Totally agree ,it was the same with the broadband ,we now keep an engineer in the wardrobe .......its time these forums had a couple of engineers on instead of all these perspiring experts .........GOOD LUCK
Moan moan and more moaning ,you got the youview box next you will be wanting a picture as well ........
??? - My Youview box is working perfectly, so I can't grumble
it should also be mentioned that unlike bt vision box that could do 5.1 via the hdmi, you can't currently do this via the youview box - it can only do 5.1 via spdif
also the 5.1 is only available for on-demand stuff as currently under testing i've found it does not supply this for the freeview hd channels - i'm going to try the bt app so can give you further info
So the BT app can pump the 5.1 down the HDMI?
ok - here's further update for you all
BT App works on the latest firmware. the only issue i had was during the testing as was reconfiguring my sony av amp, so kept stopping and closing the bt app, this can then cause a problem when you try to resume a video you've just been playing
The BT app does play 5.1 audio, but only via the SPDIF connection - this is not a fault of the app, but with humax/youview not having full audio via the hdmi port (this is similar to Sky Boxes) - humax have this on my freesat box, so not sure why this has been missed on the youview box, especially as you get a 1.4 HDMI cable included.
On my Sony amp, the HDMI overrides the optical/coax inputs so was initially getting only LPCM 48bit audio showing - Had to force the amp to use OPT as default input, which then highlighted the DD 5.1 on my amp.
So if you are having issues try the above, the only option is to have the HDMI direct to TV and then optical to an amp
received the box (eventually) on Friday and expected it to update to the latest firmware straight away but no joy.
still trying the check for update and it still says I'm on the latest 7.10 which is clearly not the case.
can anyone confirm what is included in the new update other than spdif optical Dolby 5.1 out?
