      Maximum size of replacement hard drive

      Hi there,

      Upgrading to Sky HD next week. What is the maximum size hard drive I can put in the box? Has anyone had any success with 1.5TB or 2TB drives?

      Thanks for your time.

      i think the sky hd can handle 1tb, because it can. BUT amstrads/samsung? can take 1.5tb i think, but if not then copy+ can format it to 1tb which can be used
