    Good news. The Freeview 7 day epg is apparently being rolled out to transmitters across the country as I write this. :clap: :clap:

    I don't have it yet on my PVR8000T but others have reported that my transmitter Winter Hill is sending out the 7 day epg data and that their PVR8000T with the latest firmware works. I need to update the firmware from 08 to 11. I don't know when the OTA update is. The firmware is downloadable from the HSCA site but they have used a weird 3 pin RS232 connector on the back of the pvr.

    Does anyone know the pinout for the connector, I can then quickly make up a cable to do the update.

    :lease:

    Apparently Humax will send you a lead FOC. Not sure if this is true but might be worth a phone call.

    Thanks for the replies,

    I will probably just wait for the OTA.

    Just checked out the Pace Twin downstairs and it now has the full guide from Winter Hill, fantastic, very close to ditching Sky now.

    Ditch it, go on. It's like buying the Daily Mirror. you'll be a much better person without it.
