    Sky Digibox - Forced Software Update

    I have recently acquired an old Pace 2600 Digibox which has Version 3.3 Software and I want to force an update, but my signal on the default Frequency (11.778) is not very strong at any time. Can I use another frequency, such as 12.207 or 12.129 or is the default frequency the only one that transmits the updates?

    Hello and welcome.

    The updates are on 11778.
    But when they do an automatic update they send the signals over a spread of frequencies.
    Best to do the manual update when 11778 is at its strongest - early am or late at night.

    Even now (9am) I am getting 11778 on an 80cm dish (Gandia) - so if you have a bigger dish (like a 1.8m dish) and not getting the 11778 frequency then it may need realigning, as evemn on a 1.8m dish you should receive 11778 for pretty much all day (maybe not at its weakest time of 4-5pm)

    But Pace 2600 updates can take a while - i did one recently and gave up manual updates and just left it turned onto Sky news and after 3 weeks it updated utomatically.....the updates are not always available for all boxes at all times so you may be waiting for a while to do a manula update.
