    It has been pointed out over on DigitalSpy that a new software version 1.01.18 will be broadcast OTA from Wednesday next week http://dtg.org.uk/dtg/download_schedule.html Barry any idea if there is anything interesting in it? I must confess that I thought OTA broadcasts had been consigned to history.

    No idea Martin...I suspect nothing of any significance as we have not been asked to test it.

    Will try and find out tomorrow.

    Release Notes:
    -. TLS 1.2 is applied
    -. Added Freeview new logo on EPG
    -. Improved IP OTA Scenario
    -. Added New Domain for BBC iPlayer

    Nothing that would seem to fix the major problems with the boxes.

    Well my doubts were proved right as this update doesn't cure any of the major issues that really needed sorting.

    iPlayer still crashed and rebooted the machine as well after the update, so no change there!

    But hey, we got a nice new 'Freeview' logo in the TV guide!

    Any particular programme...reason I ask is I have just streamed first 10 minutes of 5 different programmes listed in most popular without issue.

    Yes a very helpful thread as I was wondering what the update was all about.

    I was surprised to see an update for the 2000T but clicked to download it with fingers crossed.

    Apart from noticing a Freeview logo on the TV guide I didnt expect much and indeed we didnt get much. I was actually more surprised that there was an "update" after all this time

    Its understandable because its clearly going to take more than a basic software update to resolve any known issues with the box. I consider the 2000T to be yesterdays news and Im just trying to eek out my moneys worth over a longer time period.

    To be fair when its running a recorded BBC nature programme in HD I do like the little box.

    My view is that is just a shame that it wasnt a product capable of giving a full satisfaction of ownership.

    Best wishes to everyone on the forum

    I have retired my 2000T to the loft since having BT Youview. TBH I've been thinking of taking it to a charity shop (probably British Heart Foundation) as I doubt I will use it again even if I ditch BT TV.

    It works flawlessly but it really was a box built to a price point and things move on.

    I sorted the noise issue by damping the hard drive and the casing....reducing the noise by well over a half to very acceptable unobtrusive levels

    It's now coming on with the sound and hard drive functions more often than not. Well maybe 50/50 but its come on the last few times without having to reboot it.

    It records very well, the guide is fast and the UI is generally very good but sometimes freezes when coming back out of signal detection or other menu functions.

    It's never missed a beat on BBC 4 HD and Ive never seen one glitch in a recording or transmission. The picture quality is very good indeed

    Any other reception problems Ive had are probably due to the aerial and other factors out of my control at the moment.

    It plays You Tube videos and BBC i player superbly.

    So Ive eased off on it but am still prone to grumble because of the horrendous noise initially and the need to reboot it sometimes on switch on.

    Best wishes to everyone on the forum
