      no on demand and can't force update?

      Hi,
      I have a Samsung HD box and don't seem to have on demand. I tried to force update (currently on 47.0.16.1) but nothing seems to happen after pulling power lead, holding backup on box, then reinserting lead? Am i doing something wrong?
      Thanks

      It is still being beta tested at the moment, (for Pace and Samsung boxes) therefore manually downloading it will not work at the present time.

      There is no firm release date, but it cannot be far off.

      Oh I thought I read that Samsung boxes should now have the On Demand feature? Is my version the latest?

      Samsung and Pace and some Amstrads are still being beta tested, we cannot say a lot about it, as a lot of us on here are still under an NDA but it is definitely not out for normal customers at the moment.

      I have no idea what the version was before it was upgraded, maybe someone else can let you know.

      Re: no on demand and can't force update?

      Before receiving the Beta, I had R003.047.29.00P, with a Version 973004 box, so it looks like you may be a bit behind. It is possible different version Samsung boxes have different EPG numbers, but I don't really know. It is also possible the upgrade has been taken off stream, pending the release of the new version.

      You will not get the On Demand section until you get the latest EPG version, which as NR says, is not far away.
