Gents, once you have downloaded the file there is a ZIP file in there that tells you what to do, it's fairly simple so just follow step by step and all will be ok. One point to note, where it says press the buttons, you need to use the buttons on the actual soundbar and not the remote (ERRRR or it may be the other way round, I can't remember now, but only one way worked)


INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING.
Upgrading your Soundbar is easy, but for the upgrade to work properly, it is important to carefully follow the instructions below. The entire upgrade procedure may take up to 20 minutes, and once it begins you must complete the entire process in one session. Please allow sufficient time to complete all the steps.
How to upgrade:
1. Place the new software file “JBLBAR.BIN” on a completely empty USB memory stick, formatted in FAT-32.
2. Power on the Soundbar.
3. Switch the Soundbar source to USB. You will see a purple LED light up at the left side to indicate this input.
4. Insert the USB stick into the USB input on the Soundbar. The USB source LED will flash quickly when the Soundbar has detected the new software.
5. Press and hold the POWER and VOL- buttons for more than 3 seconds, until the USB source LED begins to flash slowly. Upgrade now begins. DO NOT POWER OFF THE SOUNDBAR WHILE SOFTWARE UPGRADE IS IN PROGRESS, AS THIS MAY DAMAGE THE UNIT!
6. The USB source LED will keep flashing during upgrade, which will take about 14 minutes. Once the upgrade is complete, the Soundbar will restart itself.
Congratulations, your Soundbar is now upgraded to the latest software version.
If you want to check the software version, switch the Soundbar input to Bluetooth, then point the remote control at the Soundbar and press the Night Mode button for more than 5 seconds. The Soundbar will inform you of the software version with a voice message.

Showing as £149.98 for me, is there a code or different link?
Likewise. Also, it's used stock. Only 30 watts too.

I'm guessing as it is meant an 'Employees Only' deal, BT have got wise and rectified the mistake.
I got one of these Free when I joined BT mobile end of last year, actualyl quite good but you will need to install a firmware update on them as there is a very annoying delay in audio on quiet periods of films. a quick google will explain the issue

Simple fix - emailed JBL and was sent a zip, copy to USB, follow the process and away ya go - much better (still not perfect)

Hi, is this just on bluetooth or hdmi and optical?
Tru.Faith31/03/2020 16:02

Probably sold out now.


I have spoken to customer services and they said that all the stock (probably not many) must have been sold as not showing on their system. RS and Amazon have them for £99

I was going to buy from CeX grade A @ £55 then this was posted . So saved £15 thanks OP.

all connections as far as I can tell / read
23 left in stock.....
Thanks OP, my Panasonic budget HTB8 sound bar arrived yesterday, ok! It was £40 but with all the reviews I thought it would be semi decent, it went straight back in the box and is getting returned it was so poor, 8 couldn’t believe how bad it was, seen this and hopefully this will prove to be a much improved upgrade.
By the way, it is still £59 if you go through pumpkin157 hyperlink, great price, think the £149 original price a bit exaggerated though.

Many thanks for this, awaiting the delivery now =)
Delivered and installed yesterday. Definitely better than standard TV speakers but would've been disappointed if I'd paid full RRP.
Make sure you install firmware update as described above to prevent speaker muting during quieter periods. E.g. between sentences in dialogue.
