    Yeah turn power of, hold down Backup button & at same time plug power in, hold the button down still until it says message on screen that says updating & also the 3-4 coloured lights show up on the front of the unit, then you can release tehe button & leave it to do its thing, it might not have the update available for it as yet, but try your luck mate.

    Aha, the backup button is on the top mate, where the NESW segmented buttons are, is it under a shelf by any chance which would not show these buttons, have a looky, if its samsung then forget it as upgrade isnt available yet.

    Sky have had issues with the new epg so they havnt rolled out to everyone as yet, but keep an eye on this site for news as they seem to know the most & more than sky at times, lol

    Check that thread & there's few others aswell related to the new epg upgrades & timing.

    Ha, forget Google (and Sky that matter). I was just thinking that mine hadn't updated and just sat messing about resetting and the likes - nada.

    Then I thought, aha, ASN.

    Thanks NHN you have answered what I couldn't find. The Sky site is poop for info on this. Guess I will have to wait it out as mine is Samsung. :(

    Coincidence or what? I don't think of this for ages and then I get a pop-up on the screen 'tuther night telling me that my new card is in the post. So will this mean the new GUI will be available when I boot the new card?
