I was given a Samsung FTA receiver (9400 FTA) by someone who upgraded.

After a scan of ASTRA 2 I deleted a bunch of transponders that

belonged to God and shopping, then pruned the channels down to about a

dozen that I would routinely watch (Beeb, ITV, etc.). The result is

fast, rock steady in any weather and I'm thoroughly delighted.

Now. Software updates. I look at ASTRA 2 (fixed) and the Samsung

uses OTA from ASTRA 1 Sirius and Hotbird. So, am I out of luck? Do I

care? Do software updates just keep the internal lists up to date or

do they patch software bugs, etc. If the former, I do manual scans

anyway. If the latter, I haven't found any problems.

In the background I can hear my departed father's voice saying, "Look.

If it ain't broken, don't try to fix it!" Is dad right?

Patches can allow you to watch some pay tv services (not Sky UK - they are secure.) Should you want to update the software you should be able to get the official s/w off the manufactures web site

However, if it does what you want it to do leave it alone.
