    I have just noticed that my Sky+ box is showing only 88% memory free, even though there are no programmes currently stored :confused:

    I even turned off the 60min rewind, which made no difference.
    There are about 15 programmes waiting to be recorded through the series link.

    any suggestions ?

    By memory you mean the hard drive capacity?

    I would have thought it was the IR reserved space, perhaps the box needs to be rebooted for the indicator to make sense. It could be a corrupt file system though, if you have no recordings to lose then do a full system reset, it will wipe the hard drive back to it's default setting. I expect that will sort out the useage indicator, then just add your series links again.
