Re: blue screen intermittently during a program

@Izzie-T  Sorry but what you seem to be missing is;

 

This is not a device issue.

 

This is a software issue

 

This needs to be passed to the software team that prepared the update to look at how the master time and background interact to cause this issue in one of your supported devices.

Same issue. 

Again, it is since the update. 

Several people are asking how to contact customer services yet still no information.

Hi @Henchf 

 

Please use the Help Centre page and you will find a Pink colour tab " Get Help Quicker ".

 

That would help you to get on a live chat with the team.

 

Thank you.

 

Hi @Otters33 

 

The team is still working on this, even though I recommend for contact customer service for a proper device help.

Re: blue screen intermittently during a program

@Izzie-T 

 

You said:-

 

I would strongly suggest to contact customer service for the device issue, as all the NOW TV is end of life product. 

 

Would somebody from the product side please like to clarify this?

 

Even the Sticks are EOL?

 

NOWTV itself is EOL?

 

Or is this just the Black box, and you know something we don’t?

 

But why update it, if it’s going?

Re: blue screen intermittently during a program

It seems we have exactly the same intermittent blue screen. We use the NowTV black box. 

so is the resolution we give up our subscription and go to a different service provider. The nominated NowTV ‘expert’ seems to have no answers or proper recommendations.

Re: blue screen intermittently during a program

We've been watching Chicago PD on catch-up nightly Mon - Fri between 9pm to 10pm and the blue screen has flashed up every 5 mins or so for a second.

 

Then on Saturday I was trying to watch the Italian F1 Grand Prix qualifying live on Sky One and the screen went blue permanently. I switched channels and the screen came back, but went blue pemanently again after a couple of seconds.

Sorry, missed off that our problem is when using a black box (sn: 325581103481).

Re: blue screen intermittently during a program

Daft question but has anyone recorded the problem on a mobile device and emailed it to customer services?

 

I only ask because I have 6 devices that don't have the problem and if NowTV developers are in the same boat as me (or can't replicate the problem) they won't know what they're looking for.
