Strong 5290 UPDATE


This update will ONLY work with the 5290 with GAMES. If didn't get an email from Hantrex advising you of this update, then please make sure you have games on your box. If you pass this page on to friends, please make sure they have the box with games as well. Software for the non games version is in development.

This update contains revised:

* Time shift feature staying active after timer recording

* Fast forward / fast rewing stability issues fixed

* Disc icon to indicate recording active

You will need a null modem cable to perform this update.

If you’re in Melbourne and not confident doing the update, please bring the box to us and we’ll perform the update free of charge.

You do not need to perform the update if you’re happy with how your box is performing at the moment.

While you're here, please take the time to look around this site - you will notice quite a few additions since you purchased your box.

Additionally - we have a new SATELLITE TV site up and running now, www.australiansatellitetv.com is the address. It's a great introduction to the world of satellite TV.
