      For anyone that doesn't know how to do a forced update.

      1) Kill the power to the box (remove the plug)
      2) Hold down the backup button on the box
      3) While keeping the backup button held down, restore power to the box
      4) Still keeping the backup button held down, wait for the 4 indicator lights to illuminate on the front of the box and the software update message to appear on the screen.
      5) Release the backup button, and wait 10 minutes or so for the download to complete (I recommend turning off your TV while this takes place to avoid screen burn)

      Oh - was it a joke lol ?

      (I knew you had to press a button on the top at some point)

      Or did you mean that the button is labelled as 'force download' ?

      I meant there was an actual button..... as a joke. I was waiting for the responses of 'where, I can't see one'. Oh well. Back to the wine.

      Oh dear, you'll have to get someone to get some more win in for Friday then.

      ...or you could just pop over to Ged's and get some from him
