    Ok after many many lengthy calls to Sky we have managed to get upgrade to sky+ on the V1 refurb deal.
    Anything I need to look out for with it being a V1 box, ie any bad points?

    Had excellent service from my V1 which is coming up to it's 4th birthday:)

    If you upgrade the hard drive you will suffer the 17min bug which is a hardware issue I believe and never fixed by firmware updates.

    Apparently that depends on the version number of the box. If the box has number lower than 9F2006 it will only work with drives up to 120GB. Versions 9F2006 and above will accept drives up to 250GB.

    To find the version number:

    · Press "Services" on your Sky+ remote
    · Then Press number “4” / "System Set up"
    · Then Press number “5” / "System Details"


    Otherwise, the V1 and V2 boxes have exactly the same specs.

    Thanks for the clarification, mines a 9F2003 but never had the need to replace the hard drive so only know the basic outline of the problem:)
