I have a general question about how BT Smart Hub firmware updates are delivered. Do you have to be on a BT network for them to be delivered?
I understand that the BT Smart Hub is locked to BT, however it is still possible to use it as a general Wireless Access Point with use in conjunction with a seperate VDSL modem, to use with a differnet ISP.
If this was the case, would I still receive updates to the BT Smart Hub, even though it is not being used on a BT contract? I'm assuming that I won't receive any updates because I'm no longer on BT? Or is this completely wrong, and BT will still send me updates to the firmware?
Thanks a lot,

Unless I am mistaken the Homehub is authenticated on the BT network by your BT telephone number. Obviously if you are not a BT customer you will not have a BT telephone number and as such your Homehub will not be registered on their network, so no updates will be sent to it.
