Incomplete firmware update

If the connection is interrupted while the new firmware is being downloaded, note that the downloaded content might be lost if the connection cannot be recovered via the box.

For example, if the connection is interrupted while 50% of the firmware are downloaded, the process might be canceled. In that case you have to click firmware update on the user interface to restart the process. It is still possible to do manual firmware updates via USB stick.
