HD PVR update positively received

HD PVR Software update seems to have resolved many problems, but may cause reboot problems

HD PVR update positively received

Since the release of Multichoice’s HD PVR update last week the reports from users have been generally positive.

“Just did the upgrade. All I can say is what someone else said in another thread. Feels more responsive and the news and weather is available in the interactive menu,” said the forum user Quantum Theory.

“Installed on my HD PVR – must say I am pleased with the EPG response now – can view programs 8 days in advance as its supposed to have been – will definitely make more use of the scheduled recordings now,” forum user Adsl3g said,

The software update is currently available via a voluntary download and, according to Multichoice, a forced update for all HD PVR users will be instituted towards the end of this week if every goes well.

The update, among other factors, has improved recording reliability, loading times for TV guide data, response times when changing channels and has added interactive News 24 and Weather 24 channels.

Despite the general positive reception, some users have complained that their decoders are rebooting continuously after downloading the update. A Multichoice representative on the DSTv forum has provided a solution involving the removal of all four LNB tuners connected to the device and a specific reboot method.

A full explanation is available on the DSTV website: http://forum.dstv.com/showthread.php?t=2415
