Reg Hardware writer and IPTV specialist Nigel Whitfield suggests updating the firmware before you do anything else. You can read his recommendations on his Gone Digital blog.

Netflix launched its UK service earlier this week. Beyond a free trial period, the streaming package costs £6 a month.

Other gadgets are adding links to the service: WD's WD TV Live box got a similar Netflix-enabling update this week. ®
