Old Card / New Sky+ box

Guest
My old (!?) Sky+ has died, well enough for me to buy a new one anyway, I think it is only the hard drive knackered, but it was noisy anyhow.
is it fairly straightforward to marry a new box with the old card?
SKY would like to releive me of 25 quid for the pleasure of an 'Engineer' to call.........................in about 3 weeks!
Thanks

No problem with marrying the new box Swills, just phone up Sky and tell them the serial number, you can however replace the hard drive, there is another thread about this, I believe that they are a Maxtor.
