    What is the best speed and will SKY+ software update to show the used storage etc.

    I think 120Gb is the largest you can go for.

    IIRC the sky+ doesnt recognise the bigger drive and will still read full when there is still 2/3rds to go.

    IIRC The most that will work is 137GB at the moment, but somebody could (by using unofficial firmware), increase that to 4 terabytes, such as that used on the XBox (although I very much doubt anybody has the guts to hack sky+s or the use for 4 terabytes of SD televison)
