      Cool. Lets see how things go over the next few weeks. You should have the update soon.

      Re: Sky+ HD STB Firmware Versions

      Received the R6 firmware update on my DRX890 this morning and noticed a couple of extra holes in the firewall. Port# 49152 rejected my attempts to connect to it but the other on port# 4729 is running a lighttpd webserver which returned a 404 error as there is no default index page.

      Re: Sky+ HD STB Firmware Versions

      Hi All,

      Just a quick question. Noticed that my DRX890 is currently on version R005.053.70.11P, rather than 15P. Will the box update directly from this version to the new R006 version, or will I need to do a forced update to R005.053.70.15P first? Given that the box has been working fine for ages I'm not bothered about updating it to 15P if there is no need.

      Thanks in advance for any replies.

      All the DRX89x and DRX595 STBs are getting this version. If you have still got 11P then it should be fine and the update should arrive in the next few weeks.

      Maybe its me but i do feel like you have to wait forever for this update, is it right they are only updating these boxes once a week.

      I appreciate that many will also have to wait for the update.

      I do believe that the updates are only sent once a week. This is so that the call centres are not overwhelmed with the calls from customers who didn't know about the update and also from any potential customers who come across a problem.

      To the best of my knowledge things are going well and it should be completed somewhere around 14th-21st May.

      Usually they update Wednesday but I have heard reports of them updating twice a week, it is usually only once though. They are supposedly half way through the roll-out so people have only a few week to wait and hopefully it will them appear on the DR Stream.

      Its no wonder people are calling then if thats the case, would have thought twice a week for an update like this, and any bugs there should have would have been reported through the Beta testers which is now closed. How many people do the updates go to is it up to 1 million

      Re: Sky+ HD STB Firmware Versions

      The Beta Group have worked hard and any 'show killing' issues were picked up, identified and fixed. Whilst I appreciate that those outside the beta group do not seen this work, please let me assure you that they have worked hard for the past few months over this latest update.

      There is always a small chance that an issue can be missed which will affect a small group of Sky customers. With this in mind, it is deemed safer not to give everyone the update in one go.

      Those who visit the forums on a regular basis will have hopefully picked up about the fact that a firmware is being rolled out. With some 10 million Sky subscribers, I suspect that there are many more who will have no idea that it is coming and will therefore not give a hoot about the wait.

      There are a lot of Sky+ HD STBs in use by Sky subscribers. Add to this the SkyHD STB which was also updated this time around, that equates to a lot of boxes in different homes across the country.

      So far (touch wood) I haven't seen any major issues flagged on this forum or any major ones on the Sky forums relating to R006.58.60.00P. I think that this is a very good indicator that things are going well.

      Please note that I say 'major issues'. There are several lesser 'niggly issues' which have been identified and are being worked on.
