      activation advice please

      a couple of weeks ago my 2 year old amstrad sky+ HD box showed the message one morning that its software had been updated.
      sure enough i now have the network tab and have enabled broadband and connected an ethernet cable from the box to my sky router etc etc. no anytime+, so i logged into mysky.com and i still have the message that my box is not yet compatible but will be soon.
      i called sky who told me that my software update was a darwin update model number: sysf32.22 (which only determines that my box is eventually suitable for anytime+) and that i need to wait for this to change to 26.59.01 (or similar).
      is this the case please? they could give me no indication of when the next update may be.
      is there anyway to force this update or has anyone any idea when the next software update will eventually be sent??
      thanks.

      You now have the required update, but others are also in the same situation as you are: No Anytime+

      Someone else has reported on this site that it is likely that Sky will turn on the anytime+ feature on the Amstrad DRX780s over this weekend, so please be patient.
