By James Welsh

More Sky+ HD boxes received the new version of Sky's programme guide software this morning.
According to reports posted on the Digital Spy forums in the early hours of this morning, Sky+ HD boxes manufactured by Thomson with version number 4E3004 rebooted with the new software close to 4am.
38,000 boxes were the first to receive the new software on Tuesday, March 10. It is not yet known how many boxes were affected by this morning's release.

The new guide offers an optional mini-TV screen, programme information in the "now, next, later" banner for any programme on any channel for 12 hours, and integration of recording and series link setup functions into the main TV Guide screens.
