[updated:LAST EDITED ON 28-Nov-01 AT 11:01 PM (GMT)]Android, which box is the new one and what software version is it showing compared to the old one? As far as i know the ctype of card has nothing to do with the software version, a box without a card should still have the planner I think. Unfortunately I have no way of checking this.
Could be right Android, what we need then is info from someone else who has only ever had a BBC card in their box, to see if they have a personal planner.
If you did the forced upgrade with the card in the box, try it without. It also may be that the box will automatically update whith the next scheduled transmission. I'm also not convinced that the forced update upgrades the EPG, i have a feeling that the update is for the operating software, so as i say above, you may have to wait for the update to the EPG.
My Panasonic (30 not 31) has for the past 2 years only had an FTV card in it. The Personal Planner function was implemented during that period. It works ok on my box (only funny is that somehow an invalid entry has got in - "Top Gear" from "Box Office" - which I can not get rid of... it seems to want to make a phone connection wwhen I try to remove it - and I have no phone connection).
My Panasonic box details:
Model No = 1.0.T
Version No = 0F0202
Operating System = 1.2S4Bc
EPG Software Version = 2.7bb.9*
2old your box has the same version operating software and EPG software as my "old" box that has the personal planner function.
Could it be possibly then that my box is just not carrying out the update. Perhaps it's going throught the motions - you get all the lights on, and the updating software message- but perhaps it's just not doing it.
Well it just worked for me W hole, if you pull out the plug, remove the card, leave off for a couple of minutes, plug in again, switch on without the card inserted, let it search for channels and the planner details should be erased. Then you can put your card back in.
If this doesn't work then try a forced update without the card in.
