Pace was the first major manufacturer of Sky Digiboxes. Their first box was the BSKYB2200, released in 1998 at the launch of Sky Digital. Pace stopped manufacturing Sky units in 2010.

Pace boxes are widely regarded as one of the best quality Sky units available, with excellent performance and build quality. Issues with Pace units are rare.

Digiboxes

BSkyB 2200 TP2 (1998)

Version Number: 9F01XX
CPU Type: ST20-TP2
RAM: 4 MB

This is where it all started for Sky Digital hardware. These boxes were the earliest to be installed, and were often used on installations close to the launch of the service. Generally reliable, but known for tuner and PSU issues.

BSkyB 2200 TP3 (1998)

Version Number: 9F02XX
CPU Type: ST20-TP3
RAM: 4 MB

This is a second revision of the Pace BSkyB 2200, with a slightly improved CPU. Other than that, extremely similar to the TP2 revision.

BSkyB 25000S3 (2001)

Version Number: 9F05XX
CPU Type: STI5512

This was the first STI5512-based box from Pace, which bought significant performance improvements. These boxes are generally reliable and are small and compact.

BSkyB 1000 'Sky Minibox' (2002)

Version Number: 9F09XX
CPU Type: STI5512

Only built for a year and offered as a Multiroom box, the 1000 is considered one of the most sought after Sky Digiboxes of all time. This is because it has a 12v power supply connection, something that no other Digibox utilised. These boxes also had a severe yellowing issue on their casing,

DS430N (2004)

Version Number: 9F0AXX
CPU Type: STI5517

One of the best Sky Digiboxes available, with no major issues, strong tuners and extremely fast performance, all packed within a small and compact size. These boxes make fantastic FTA units to this day.
