    Just bought a PVR800, and despite being told this was running the most recent software, it transpires that I clearly am not (have checked against by brother in law's machine).

    Does anyone know when the next OTA update is expected?
    If not, is there anywhere to purchase the necessary PC cable, and what should I be asking for? (and what port would I need on my PC.)

    Anyone?

    Thanks

    There are rumours of an OTA update some time in October, but Humax have not given a definite date yet. If you want to do it your self, there are a few threads showing 'how to'.

    The cable is made up of a special cable from Humax and a null modem cable. Contact Humax for their cable and buy a null modem cable from a variety of sources to complete.

    Or you could make your own cable that does the same job as the two above cables as shown here.

    In either case the cable plugs into a standard serial port on your PC.
