  • I haven't checked through the entire thread but if it's one of the just launched 4K Arris Freesat boxes, see this post in this thread. https://www.avforums.com/threads/new-generation-freesat-stb-arris.2256339/page-18#post-27958535 From DigitalSpy: "Freesat have specified/allowed Arris to use the same IR remote code subset…
  • On my 2110 it is saying software version CDS/32.36.0 John
  • I noticed this update had arrived on my retail BT2110 a couple of days ago...
  • Realise it's through a dish and not an aerial but the new Arris Freesat boxes have started being launched and they do have an app, only the standard box is available for now but the 500GB, 1TB and 2TB should be launching soon. With a wideband LNB it can potentially record 3 channels whilst watching a fourth. I'm going to…
  • Hi Sarah, yes you can hide the channels. Once you've got your new remote, go to the guide and press the yellow button, you should go to edit mode where you can hide channels, put a cross in any of the boxes for each channel you want to hide, then click done. You can also use the categories above the guide, I don't know how…
  • When I subscribed to some channels with them (the base pack) I was going to the channel and it was saying something along the lines of "you are not subscribed" etc and there was a "Setup" button, all I did was click the "Ok" button on my remote and a few seconds later I was live and viewing the IP channels, I was even…
  • As this update arrives it's also worth pointing out that this is now OVER 3 MONTHS since the last update, 31.28.0. Wasn't that one also a quick fix update for the botched 31.24.0? It's just painfully slow progress, disappointed...
  • Are you sure about that John29? Do you mean the youview+ box from plusnet as I don't have access to that but my plusnet zapper box definitely does have the amazon prime app. According to this thread https://community.plus.net/t5/TV/Amazon-App/td-p/1548254 a staff member on their community was telling people about 3 weeks…
  • I've just packed my plusnet zapper box up as I don't use it, I've a retail BT 2110. It's running the latest version from plusnet and it has the Amazon Prime player. It doesn't have any kind of skin that I can see, just stock youview. hth
  • I think it is good that there is some more discussion about this. Many thanks to @Keith for his input too. Of course @Visionman is spot on, I'd love to end my rant with a "stuff this, I'm off to Freeview Play or something similar" but I think he's right, there is nowhere else to go sadly. I have to say though, it's not…
  • It's even worse than that, if it was recoded from scratch and things were just not implemented rather than removed, that still wouldn't matter from the tiles vs lists point of view, all the information is still there, the data, folders and the pagination; it just needs new views, you could do it in either 2 or 1 new view.…
  • I'm not visually impaired like yourself but my eyes are worsening now I've hit my 50s. All the information is there as the new tile interface is just a list of tiles, so it would take an alternate view being created and an option adding in the settings to set to either tile or list view, simple. If it were a website and…
  • I'd have to agree with John above, if I've received it on my retail 2110 you surely should have received it on your 4000...
  • After a manual check my retail BT 2110 has this update now, bug fixed with Amazon Prime player in place...
  • It could have been a typo but isn't the DTR-2100 the BT subscriber box? Mine the 2110 is the retail box; or if you are a BT customer who leaves does your 2100 get treated like a retail box? I might be completely confused or wrong about this :-)
  • 
I'll check this with our team as I was informed earlier that a large majority of boxes had indeed taken this update and there was only a small number of BT Retail devices on older updates and most seemed to be ones which chose not to update (not plugged into the internet). Any news from your team Sarah? Like I've said…
  • I'm a little confused here Sarah, that page is saying that the 31.24.0 update has been fully rolled out to all DTR-2110 retail boxes then, with the new Amazon Video app and mine certainly hasn't as I've been looking for it daily to see if it was coming to retail. Just checked again with a manual update and it is saying it…
  • Yeah it is odd, all their literature and even replies from mods in the community point out that their TV service will only work with a PlusNet supplied device. I'd imagine they justify it for support reasons...
  • Just reporting back what I have found in switching to PlusNet and using my retail BT DTR-2110; it is as everyone has outlined in this thread working fine with the PlusNet IP channels, I even had it up and running before the zapper box I had ordered had arrived. One oddity was that my old ISP (Sky), was staying in the…
  • If you don't have internet, can't you set a youview box up using the internet at a friend's house and then bring it home to continue to use with full forward in time freeview EPG? I tested my box early doors (prior to the NextGen downgrade) as a friend was interested in it as I was telling him how good youview used to be…
  • DTR-2110 and Sky, ISP configuration 9.
  • This update has started going out to the retail boxes now, just received last night on my BT DTR-2110. Like Darren above as well the Watch in HD seems only to be available on the BBC channels, same for me on ITV and channel 4. John.
  • That is good to hear and how I expect it will go for me re' youview and the TV side, however; 
That is a concern and something that I've read about, although there are conflicting views on it, some say by turning off the smart connect or whatever it is and splitting the 2.4 and 5Ghz bands have given a better wifi…
  • Hi MATTHEW I've just made a similar switch from Sky to Plusnet, it'll take 10 working days to get the fibre broadband setup then I'll be ordering the zapper box and trying my retail 2110 on the plusnet service. From what Keith, Roy and everything else I've read I should be fine watching the entertainment package channels…
  • Thanks jonesh, even better than I expected. I will probably do this over the weekend as the offer ends on the 19th, although there are always offers available. I'm still within my minimum contract period with Sky but they've just put the prices up and from what I read in the email I have 30 days to get in touch and I can…
  • Not Manchester, I'm in Stoke on Trent and pointing at Fenton. Couldn't get them myself along with a bunch of other channels about a week ago, did a retune and they have returned. I have noticed a lot of weak signal messages lately...
  • 
I don't know what the update speed was like back in old gen but it seems so slow/glacial to me on new gen. My retail DTR-T2110 got the 28.26.0 update on the 10th of August, over three months later and I'm waiting for the hide channels update of 29.27.0 to start rolling out. I'm sure some of that is BT but one would…
  • My retail DTR-T2110 has received this update over the last couple of days despite this page https://support.youview.com/youview-box/software-updates/latest-software-versions not saying it is in progress. Just a heads up if anyone is interested.
  • Thanks for that jonesh, will give that a go the next time it happens...
  • I'm currently waiting on the latest release but have had an issue with 27.50.0 that is perhaps worthwhile reporting. It happened again last night and this is my second time now over the last couple of months. The remote control stops accepting certain inputs, I could not bring up the guide, change channel or hit the…
