  • I don't mind the BT branding and the functions that require BT login I.D. For me, it was just the app based record scheduling and viewing MyTV that I used and we now still have that (good news). I never used the app based playback (or even know it was possible) but I can see it's uses for some. (@Jimb: yep. Rare as hens…
  • Well, it's a cynical world. Who would have thought this would happen. In a world where businesses care about themselves, people dont care about the harm or distress they cause to others by ignoring rules, administration often suffocates the voice of a simple process and money bangs the drum to dictate the pace of all of…
  • I retried. It was a long tentative response but it did eventually display after 30+ seconds on the retry. (Subsequent tries just 15 seconds to start).
  • 
Me too. When trying to launch the app, the screen goes blank then after about 15 seconds it bombs out back to TV channel. Definitely broken.
  • 
Dont get excited. Its still about 6 seconds - a good 4 seconds too long. And still a full half screen of blue/black dog collectively covering your screen from the top and the bottom when its on. What is actually shortened is the banner when you change channel - that now disappears after 3 seconds (better, but still at…
  • Come on guys, this isnt hard to understand. 4 updates of software of my box in the last year. Knowing there are updates due, after leaving many days for the system to sort itself via the automatic updates (and not succeeding) a periodic manual check was performed leaving a gap of quite a few days between each attempt. Each…
  • 
....or it suggests they are still relying on the AUTOMATIC software update to work. It has never worked on my box (3 or 4 software updates since I've owned it). It always says that it has checked 'today' and every day no update is performed. Yet, when you do the manual check, lo and behold there's the new software…
  • FYI (for those still waiting): 2 days ago (16th Nov) my box finally found and updated to 29.27.0. Previous manual software checks done every 2 or 3 days prior were not detecting new updates (and the 'automatic update' feature has never worked anyway) so I can only assume it has then hit my region (1 month after initial…
  • Hello I was invited to contribute to this specific thread in a 'discussion' about this particular failure (yes, I use the word "failure" as I think it is in respect to handling the live buffer correctly). To be honest, I will reiterate the point (as per my findings) but dont really want to *discuss* things as I dont have…
  • @Roy: Hint: When you post something, remember that your first initial post gets sent out by email (to those that have subscribed) and there to be read even after you have then changed your mind and edited your post on the forum. It's interesting to see how people self moderate themselves after the event. :-) Im off for "a…
  • Quelle surprise is that you never noticed it before, possibly Not really - I am a rare user of the iPlayer (I watch live or record most things and play from disk). This is why I couldnt be sure it was specific to the Newgen debarcle. On the rare occasions I have used it I had it on SD playback for a long time (before I…
  • +1 https://community.youview.com/youview/topics/-discussion-bt-software-update-28-26-0?topic-reply-list... (I get exactly the same issue along with the 'buffering spinner - T2100, v28.26).
  • has its own and is nothing to do with BT. Neither do 'tiles', '2 hour buffer playback buffer' issues, missing time-select entry playback, software upgrade issues, or anything else anyone reports. Your implication is that unless someone specifically talks about the BLUE fog (which is only apparent when with BT) or a the BT…
  • New observation/annoyance - feedback for youview. (Observers: feel free to keep your objections and snide remarks to yourselves): Environment: Youview box connected directly in to back of router. Smart HD TV connected directly in to back of router. Router with 21mb download connected to ADSL. Both the Youview BBC iPlayer…
  • But AAMOI, what's your 'biggest mole'? For me: 1 Time select playback 1 Sort order of displayed recordings (now showing and defaulting to oldest first) 1 TILES!! (yes, they are all labelled '1' for good reason).
  • I for one will be glad when 28.26.0 is irrelevant history and we are discussing 28.35.0 or later, and I am hoping there will be a lot less to complain about. There wont be. 28.35.0 is exactly the same as 28.26 with the single change (they have brought back a form of hide/unhide channels). That's it.…
  • William, dont forget that getting your upgrade to a T2100 doesnt give you v28.35 - as it is yet to be included in the planned roll outs. So exercising the suggestion against a 10 week impatience doesnt achieve anything (other than a new box with the same functionality). Here comes the nay-sayers.....
  • BT have to go through its admin duties before it can release, until the testing is completed to its satisfaction it will not commence rollout An implication that BT do testing. Interesting; because if they do testing they wouldnt have given the go ahead for the release of this infested NewGen in the first place. Maybe they…
  • I'll be back if I find any more 'bugs' and observations about this software version.
  • There is a known issue with incorrect behaviour when the 'pause/rewind' buffer - the one for the channel you are watching - hits its two hour limit, and has to start throwing away the earliest minutes as the new minutes come in. Seemingly "throwing away the earliest minutes" involves completely forgetting the full 120+…
  • Update: the recording (in part 1) is irrelevant. The program I was watching (the F1 race) has long finished and am now half way through the live broadcast of the successive program and the problem still exists. (When pressing the button the time bar seems to jump back to some time during the last program before then…
  • Time to write another observation of a fault that I have witnessed in this infested NewGen software a few times bit not yet reported. Scenario: 1, Choose a program that is one for many hours (eg, a Formula 1 GP race) and schedule it to record. Note: I dont know if this step (to record it) is important - its just that I…
  • Nope. Up to yesterday this all looked fine (all recordings had all the correct tiles). So this crazy display has happened today. However, I think I remember seeing a similar report of such crazy disaplys iun the previous 27.x.x. versions too so it is definitely a bug that happens radoimly...but happens all the same. Here…
  • Feedback for YouView: I hate the tiles anyway. But then this is my RECORDINGS screen right now: I should complain that they are not all BLACK (which would be preferable if we really must have them). Want a laugh? Take another look: "Tonight At The Palladium" - given the BBC iPlayer APP logo for its tile. And the irony is…
  • and necessitates many more button presses than with old gen. Quite why they thought it would be a 'good idea' is beyond me. Just like them putting the MyTV menu option 2 clicks away after pressing the blue YouView button - even further away than on the OldGen system (which was only 1/adjacent) when in 90% of the time it…
  • However, Users posting "I don't like this", "I don't like that", "I don't like the other" without posting the reason why just ..... won't get fed back. Wow. Now he is advising/telling Youview what to read and what to ignore on THEIR 'We want feedback' thread. Its a good job this man is around - I cant possibly understand…
  • Nah. That would mean an acknowledgment and admittance of error. That's never going to happen. Businesses and stock markets don't like admittance of - the consequences can be costly.
  • But given the other things we have seen sadly it is no longer a surprise. Hope was lost months ago.
  • Andy, they have only 'fixed' ONE noticeable thing ......and that may or may not be of interest to you. When pressing STOP (from a playback of recording) it goes back to the series group of individual recordings rather than level 0 and highlighting the whole group (thus avoiding accidental deletion of the group instead of…
  • Well done Roy, you have qualified for the next round. :-) It's true that I am not with BT (or PlusNet) as an ISP. Scott, regarding the Info bar: take a look at the overall depth of the bar (49%) and then take a look at exactly how much of that bar has information on it. If you add the graduate-to-nothing shading above the…
