      Let's hope that if this is the case Sky will provide customers with a financial incentive to upgrade to the latest box.

      Have they not set a precedent with the Thompson boxes?

      I believe that Thomson accepted that there was a design flaw with their Sky boxes and that there was a substantial financial settlement.

      All I know is that the team working on these are still working hard to fix the issues reported and get the new features on them.

      Whether or not Sky would give up and go down the same lines as the Thomson STBs is purely speculative.

      @Scubbie
      Do you know if there is a Beta group for the older boxes? I was on the previous one, but have not heard of the group being revived or a new one being set up.

      I've just taken the off chance to see if the latest update is on the DR stream and it is I have the DRX895 1TB box and I've just updated it 5 mins ago looks as though the update is only for the DRX890 & DRX895 1TB & DRX895 2TB

      Thank you for your eagle eyes. I have updated the table in the first post

      I was aware that the update was going to be released onto the DR Stream this week. I didn't have a time/day though.

      Reported on digital spy forum today that people have had an update on the Amstrad DRX595 to Firmware R006.58.63.00P from R006.58.60.00P. I can confirm that Firmware R006.58.63.00P is now available via the DR Stream as I have just updated my box.
