    Sky+ install is scheduled for Monday. When I asked the CS rep which digibox will be installed , He said to speak to the installer... :confused:

    Assuming I'll have a choice , Which box to go for? Make , model , etc would be very helpful.

    Also , How can you tell if it's V1 or V2?

    Cheers,

    Lapman.

    Under normal circumstances you won't have a choice, the installer will give you what he has in the van.
    The V1 hasn't been produced for about 18 months, there are no new brand new sealed units in SKY's supply chain, the only v1's supplied now turn up as refurbished units. You will receive either a brand new PACE v2 or the new Amstrad variant.

    install was completed as scheduled today. digibox is a new Amstrad DRX180 PVR2.

    1. Is it the V2 box? Is it better than the Pace?
    2. OS ver 1.3.0BH
    3. Sky+ ver 1.26.v3
    4. Noticable problems:
    - voice sometime doesn't work when changing channels. you need to change to another one to get it back.
    - very slow moving between channels.

    5. Are these problems likely to go away once the ver. is updated?
    6. Any way of updating manually?

    Cheers.

    Lapman.

    You will notice it is a lot slower moving between channels, if you have just upgraded from Sky. Probably something to do with the autorecord. You get used to it after a while.
