    Apparently an Android app is also in being worked on.

    Freesat would appear to have missed some interesting points off the change list:

    1. Recordings now have Today, Yesterday or date annotated to them, similar in timers list but no date.

    and

    2. You can have some fun now with youtube and a tablet, look carefully at the tablet youtube screen, in top right hand corner, for tv icon you can opt to play on your freetime box without pairing now, just select the appropriate device id (if you are lucky enough to have more then one freetime unit) Device id as appears in system info.

    Freetime boxes will update automatically. But if you can’t wait, you can do this manually, simply search for new software by pressing Home, Settings, System settings, Software update and Search new software.

    My HB-1000S doesn't find this update.

    "EPG Improvements" ???
    If there then hard to spot. Major disappointment is the LIST feature shows no improvement and so it still takes 4 key presses to get to Favourites.

    No Android app, another disappointment.

    The main change is the background green is gone, also the category box has changed.
    Not noticed anything else.

    Massive improvement for me with the fixed Lip-Sync function bug which means I can now use my surround sound amp without the box behaving oddly.
    Also it seems that if the box is recording in standby it doesn't end up with a blank screen anymore when you turn on both the box and the tv at the same time.

    One disappointment for me is in the recordings list, ie: double Corrie last night, but still nothing to distinguish which episode is which without pressing play.

    One improvement noted is the EPG is lots faster populating. Well done on that one.

    Just set an instant record which what seems to be a bigger grey banner top center appears, well the R icon is certainly bigger.
    One issue though is that I cannot seem to cancel the recording, I'm selecting cancel record but nothing happens.

    And it seems the green EPG background has come back now.
    Thinks I best factory default.

    Just started instant recording for BBC2-HD Eggheads. Was able to cancel from the most recent recordings list.
