BBC iplayer catch up

I got a letter about watching bbc iplayer on catch up on my sky+ box.  I set up the wired connection and it now shows sky programmes when I press the red button for on demand but doesn't show catch up.  I checked the version number of my box and your help forum says my box should already have it. Why can I not see iplayer?

Re: BBC iplayer catch up

My version begins with 4F31 so that is why I thought I should be able to access BBC iplayer as it says on your help page:

 

"If you have a version beginning with 4F31, then you have an Amstrad DRX890 orDRX895. You should already have the new Sky Guide."

 

Thanks

Re: BBC iplayer catch up

You should be able to download the new software to your box by doing this:

 

Switch off at the mains,

Press and hold the backup button on the Sky box

Switch on at the mains keeping the Backup button pressed

When all 4 LEDS light on the front of the Sky box, release the Backup button.

You should see an on screen message advising the software is updating.

I followed your instructions and it updated and showed me the video telling me how the on demand service worked but then when I pressed the on demand button I can still only see a list of programmes on sky channels and BBC iplayer still does not appear.
