    Hi everyone

    I have a Sky + box .....it's the mark one box (Because it has the SDI mod)

    Thing is I can't get the new menu screen...and therefore don't have the ability to get red of red dots etc. Anyone know how I can get the update...or if it is possible with this machine...

    Any help appreciated

    Hi.

    Try turning the box of at the plug / mains, press & hold the backup button whilst turning it back on. Don't take your finger off the backup button UNTIL the screen goes black and a message appears saying "updating system software". The online button on the front of the box will also light up.

    Once this is done (around 10mins), the box will go back into standby mode. Wait a few minutes then fire it up by pressing the sky key. This may take quite a few presses but be patient, it will come on.

    It's worth noting the software numbers through system details before / after upgrade!

    Good luck.

    Cheers,

    Simon
