EchoStar may from time to time release new software updates for your product.
There are 3 simple ways to get software updates:
- Over the air via the satellite signal.
- Via the Internet.
- Manually download from myechostar.com.
Updates are normally made Over-the-Air (OTA) via satellite so your unit receives these updates automatically. A pop-up message will be displayed on your TV screen whenever an update has been received.
Software updates are also available via the Internet. It is therefore recommended that you connect your HDS-600RS to the Internet via your broadband router. When an update is available, a pop-up message will be displayed on your TV screen. All you need to do is follow the instructions to install the update. Please note that you must have an active and stable Internet connection to successfully receive the download. After the download appears to have been completed, please check to see if the latest version is registered in the menus (how to check software version). If your first attempt was not successful, please try again at a later time of the day - due to network loading at peak times, updating over the Internet may occasionally take longer than is expected.
Alternatively, you can download the latest version of software from Support section and manually download it to your product using a USB Flash Stick. For detailed instructions, please consult the User Guide.
