Hello and thank you for your question. I look forward to assisting you today. Does the TV give you the option to download the update directly?

Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

This might be easier for you. Go to this LINK and download the update and copy it to a USB thumb drive. Insert the drive into a USB port on the TV and the update should start automatically. Let me know if you need further assistance.
