Alba have today finally released the long awaited software update 1.4.33 for their set top boxes manufactured under the brand names of Goodmans, Grundig and Bush the update allows access to the free to air channels that are not currently on the propriety freesat EPG (Electronic Programme Guide). The update is OTA (Over The Air) and is currently available now your set top box should automatically download this latest update.

Although this is a welcome addition it appears you can not do an auto scan for the additional channels and instead have to enter the frequency, polarization and symbol rate for each channel you want to add. This is hardly consumer friendly we would have liked to have seen a auto tune capability similar to the Humax FOXSAT01HD.

Its good news at least that channels can now be added.
I have a customer that just wants the sd budget version but would not buy because it didnt offer access to her crafts shopping channel which is free-to-air. I dont mind adding the channels manually and i'm sure auto-scan will be added soon.
Thanks for the info Rat.
