      That's what i'm talking about.
      I've never had a single one of those cross-series links work for me, be it the latest top gear or gadget show etc etc.

      The actual problem for me though is / was that having had 'normal' series link work perfectly fine for as long as i can remember, the function went haywire immediately after the first R010 update which introduced the 'smart' version.
      The short story is that all of a sudden programme reminders & recordings were appearing in my planner that simply shouldn't have been there.
      Meanwhile, reminders & recordings for programmes that should have been weren't.

      TBF that madness did only last for about 2 months, however it still remains that the 'smart' aspect of series link has never worked on my box.

      To my knowledge, this latest .17P update is designed to tackle the 'no listings' issue which is the root cause of the other 'no series links' issue.
      I haven't read that it increases the IQ of series link, so will sit tight & see if the one in my box is still a bit confused or not.

      Having forced the .17 updates on both my DRX890 and DRX895W, they are both now much more responsive now. I no longer have to point the remote control directly at them both pressing buttons multiple times to get them to respond. I'd even reset the 890 as I thought it may have been another issue. Looks like it was .13 firmware that was the issue!

      I'm still noticing with .17P on the 890 box that some reminders/series link still isn't working. Sometimes I have to set it, other times it fixes itself. :s

      Have you tried going to Standby, switch power off at the plug, leave for a couple of minutes then switch on again.

      Yes, I have. It still remains. Some work, some don't. Some reminders change from night to day reminders.

      Re: Sky+ HD STB Firmware Versions

      The newest firmware revision has started to roll out from this morning.

      R011 is now starting to be delivered to your SkyHD and Sky+ HD STBs. Initially just the DRX595 and DRX89x models. I don't have the expected dates for the Samsung, Pace and Amstrad DRX780 models a this time, but please keep your eyes open.

      As has become normal for Sky, the roll out will be staggered with ever increasing numbers over time. Normally this has been 6-8 weeks for the DRX89x series.

      For more information on this latest update and somewhere to report any issues, please refer to the new thread on the update here:

      Ouch! Thank you for spotting that spike18_06.

      That'll upset a few people.

      I guess that updating your STB to a DRX89x model will be more important than ever before then.

      Well, it does give those who hate the new EPG an alternate, simply downgrade to one of the older boxes.
