    Since the new V2. Sky+ boxes run the same firmware as the new 160GB box, if we started putting in replacement 160GB drives, would the correct capacity and available space show up on the sky digibox menu, as I heard that you had to use the progress bar as the box did not calculate the free space when you put in a bigger drive. If you see what I mean. I am shooting in the dark a bit, as it only gets installed tomorrow.

    I'm sure one of the latest software upgrades solved this problem so the indicators should be correct.

    Try a search on the forums, it's been mentioned in previous threads.

    I have a 200GB drive in my box, and the reported usage (both numerically and on the bar graph scale) is correct. The usage per item is often rounded up, because short programs can now use less than 1% of the drive.

    I've got a 250gb Maxtor in my Pace V2 with latest firmware - and all seems OK with the remaining bar also
