Sony KD-28DX40 Integrated Digital TV and the Digital Switchover

I know this is nothing about software development, but hey…  We have the Sony TV above and it doesn’t work now the analogue signal has been turned off.  The south west of England switched over to digital on 20th May 2009.

I have spoken to Sony support and apparently, the TV is now out of date.  The software in the TV tuner is too old. Please see http://sonycic.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/sonycic.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=369&p_created=1216219189

The only solution is to buy a new set-top-box for the TV or buy a new TV.

The TV is only 6 ½ years old!!  It’s already obsolete!  Thanks Sony.
