    Pace box received upgrade last night, didn't notice any change, what did it do?

    Rescanned for channels, got 23 but don't think any new ones.

    Will E4 ever be available on the Pace?



    Cheers

    I never got an upgrade.... just tried it now and it said "no new version available" :( What's going on? :confused:

    It's supposed to add interactivity. Try using teletext and BBCi now! What's Ch 23 showing up as on yours?

    E4 is a pay channel!!!!

    BBCi is just a black pace logo whereas teletext displays 'this channel is unavailable'

    Haven't noticed any extra channels, do you have 23?

    I asked about E4 as the tv guide listed programmes for it, strange.

    ^Are still there at the end, can't find anything different, update started about 7.30 last night while watching tv.

    Cheers

    Sounds like interactivity is not enabled then :(

    I've just checked my product data and my software is now version 1.8.48 build June 5 2002. :D It must have updated last night while I left the box on and was watching a DVD. I missed it :(

    Will do a channel scan now to see if I've got 23.....

    I still don't have Ch 23. What's it called? It might be that I can't pick it up with my aerial. I haven't got E4 listed in the channel guide either, so maybe Ch 23 is E4?

    Interestingly, I don't get the sign anymore saying that Teletext and FourText and BBCi are unavailable. I just have the Pace logo on all of them.

    Something weird is going on :confused:

    It is probably just an interim upgrade (stability, etc). Guess we have to wait a little longer for the interactivity :(

    Oh i see!!

    I interpreted what you wrote as something else :blush:

    Get this....

    I have 25 channels - but I had these before the upgrade :eek:

    I have 3 test channels after '.' and '..' (901, 904, 907). Are these the extra ones you don't have?


    Just got this from the Pace web site:

    "Please note that access to interactive services will be available from July 2002."

    Guess we have to wait a bit longer :(

    Ok. You're not missing anything. The BBC are just transmitting BBC1 on one of them and test signals on the other two. Can't say I ever watch them ;)
