Polk MAGNIFI MAX SR firmware and issues

Hi, is there any way that you can force a firmware upgrade, mine doesn't appear to want to update at night even though it is all connected up.( currently on 103 ), the reason for my update request is that the surround speakers have a chirping sound when there is voice activity on teh tv an dit also makes a chirping noise during use....any assistance appreciated, Thanks ( only had the unit 2 days so can return if no joy )

    I mean this is the trouble shooting forum so one would think most of the posts would be problem oriented...........

    Have you tried below ?

    Unplug power from sound bar, subwoofer and surrounds

    a) Plug in sound bar

    b) Wait for sound bar to boot – the orange LED will stop blinking and turn off

    c) Press Power button on the sound bar – furthest right LED should illuminate Orange

    d) Press Mute on the bar – LED should now pulse white indicating Mute

    e) Plug in subwoofer and surrounds and confirm the LED on the back of the units is solid green

    f) Wait about 10 seconds.

    g) If there is an update available, the furthest left LED should begin pulsing white indicating the update has started and the LEDs will gradually fill in and show the progress of the update. (If there is no update available, there will be no additional LED activity and indicates everything is up to date)

    h) The update can take up to 10 minutes

    i) When the update finishes, the furthest right LED will turn green and then all of the LEDs will go Off after about 10 seconds

    j) At this point, the update has completed and sound bar is ready to use.

    k) Power on the sound bar and play 5.1 content to confirm everything is working properly and there is sound coming out of the bar, sub and surrounds.
