21 Apr 2018Engineering channel closes - RIP Over-Air-Downloads
The DTG have said "Just to remind you that after many years of faithful service, the Engineering Channel is being wound down by DTG Testing in preparation to fully close it on Monday 30th April 2018."

This is sad news for Vestel PVR owners as this means there is now no chance of ever receiving any over-air-downloads, which was traditionally the only method used to update the software on your boxes. Only the latest T7655 (Emerald) model is capable of receiving software updates over the internet updates, although recently Vestel removed all software from the update site so it is has not been possible to receive upgrades at all for the past few months. It is possible that the T7655 (Emerald) boxes may receive a software update soon, but you will need to connect it to the internet to get it.
