Found 13th Dec 2017
Hi

i purchased one of the cheap cctv deals from heartbest and need a sata hdd drive for it.

ive got sky q due to be installed, does anyone know if it will have a sata drive or ide? It’s about 6 years old, but don’t know what make it is. Think it’s a 500gb model.

thanks

Hi Dan, if it is a normal Sky HD box it will be a sata drive most likely. Remember that these drives are partitioned up a fair bit. You would need to clear all partitions and write the new config onto the drive and reformat to whatever format you need.

Hope that helps.
Yes, It will have a sata hard drive in, just put in the CCTV DVR and format it from within there

Agree - re. sata and auto format. I've stripped several HDs from Sky (and Virgin boxes) boxes - you will end up having to tear the box apart as they are not built for maintenance. Careful of your fingers as you end up with some sharp edges,
