Re: Firmware Update Today

May be some one from BT could explain what this bug  cause to happen. From evidence so far there is little problem with people that have the new software.

As a major partner of youview I find it Very strange that BT was not able to test this software at the same time it was being Trialed and tested by youview, bearing in mind the fact  that the retail box has the same capability to use the BT vision app and unlike the talktalk ( which has extra service ) the BT box is a bog standard Humax youview box.

I know for fact that Youview  went to great Lengths that all types of users trialed the new software before roll out therefore it hard to believe that a major partner would be left out.

To me and probably many other on this forum, this just seems like a excuse, to save face because the roll out is taking longer than expected

Re: Firmware Update Today

Firmware is the same across all providers, yes? The only BT part of the box is the Vision player.

 

Why bugs in BT Vision player SOFTware should prevent a FIRMware rollout is beyond me. Bugs in Vision player do (should) not affect the overall operation of the box.

 

BT should allow the update and then concentrate on fixing their own buggy software.

Don't worry, you won't have a problem if it is a retail box, even if you are connected to BT Broadband/Infinity.

 

As far as we can tell it is purely the serial number of the Humax boxes which BT deliver are blocked.

Re: Firmware Update Today

I suspect all updates have now been stopped. Have you tried a manual update?

Re: Firmware Update Today

not tested yet, but now tv and iPlayer both fine. Just concerned if I run the bt app if they then try charging for it or billing me £200 for powering off my bt vision box and probably not switching it back on. Nothing in contract to say you can't keep powered off, only it must stay connected to network. Which it is.

Re: Firmware Update Today

This confirms nicely that retail boxes are still being updated. Out of interest do you have a BT icon appearing on the initial menu at the bottom?
