    I had the system installed this morning. The engineer actually confirmed that you could put in a larger drive rather than paying for the Sky+160 package! Anyway, I have a question. My box is an Amstrad and the EPG Version is 1.26 v3 and the Operating System Version is 1.3.0BH. I have looked at the Plusworld site and the versions I have are different. How does this software get upgraded? Do I have to wait for Sky to send it to my machine or can I force it to upgrade? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    Forced upgrade = turn machine off at mains and then back on whilst holding the backup button (the one on the box not the remote) - a warning will come up on screen saying update in progress may take 10 mins or some such nonsense!
