    Sky just replaced my faulty originalPace DVB Sky+ box with a new one - the same model but with V2 software ( the bigger box with black centre panel)

    I was hoping it would be a new generation model but the installer said the older one was more reliable - is this true [inappropriate word removed- lynx].
    Any views on which is the best sky + box ?

    Well my original version1 PACE is still going strong and it's over 3 years old:)

    To be honest both the current PACE and AMSTRAD models have had problems which annoyingly are not universal but tend to be model/revision specific, it's that unpredictablilty that makes saying box A is the best so difficult:)

    I have a V1 and V2 machine.
    IMO, the V1 machine IS better. Its better built and quieter.

    I also prefer the styling of the original box, as it matches normal sized AV gear.

    To be honest it doesn't really matter what model you get. If it works then its good, the nightmare scenario is when you keep getting refurbished (not fixed) models as replacements. I think if the refurb you get is one with a definite prev failure you're ok, the problem is if it had an intermittent (difficult to reproduce) fault and it just goes back into the loop.
