    Thanks for letting us know Barry - FYI, I've juust checked / rebooted and I'm yet to see the update on my Aura.

    Is there a way to force the update to download?

    Updated. The Horror Channel is working. A long press on Apps brings up recent apps. When I switched on the Aura (after the update), I got a blank screen when trying to access Android Home (Freeview Play Home was fine), but after a few attempts it worked.

    I’ve not received a notification but checking the box the latest update has been applied. Maybe you are the same?

    Thanks boogersa - I checked the System Info page but it says the last update was the 12th April.

    any ideas how to get rid of this new (awful) home screen? The old one was nice and clean, I really liked it. Hate the new one though. They are really pushing these adverts aren't they, I have them on the top (which I cant hide), and at the bottom, which despite me removing them in the 'customise home screen' settings, they won't go.

    assume it's an update to one of the stock system apps? Perhaps we can get the old one, modify the appmanifest to a higher version number and re-install it?

    I perfer the white & red Freeview button menu Like you say, too many ads on the Home menu from Google, even if you cusomise the channel and disable Disney+ etc.

    Settings -> apps -> all apps -> show system apps -> Android TV Home -> uninstall updates.

    This will get you back to the old Android home screen view.

    You'll want to make sure that automatic updates are off in the Google Play Store settings to prevent it reinstalling the updates.
