    12 months only :(

    No issues particular to V2 other than some people have commented that it runs hotter than V1 due to the lack of space. Other issues will be the same as V1... same software, same functionality :)

    if the V2 packs up as many times as my V1 (4 different boxes), you'll want the extended warrenty aswell which is £99 a year at the moment. Just another sky running cost. £57 a month now for one box. soon it will be dearer than my council tax.!!!

    Good luck.

    I thought that on march the consumer laws changed so you can get a repair ect on an item for up to 5 years
    Provided the item has an expected life of up years
    EG a tv costs £700 after 4 yeras it breaks this is not deemed resonable life from a tv :confused:

    I assume you will still have to take a reluctant retailer to court and prove with an experts opinion that a product has a design flaw or failed within what the industry/market would consider a reasonable period. It would be easier and advantageous to the consumer to just put into law a minimum 3 year guarantee/warranty on a new product, if they can do it for cars then they can do it for consumer electronics.

    It's cheaper to get an extended warranty through an independent like warrantydirect.co.uk e.g:

    Sky+ box, 28 inch Sony WS & Pioneer AV Amp covered for £8.75 per month
