    There are 6 screws on the underneath mate
    Unscrew them and the lift up the lips on the bottom of the box
    The box should slide out of the casing,it is a bit fiddlie if you have never done it before

    My BSKYB 3000 (Pace) box would not work without a HD fitted. The Pre test check on switch -on would come up with an error and not let me go any further. I got over it by fitting an old grotty HD then the pre test passed OK
