There are two ways to update the software:

 

1. Via the Menu settings. This is the simplest method. Your TV will need a stable Internet connection.

2. Via a USB stick

3. Select Software Update

 

Note: if this area is greyed out it could be because the TV has just been switched on (wait a minute, then try again) or because the TV is in Smart Hub mode. If you are accessing through Smart Hub mode, try going in again after viewing a channel from its own tuner or from an eternal source such as Sky.
