Couple of days back there was some software upgrade I guess. After this upgrade Menu/UI has completely changed on for Airtel Digital TV STB.
And there are 2 new features
- STB now supports external Hard disk through USB, so now STB becomes Recorder.
- VOD and Catchup service has been added. (By catchup TV Service, we can watch old programmes broadcast on various channels)

I have not yet tried above services, but I am planning to buy new hard drive for using with recorder service. I hope its free.

VOD/Catchup TV Service

DishTV was first to introduce this feature. And VOD was brought by Tata Sky. Now Airtel has got both features :)

Interesting! I haven't received it yet. Anything you need to do to get the update?

You can try manual update by following the procedure:

*First Switch on your TV

*Then switch on the STB {If your STB and TV has the same terminal then remove the power card wire from The back side of STB}}

*now after switching on the TV Switch on the STB
*Now it will Say ""Please Wait Initializing...""

*IMMEDIATELY PRESS EXIT BUTTON TWICE

*NOW QUICKLY PRESS 2465 FROM YOUR REMOTE

A minimum capacity of hard disk is 80 GB and for VOD minimum capacity is 8GB.I think it is too much.I want to use only my 2GB pendrive,just for recording 1-2 hour prog.
