    I prefer the old List view to the new Tile view on my Youview box but it is fair way down my list of things I don't like about the new UI.

    Top of my list is the loss of the direct Play Point positioning.

    I kneel at the side of my bed each night and pray for its early reinstatement.

    One thing I can't understand and one which irks me is why different manufacturers seem keen to include a dedicated 'Netflix' button on the remote?

    I noticed this on the screen grabs for the FVP5000T remote and our Panasonic HWT120 has one too. Given the app is there along with all the others I see little point in having the dedicated button.

    Thank you Barry. Blimey it's looking good to go straight for the 2 TB model. with a bit of luck the first remarks on the newer software will be in, or I may even be the first.
    I really appreciate your time and trouble to get some more info.

    Now in stock at Humax Direct see my post #33

    That's good I'll give it a few days to see what the first reviews are,
    then I'll go for one of the 2tb models. once again many thanks for your time and trouble Barry. Once I've got one installed and working I'll let you know just what the improvements are from the 4000t.

    Oh, I do like the bravery of an early adopter. Sainthood is on the cards in the afterlife.

    Whilst I already know what changes/improvements have been made

    Please do let us know your view, it will be of interest to many I'm sure.

    I'm confused, if the internal hardware on the FVP5000t and FVP4000t is the same then isn't the former just a software update for the latter ? Or are there internal hardware changes ?

    I was thinking that. This surely is a 4000T in new Sunday clothes. Why couldn't the 4000T receive the same software update. Call my cynical but this sounds like another way to generate 'new sales'.
