    I don't have any real knowledge of these boxes, but I don't think you will lose anything
    Just to be on the safe side write down your line details.
    From the look of the update you can set your box to auto update, buy I'm sure someone with more experience of your box with know for sure

    Go to Downloads and download file 81.
    Format a usb key to fat32 and add the downloaded file.
    Go to a fta channel eg BBC1 and put the key into rear of box---then go to menu--tools and upgrade by usb
    Reboot box and remove key then go menu--network settings--upgrade by network---connect to server---now, you can fully upgrade firmeare and channel list without a key.
