      Re: Launch of the Sky+HD 2TB Box

      Excuse my ignorance here....I was so thinking of upgrading to a 1tb box...but obviously this has now caught my eye, i presume if I were to get this and needed to do a system reset for any reason the software in use would see the 2tb and not just the 1tb like previous incarnations.

      Hope that made sense.

      Doing a reset etc would make it like new, so you would have no issues, if that is what you mean.

      Does anyone have a price for the 2TB box for existing Sky+HD customers looking to upgrade?

      Might be worth a call to see what they offer.

      I spoke to them yesterday about potentially upgrading (existing customer with the HD pack), and they offered me a 1TB for 109. Assuming they are keeping the pricing for the 2TB version in line with what they had for 1TB then you could get a deal.

      That's odd.

      For a second Sky+ box in a home it's 49 for the box and 60 for installation. It's what I did with the 1TB box last week. Sadly the 2TB box wasn't available.

      Ahh, I just want a box replacement rather than a second box.
