Foxtel - remote codes?

Recommended Posts

We recently had our Foxtel IQ box replaced due to a fault.

 

I was on the phone while he was there so only half watching what he was doing. I saw him use the remote to bring up a configuration screen not like any of the screens normally available through the menu. It gave him the ability (it seems) to upgrade the firmware as the the box did indeed appear to download and install a file, before rebooting.

 

Was I seeing things? Or are there service codes that you can enter to access hidden menus or do firmware updates?

I can't hotlink it directly due to forum rules, but the austech dot info forums are the place to ask this question.

 

They're a genuinely great bunch of dudes there and they'll sort it out for you :)

The firmware download thing can be done without access to the service menus, by pushing a certain button combo while resetting the box.
