For this particular transmission you do need to be able to receive HD. On at least one occasion an HDR update has been done on the standard engineering channel available in non HD areas. On past experience it will be available for download from the Humax web site before long.
damn i'm away for the weekend from 7am tomorrow leaving her at home, what will the box do left in her less than capable hands. i obviously want the update to happen but am concerned that the box is rendered unuseable both from watching recorded items and also still recording what its meant to over the weekend?
am i right in thinking that if the box is not put into standby then it wont update??
not back til monday eve, when i think it'll all be over, so looks like after all this wait i'm gonna bloody miss it!!
