurb replacements of existing 2 yr old 20hr box) and have recommended a friend.

    The sky 160 box is being installed on Tues.

    Not bad for free.

    Is it possible to opt for a V3 rather than a 160 ? Anyone tried this - I currently have a PACE V2.

    I've had the 160 since November and have had 2 boxes now. The first was very loud and clunky, the second virtually silent.

    Well chuffed with it tho. Coming from a Pace 3000 the extra HDD space is immense.
