Last night, all the Humax boxes that I know of (Emma has one, her dad, my parents, my brother…), updated themselves over the airwaves, down that funny little old-fashioned aerial thingy.

And what an update? As well the addition of ‘tracked’ recording and series-link functionality, there are some lovely little improvements in navigation – including the addition of the actual Day in the programme guide. 😉

Is this post really, really, sad? But it works. Both Torchwood and Grand Designs started at two minutes past nine and the box kicked in just before the start. Okay, this post is very sad. Sorry about that!

It is a bit freaky that what is effectively the 21st century equivalent of a video recorder can upgrade itself, at night, when its on standby through radio wave frequencies. Scary…!
