HI MATEY - I have a thompson hdd box that does the same. Rather annoying is'nt it! At least I get the chance to cancel the upgrade if i'm viewing at the time. However i usualy power the box off when i get too brassed off with it - though this in itself can also be a bind. I am not familiar with your box.Have you checked the setup menus to see if there is a turn off software update option? Good luck - keep me posted how you get on.:)

Try looking in your menu and system configuration.
