Hi Andy
Firmware
is a term sometimes used to denote the fixed, usually rather small, programs that internally control various electronic devices. you can get updates from the web..try the chatterbox.cc

You will in time need to re-new your codes..as they change as you have the starview 4 that might not be for some time (but don't hold me to that lol)

If I can be of more use to you just get back to me and I will do my best.

    Hi.
    You will probably notice that you start losing channels or need to update / re-scan more often..if you download the chatterbox tool bar you should be able to download the updates / fixes...just follow the instructions.
