    Why don’t you tell your customers if development on the T1000 and T1010 has been abandoned?  Because it’s sure starting to look that way.

    Hmmmmmm. Sure looks that way. Or are they leaving the older boxes till last.

    We were told by Youview some while ago that these latest updates would support all old Youview boxes and that no-one would be left out.

    Could be as it's 'a rolling update'.

    So how do I find out if the ‘older’ Humax boxes are scheduled for update. It would be very easy for Freeview to tag the older devices as ‘Update coming soon’.

    ITYM YouView. But that would be a pre-announcement, and they don’t do those.

    Promises yes, but even those they get hung out to dry over if they don’t happen toot sweet.

    Do you have a link to that statement?  I want to read it to see if YouView are likely to use any wriggle room dependant on it’s wording.

    The original statement about Next-Gen was:

    "...a new simpler, more streamlined and image-led interface, rendered in HTML 5, will rollout across the UK. Every set top box provided by YouView’s shareholder partners TalkTalk and BT – as well as all original devices bought by retail customers since its launch in 2012 – will be upgraded..."

    but this did not commit to continue to support every box.

    Well said, jimb. But just one slight correction (sorry), YouView have committed to continue to support all devices for the span of their life. No other platform or device does that and so thats a stance to be applauded.

    Those with T1000 boxes may also be interested to see YouView are explicitly looking for new trialists with T1000 boxes. One would assume that means there must be further software updates planned for T1000 boxes such that it is worth having trialists for them :)

    Come now Keith, this is an internet forum and no know gives praise on such. Just moans and groans. But yes, good to know.  :)

    There's been plenty of 'grumbling' (to put it mildly) by T1000 owners so now they have the opportunity to get testing and help themselves get the improvements they desire. Only problem I see is that some posters haven't seemed to be able to grasp what testing actually entails and the limitations this can bring at times. To all those aforementioned disappointed people, happy testing, the day you have been waiting for has arrived.
