    My warranty is soon to expire and I am planning to upgrade 120 or 160gb.
    Your tutorials and other links are toprate :thumbsup:

    But....

    I don't know what version of software I have. I have a silver Pace 3100 sky+ box that was given to me in November last year. I have gone through the usual menus and looked underneath but all to no avail.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Mick.

    If its silver, as opposed to white, then it sounds like a V1.

    Also, the V1 is the full width of standard AV equipment, whereas the V2 is quite small and compact.

    If that's not clear, then where are the rotating LED's that move when playing back a recording? If they're on the left hand side its a V1. If they're in the middle its V2.

    Personally, I have both and prefer the V1. For one thing it runs quieter and its a better aesthetic match to the rest of my AV equipment.

    Hope that helps.
