    Was trying to watch Baby TV the other day (for the boy not me...). I put it down to the line!

    Have you applied it?

    Yep. Using it now.

    On the previous firmware the channels mentioned above were showing as scrambled, but the sound was still OK.

    They are now working fine on the new firmware.

    Cool.

    Was it scary or straight forward?
    Also do I need to put everything back on afterwards, channel list, sea-lion etc..

    All very straightforward.

    If you update by USB, you can select to keep DBS & settings. This will keep your gift & channel list intact.

    Does this update also fix the EPG BST time issue where it's out by 1 hour as a result of the recent clock change?

    I noticed the clock too. Is it not just a setting?

    Changing the setting via "System Setup -->EPG Default Setting --->Summer Time ON" don't do diddly sqat on mine although there is another more recent f/w floating about but i'm reluctant to try it and it's not available via the original .cc website, yet, maybe...

    That should be common sense really? Or is it a new patch?

    Got distracted last night, will apply the firmware tonight.

    It's new firmware that was put up on the site this morning.

    It works. The Internet (XMLTV) time is now correct.

    Well actually it's 2 minutes fast for some reason, but better than 1 hour LOL.

    Sooo.... (Apologies for the Q's) can I just apply this one and it will also fix the other channel issues?

    *EDIT*

    I see it is all combined. I also see I missed an EPG update in December! Certainly having a bash tonight.

    Right update on this.

    All applied flawlessly and the previously scrambled channels work nicely.
    However I am not 100% sure about the program guide.. Previously I would press the middle button on the remote to bring up a grid of the channels, now it is a list which is confusing.
    But, you can choose Kids, Movies, Sport and it seems to do it's thing nicely enough. However it is confusing when the channel numbers are 001 - xxx in each of those lists!

    Won't be long before I upgrade the box, but for now it is working and seems to be working better than before.

    If you want to see 3 columns of channels, press the M/P button, select "GUI config", select "Three".
