    Hi

    Can anyone out there advise me how you upgrade the above freeveiw box. I have checked the tecnical data and have been advised that providing you keep the software upgrade on , it should automatically upgrade.

    Mine does not appear to have done this and i am wondering what i am missing out on! Has anybody else had the box with software version April 2001 and managed to get it upgraded to the latest spec ? Is there any noticeable difference ?

    Colin

    press menu on the remote

    goto tech info then manufact info

    currently mine is software version 1.11.01u
    it was updated about 3 weeks ago. you just have to leave it on a bbc channel at the times the update is broadcast and it is done automatically. takes about 5 mins.

    i dont know when the next update is being scheduled

    Thanks for that MAtty ! - I was in lanzarote over that period of time which is sods law! - Shame they do not know the actual next date of broadcast.
    I actually visited that website soon after i bought the sony but there was no mention then! - I will regularly visit now.

    Thanks again.

    Dont have any of those problems
    thats reception not software .The update was to allow you to remove unwanted channels ie top tv Also to do some repairs to the EPG. To me none of that warranted the upgrade as it created a fault in the av switching from vcr. Personally I would not bother that you are not on it as it does not improve picture etc, which I found excellent from day one back in december.
    Cheers
