New software release

Has anyone received the accessibility update yet and if so what software number are we now at (is it actually rolling out yet or was that a pre-emptive strike).

 

Does it include the Scart output fix rolled out in the latest retail software (guessing there is nothing new above what is in the retail release by the low key announcement - I was kind of hoping due to the length of time between the retail release and BT's we might get a couple of extra fixes - IP surround sound, REC light).

 

Any mods care to give us a few more details...

Re: New software release

My box reported a software update but it turned out that it was just a change to the ISP profile .... it changed from 90 to 95 and now has changed back from 95 to 90 again.

Re: New software release

My Box updated overnight to FR9 which shows as 17.3.0

 

I believe they role it out to a set limit each day based on a first come-first served basis. You could be sneaky and try a manual software update check every so often 😉

Re: New software release

Steve -- that is good news as it means that the BT & retail boxes are back on the same software build.

Indeed, nobody enjoys code branching!

 

PS, your ISP update was casued by an incident but the contents of the files should be the same.

Re: New software release

In the youview community discussion on this build (17.3.0) one of their official reps did add that in addition to the accessibility changes

 

 

In this release the viewer can now see the YouView menu and the guide through SCART and composite outputs when a HDMI cable is also connected and the remaining fixes focus on improving the general running of the box.

Re: New software release

Cheers Steve way to tease us all Smiley Sad but if you can't tell the new features without having to read about them it doesn't sound too exciting

 

Lol will have to try my other sources on Monday Smiley Frustrated...looking forward to march Smiley Wink
