SKy + Manual Firmware Update Question


Standard Member
Hi all.
I hope someone can help with my question.

I am wondering whether if I do a manual update of my Sky+ firmware/software is it likely that I will get the new EPG?? I have an Amstrad A2P0802, using Operating System Version 1.31B11 and EPG Software Version 5.08.6
I understand that Sky are gradually rolling it out to all customers, but I get kind of impatient when new stuff is due to me, lol..

Also, if I do the manual upgrade, will I lose all my currently recorded programmes?

Thanks in advance.

You won't lose any recordings but I'd you have a white sky+ box then it won't look any different. Sky ceased all EPG development for Sky+ boxes years ago. Is it a sky+HD?


Hi and welcome to the forum.
I don't recognsie that machine at all but it's obviously an old one and you could have a new replacement for little or nothing.
