Just plugged in my new box and I have

Operating 1.28.d
EPG Sky +1.31A08.

My friend has

1.31 AOE
EPG sky + 1.30.q
Should I just leave my box plugged in or do I need to force an upgrade and can I do it with out a card.

The latest Sky+ software is reported to be buggy and cause problems. Id advise to stay on the old s/w as long as you can!

O.K, I forced a download and took the risk, every thing is up to date now but I noticed thet the box is running hot and I can't see a fan in the back like my friends. Is this going to be a problem considering this box is going to live in Egypt.
