Here is how to fix Gotv decoder software update error (Code=SIG) which appears on many Gotv decoders where automatic update fails.

It happened to me. My Gotv decoder has been notifying me of updates and when it counts down to the update page, it only fails saying:
Update Error (code=SIG)

To resolve this, I called Gotv help center and they directed me as follows:

1. Remove the Gotv decoder power cable
2. Press down the P+ button on the decoder
3. While pressing down the P+, plug in the power cable and hold P+ down till CODE appears on your TV blue screen
4. Now release the P+ button
5. Immediately press in sequence: P- twice and P+ twice (that should show as 0011 on the CODE spot.
6. Wait till the blue screen proceed to FORCE UPGRADE and begins upgrade download.

Force upgrade screen


That should do it.

Ensure you pressing the correct buttons. Also, it may not be blue screen, but what matters is that it shows the CODE [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] at the top.

The last stage is wrong.
It is P- P- P- P+.
