Sony DVB Upgrade

We have a separate Sony DVB terrestrial TV tuner, as our TV is too old to have one built in, and has only an old fashioned analogue tuner in.

When I got it, I set it up, and have pretty much ignored the configuration since then. However I forgot that they update themselves automatically over the DVB system from time to time. Mostly the updates are to add extra channels and such, nothing revolutionary at all. Yesterday I noticed that a new feature had need added, the ability to re-order the channel list - something I had wanted to do for a long while!

Digital TV has a bad reputation in the UK, because it was over-hyped at launch, and didn't deliver anything really new, but since the terrestrial service was taken away from ITV and given to the BBC it's made steady progress.
