not a problem, i thank you for all your help, Maybe ill try to reinstall the shop channel and see what happens.
i've just been reading 40 something pages and all i did was ask a simple yes or no question :) heck, if someone could give me a post number or a link i'll go read it lol.
i've been reading and it is still unclear if i can down load it. i'm not a noob, i understand that updates=no softmod but what i'm reading, it appears it's okay to update it. like i said, it's unclear to me.
user made me tired now, time for a nap...
thanks i did read that post several times. just kept missing it.
