YouView starts update rollout for Humax boxes, BT and retail first, TalkTalk later
YouView has announced an update for the Humax boxe sold retail and through BT. It will be available on a phased rollout over the next two weeks, with some owners getting it sooner than others. TalkTalk box owners will get it afterwards.
Some new features will be introduced, including an enhancement on searching for programmes on now and next. Search suggestions will match the exact search term used. Plus, channel filters will be added to the EPG, in order to choose "the type of viewing that interests you".
The software also brings with it a swathe of patches and fixes to reported problems, including out of sync subtitles, an issue where the forward/rewind and skip buttons got stuck during live TV and recorded programmes, audio crackling and more.
If you want to check to see if you have the update yet, after it has been installed your system information should display the software version as 12.7.0 (manufacturer software), 1.4.10 (component software).
