I have ordered & 160 gb hard disk drive and was wondering how many hours recording i would have on it for movies And do i need a USB stick to add more memory to the db or is the hd enough. Cant seem to find A USB DB compatable stick on D box websites, as from reading some wont work with the dbox.

Don't know of any USB sticks that don't work. Didn't bother to check and the ones I have tried are OK.

The 160 GB hard disk will give you 80 hours of recording.

If you add images to the HD or move the var files then this will reduce the recording time.

Especially the multiboot section.
