    It looks faintly absurd to me.

    The YouView Latest Versions page shows two rollouts going on at once, from a single earlier version, for each included Huawei box.

    It’s always been implied, and quite possibly stated, that a new rollout could not start until an existing one had finished, a useful device for explaining why NextGen development is so extended, and updates so widely separated.

    But now, apparently, we learn this is not so.

    But quite apart from that, how does this all work? Do Huawei users who haven’t yet got the first update still get it, and then later get the second, apparently feature-free, one?

    Or is it that all future updates will be to the latest release? And so that latest versions page should actually have dual entries on the left, and the single new update on the right?

    Enquiring minds want to know....

    Hi Roy,

    Thanks for your feedback, I've changed the Latest Versions page to more accurately reflect the release cycle here, you are quite right. For TalkTalk there are two previous versions of software 124/125 and 147/148 both of which have halted rollout. They both contain the same feature set and the later one is an incremental update.

    This latest software 211/212 will be available to all TalkTalk boxes in due course (superseding both) and contains a back-end maintenance fix. I hope this makes it a bit clearer to understand!

    Enquiring minds have been satisfied - thank you, Phil.

    My 372t box froze and would not wake up following this update. A soft reboot and check for latest software worked.

    I don't know whether it had just updated itself, but my DN370T completely failed yesterday. A soft reboot worked. The same thing happened today and nothing will make it start. After saying waking up for about 10 minutes, the screen just goes black. Any ideas?

    Apple007 said:
    When will the discover mode  be back?  please do not say soon, we had the word soon ever since the next Gen went live,  with no new features or apps and next gen software came with statement, the next gen will make it easier and quicker for updates and new services to come live,  but nothing has, just the recording menu looks visually better with Pic Icons, but many other companies and smart tv providers have had this way before Youview Next Gen.  Are Youview now slowing down and putting all hope in the development of features and apps to the providers it partner with such as TalkTalk, BT, PLUSNET? why has there been no development of features, apps or the return of discover since the launch of next gen software update, you had big song and dace about this but failed to keep it updated with features and apps or the return of Discover mode, we ask WHY and WHAT IS GOING ON?   
    I think Apple007 is the same as SW007.
    Remember who SW is folks?
