11778V is the default transponder & carries the EPG & upgrade info.
You cannot upgrade firmware if this freq is not received.

But in your case you shouldnt have any problem getting the Freewiev channels if your card is matched to the box & authorised.

Keep trying Psats, how long is the update taking and are you getting the onscreen message? When you say "off", you are turning off at the mains?

Have you tried maybe without the card in it?Do the channels you still receive work okay,because if your dish is slightly out of alignment maybe it cant get the 11.778 signal.You could try changing the default transponder to 12207 V which is very strong and try again.

BBC1 will also work,leave the box switched on.
