  1. can we download this software and update manually through USB...As my product is Inbuilt DTH TV (no separate DTH Box) & is in hanged state.

    1. I am not sure about that. But I think the upgrade should be provided with the TV software update it self. Also, if inbuilt DTH is in hanged state then better try resetting TV settings if not tried already. The best way to find out a solution is to contact the TV company's customer care irrespective of TV is under warranty or not.

  2. Thank you it worked.

    Tried all regular pin as 1234, 9999, 4321, 0000 etc. But none worked.
