I would appreciate your assistance with a Freeview STB. Upon turning on the STB I get a dialog box reading "Information / Software Updating... / Please don't switch off power." After ten seconds the dialog box disappears and... nothing. A black screen (at least it's not a BSOD).
I have read this (locked) thread but it doesn't help:
I've had the STB for 18 months (bought second-hand) and this is the first problem that I have experienced with it. I could find no information on freeviewnz.tv indicating a recent OTA software update.
