I'm sticking with this for a bit longer as I've found that if I switch it off on the rear and reboot it it usually works fine for the rest of the day. I have read that if you disable the auto update it doesn't lock up in standby but I don't put it in standby till I've done with it anyway. There is a recorded message on the helpline saying a new update is due on or before 5th Feb. I still have the old Philips On digital box hooked up to my HDD/DVD recorder in case I definitely don't want to miss something but it seems such a chore after the epg function on the new one where you just press OK and it's all done for you. I haven't heard any more on the swap but if the new update works I'll not need it anyway.
