Freeview box software versions



I have a Pioneer DBRTF100 box. How do I know:

a) If I have the latest software? I can't see anything on the Pioneer site.

b) When any updates will be broadcast?

Also, would it be an idea to have a thread listing all the lastest software versions for Freeview STBs and when updates will be broadcast.

Matt. :)


MatthewS -

You can check your software version by going into the on-screen menu --> Setup --> Software Update --> Technical Information.

My box is currently running version 1.4, but I don't know if this is the latest. The manual update doens't find any later versions, but the link in AMcl's post has confused me slightly.

I would, like you, be interested in keeping my software as up-to-date as possible, but am not sure now to go about doing it. Maybe an e-mail to Pioneer would help, like AMcl suggests.

Hope this helps,



In my parents Thompson box, you just need to use the check for updates option in the setup menu.

If it's up-to-date, it will say so. I believe that all freeview boxes are due an update in the next couple of weeks.

A few months back, it started updating automatically during Neighbours.
