Guess I could ask Tech Support but perhaps fellow GZ'er might have some gotcha's also.

 

 

 

I keep seeing messages on my T-Box that a new firmware release is available which fixes many problems. I am keen to update since the T-Box has some of the sluggish behaviour of any cable box I have used but 

 

 

 

1 - any gotchas

 

2 - actually how do you do it?

 

Thanks

1. Restart the box

 

2. Have a cup of tea while it finishes

I've restarted many times and it didn't install the firmware.

Best way is to power off at the wall/ power strip leave off for 30 seconds power up and go and have a cofee it shouldn't take too long

Thanks. Will try that. Have power cycled it several times when it's locked up but never waited that long.
