No. Only Virgin Media can instigate an update and they release the updates over their network region by region. Some areas get the updates a lot earlier than others in order to test the stability of them prior to then making them available to other areas.
I'd rather they concentrate on rectifying long standing issues with the V6 as opposed to introducing new features that aren't really all that useful.
Check in settings for version #, or, you will notice the difference anyway (FF is fixed and if you are on an SD channel when there is a HD version you get the message to press blue button to watch in HD.
