Re: Youview - Retail Boxes Get January software update

Forcing manual update does not work for me.
It reports that my software is up-to-date even though it's dated 4th December

Re: Youview - Retail Boxes Get January software update

Thanks duncansby

 

As I said earlier tried that but it didn't work. However, have checked again and just managed to spot the message that the download is 33% complete.

 

I assume that as I am in a rural area and my broadband is somewhat slow (just done a test on broadband  speed checker.co.uk that shows my download speed as 4.75 mb/s) the download is taking it's time but will get there in due course.

Re: Youview - Retail Boxes Get January software update

Further to yesterday have just checked again at 08:45 and it still shows 33% completed so no further download overnight.

 

Bit strange as yesterday when I checked I could have sworn that it briefly jumped from 33% to 60% i.e it started at the lower figure but briefly jumped to the higher figure. This happended each time I checked so wasn't sure which figure was right.

 

Getting a litttle concerned as to why the update is taking so long to install as it is now 2 weeks since it was first made available according to Sean's post. Hope delay isn't due to my box being replaced in November so hence different serial number.

Re: Youview - Retail Boxes Get January software update

Thought I would check again and lo and behold the update started to download, so was obviously scheduled for tonight. 

Completed successfully and software details are: 

Manufacturer Software: 9.5.0 
Component Software: 1.2.6 
Platform Configuration: 312 
ISP Configuration 27 

Have found the new the HDMI audio and display options so that's fine. 

Managed to find the new Search Live TV option after fiddling about and think I know how it works. Would appreciate more informative instructions for future updates. 

 

Not looked as to where to find the new Software Update notification should I need it.

Are there any other new options I should be aware of and if so how do I find them. 

Thanks

Ah the update seems to offer dolby surround over HDMI not dolby digital
I was hoping to reduce number of cables by one.

Just forced an update check on my Youview STB and I'm downloading as we speak. 

 

Looking forward to the new features 🙂
