First you need to confirm your city and then the type of STB that you are using.

If you are in the Western zone, then pl ensure that the STB is correctly tuned to S21M frequency.

for further help, pl email [email protected] with your card no.

What is the release number? Latest release number is 103.

When the status of software download is "aborted", it means, there is no software upgrade in the near future. When they are about to release a new version of the software, the status changes to "Idle".

If it shows aborted, it means your software is up to date.

If you still want to update the software manually then follow the below steps. Please make sure you don't repeat this often as software might get corrupted
1) Turn off the STB by removing the power plug.
2) Turn the STB on
3) When you see the message "Please wait Initializing" then press back button twice and press 2 4 6 5. This will start software download.

Please don't do it if your release number is already 103.

In this box Please wait Initializing appears only for few seconds. Don't turn off the TV but only turn off the STB and turn it on and you will be able to see it.

hd box software download status has changed to idle so expect a new software very soon and noticed today all HD channels have a transparent hathway logo at bottom of the screen hopefully recording should be activated through usb in this software upgrade
