    Sky+ HD upgrade

    Hello.. Im upgrading to sky+ HD on friday.. (all free by the way)
    Was just wondering if there was an easy way of copying recorded programmes from mu current Sky+ box to the new box i get??
    Or is it just easier to just cram a load of TV watching in before the swap?

    Thanks in advance

    WTF is that?!

    You could either copy stuff to a dvd recorder, watch it all before you get the new box or, just connect the outgoing one back in once the new one is installed and watch it. It's your box, so can plug it back in if you want.

    Makes me feel a bit better about deleting the 20 or so In the night gardens recorded if its to much hassle to transfer them lol..

    the wrong link :oops:

    lets try that again ]http//ww…s-p

    I just remembered that SKY often repeat stuff, so you could delete stuff that comes on often so that you could prioritise your viewing before you get your new box?

    EDIT: I'm sure In The Night Garden is on all the time lol, that's gotta go

    Copy+ is a powerful freeware program that allows you to backup and transfer your Sky+ and Sky HD hard drives. It has been featured in The Guardian, PCW magazine and What Satellite magazine.

    The ONLY product on the market that can do this, Copy+ can also copy between previously incompatible box models AND will work around Sky limitations on maximum hard disk sizes. Now you can take your box to 1TB



    As stated you can copy your recordings without having to delete or try and watch them!
