    Hi

    Reading lots about how bad the Amstrad+ boxes can be - is the one to go for the one from Pace? (Does it have a name that I can quote at Sky, or is it just 'the Pace one'!).

    And do you just specify which one you want when you call them to order it?

    If I tried for the £49 refurbished thing will I automaticlly get the Amstrad+ box?

    Is the 160 any better?

    Sorry for lots of questions in one post.....

    Steve

    Don't know about the £49 one, but when I spoke to Sky to order Sky+ multi-room this weekend they told me that I would almost definately get a Pace box.

    The 160 box has known software issues with the sound, so avoid at present.

    You cannot specify the brand if ordering from Sky - you can buy boxes elsewhere but they are much more expensive and would not include fitting but you can choose what you buy

    What you say would normally be true, but from what installers have said on here, and from what Sky told me when I spoke to them at the weekend, it would be fairly safe to assume that all new Sky+ boxes supplied at present are Pace V2's. Probably due to the level of problems with Amstrad Sky+ boxes.
