    I'm running openatv 5.1 and thought it was about time to upgrade to 5.3. I assumed the best way to do this was to download the image, and in effect start from scratch, including reloading all the plugins I have on.

    However, I've noticed on the menu under Software Management an option Software Restore, which takes me to image upgrade assistant. This wizard allows me to backup my settings, and then I get this screen.

    I'm not sure what it means by needing a PC connected to the Zgemma - I can ftp in if that's all it means. I can't find any extra information on opena.tv.

    If I click on "Yes, shutdown now", will this actually find the latest online image itself, and will all my plugins be automatically restored? What do I do on my PC? Do the update instructions actually exist on opena.tv?

    Anyone used this wizard, or is there a guide somewhere?

    Open WB Config, move down to the green dot next to system messages and press OK. This will then stop the system message message appearing.

    You can do the software updates even though it warns you, I did them all tonight in the Amber status, however, you will be safer to do them when the status is green on the software update page.

    If you are running WooshBuild you already have OpenATV 5.3 on your box as that is what WooshBuild is setup on.

    To make a complete backup:
    Blue button -> Complete Backup -> Red to backup to rear USB, or put a USB in the front and press Green.
