Re: Firmware Update Today

Given the number of Vision customers still waiting for black box updates, should we really be surprised.

Well, yes we should as this is a YouView update, which should come direct from them. Talk Talk have their own box, and it appears with customisations unique to them, but as far as I am aware, our box is generic.

Re: Firmware Update Today

The generic boxes would hardly have the BT logo on the menu. When I first got the box there was no vision player, to access it you had to press the bt logo, then suddenly follwing a "players update" the vision player appeared alongside the others.

Re: Firmware Update Today

Yes the hardware is generic but the software is specific to BT as they have their own section on the YV menu. I'm guessing it needs to go through BT before being released to us mortals. Let's just hope it is sooner rather than later.

IIt seems the EPG will still not be searchable, so I am not desperate to get the "upgrade" anyway.

Given the mess they made of the Vision 2 software, we could be waiting a while. It would be nice if someone from BT would comment though!

Re: Firmware Update Today

Agreed SRB - the lack of any comment from BT suggests to me that it is not imminent.  Hope I am wrong.

Well maybe you don't but I do as I want the advertised Dolby Digital by S/PDIF to work and it is included in this update.

The box has a DD logo on the front and it is advertised on Youview's and BT's website and that it didn't work on release was a bit silly.

The box is the same YouView box as you can buy off the shelf. The YouView software is the same that you get if you bought the box off the shelf. Because we are on BT Broadband and have subscribed to their service, the box detects that and shows the BT logo on the menu. The Player is BT specific, but the YouView software is the same as everyone else's. How else can people buy the box themselves from a shop and access the BT content?
