Helpful tip. If you hold the remote maninly in the right hand, then set your PIN to 1111. That way, you can quickly move your thumb across to the 1 pad (this pad falls comfortably to the right thumb) and tap it quickly 4 times. Conversely, if left handed, then set to 3333.
Q: Understanding that I will invalidate my warranty, is it as easy to change the hard disk as it is on the Sky+ box? Is the drive SATA or IDE? Does a new disk force the same split between usable and reserved (i.e. the 300GB disk has 160GB usable, will a 500GB have about 266GB usable)? Can you make the external SATA port work, or do you have to upgrade the internal disk? A: Not yet known.
