      Re: Sky+ HD STB Firmware Versions

      Thanks for the good spot there spike18_06.

      The DR Stream was updated around 2pm today to support the newest version. I had just been reading about it going live elsewhere and checked here.

      It is also a small update for the DRX595 which I hadn't heard of getting the update until today, so this will also affect those owners.

      As for which version you will have, I believe that your STBs look at the DR Stream periodically and will update themselves if you don't manually do it. So there is not major reason for you to force the update if you don't want to. I don't know the time-line but would guess that all the DRX89x STBs and DRX595 STBs will update within a couple of weeks. This is just guess work.

      Re: Sky+ HD STB Firmware Versions

      Remind me please how to do that?

      Is it power on pressing backup until message appears on screen saying it is updating?

      Thank you. I've amended the table also to show that new version rolling out for the Pace STBs.

      My DRX780 updated this morning to R009.066.85.00P. Don't know whether it's on the DR stream yet and didn't want to risk a forced update in case it reverted back to R008.

      Are you sure it was .82.00P, it should be 85.00P as far as I'm aware.

      It's not on the DR stream yet.
      R009 only started to hit DRX780 boxes on 15th May.
