    Hi folks, I'm sure I have seen this asked before but can't find it so need to ask again. I have a sony sky box that I bought a year ago as a spare and want to use it now but suspect the firmware is way out of date so could someone advise of a way to force an OTA update.

    Hi zapata,

    The site below gives forced downloads. Click on the website. Then on the first page click on "Free Information" at the beginning of the first paragraph. Then on the new page under "Sky Technical" you will see Forced Downloads. Click on that and it will tell you what to do. It looks easy. Hope it works for your box.

    The box has had it. The download should only take ten minutes.
