    According to http://www.dtg.org.uk/retailer/download_schedule.pl the 2.36 (i.e. the 7-day guide) version of the viera EPG is supposed to be available this weekend.

    I don't seem to be having any luck, my set is sitting there reporting that it's got E10_2.26 and that it's up to date!

    :lease: Could someone tell me if I'm doing anything wrong here

    - Set is displaying Freeview BBC1 (DVB ch. 1)
    - Signal strength is 9
    - 'New Service Message' is set to ON

    I even tried a 'shipping condition' reset yesterday and retuned everything but still no joy. :suicide:

    I've left the set on and displaying Beeb 1 for a couple of hours at a time but don't seem to get any update messages - has anyone else received the update this weekend?

    Thanks

    Perry

    Ashlar, are you trying the same way as me?

    Has anyone got it this weekend? Or, if you received it during a previous transmission, have we got the process correct?

    Thanks

    Yes. I have tried all the things you have tried. I suspect it isn't being broadcast as planned - does anyone know?

    The EPG only provide Now and Next program information at release 2.26. At 2.36 it provides program listings for 7 days. Don't what else 2.36 provides.

    I tried the above - still no update message. I will have to check with Panasonic support to see if the update was broadcast.

    Thanks anyway.

    I got my dealer to update mine which took him about 5 minutes using a PCMCIA card plugged into the back of set.

    The DTG website is showing the Panny Viera update being available again between 10am on Wednesday Feb 2nd and 9am on the 3rd. So try again tomorrow. :)

    The update between Monday and Wednesday this week is for the Panny DT** range.
