A warning to anyone using a retail Humax box

I had a look at the new retail Humax s/w 18.3.0 this morning.

 

https://community.youview.com/youview/topics/automatic_software_update_march_2014

 

It appears that if you install this software it defaults you to sharing your personal data with Youview's content providers.

 

There is the ability to Not Share - this is found under  Settings > Your Info & Legal > Personal Data.

 

Its a bit naughty to default it to Share.

I'll feed that back.

 

For info, newly installed boxes will get a screen asking to opt-in or opt-out.
