Common problem I'm afraid, it may get better with time....What version of software does it have at present?

You're still on the old version of software and doing a forced download will not necessarily help, in fact it may overwrite an already cached new version, just a straightforward disconnection from the mains and a reconnection after 30 seconds or so may well initiate the upgrade. If this doesn't work, then its a case of waiting and its not guaranteed that it'll cure the problems.

It would appear that all of the other makes of digibox, those other than Pace, Amstrad and Panasonic, will get new software during the course of this week. Hopefully that will resolve your problems.
