    Hi,

    I have a v1.0 Pace SKy+ box and am looking to upgrade it by installing a larger capacity hard disk (160 - 200 - 250 MB).

    I've been reading various articles but can't seem to "nail down" clear hard facts.

    I'd like to know what is the largest capacty disk I can install in my v1.0 Pace Sky+ box and which disk will work without the "17 Minute Bug".

    Any/all advice would be appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance !

    DAZ

    I installed a 160Gb disk in my Pace v1 box, and it was fine at first, but after a little while (presumably when the disk got to a certain percentage full), it developed the 17 minute bug. Several times now I have had recordings freeze near the end, so I missed the climax of various shows. Very frustrating and annoying. I will be replacing the 160Gb with a 120Gb shortly, as I read somewhere that this is the limit for avoiding the 17 minute bug.
