Re: Software version 8.0.3 build 4230

An urgent software update is needed for a bug fix as I've noticed at least 2 bugs in version 8.0.3 build 4230. First all when turning on my now TVs smart box it didn't load properly you have to go down my apps section click on now Tv app and wait it loaded then hit the home for the home section to be loaded and the freeview channels to start. Also I have noticed when watching a movies or a tv show on now TV catch up service and you have to stop it for a cup of tea it does not pick up where you have left off when you start the program again.

I don't have either of the two issues you appear to be having. Have you rebooted the box since the update?

You never did respond to my previous question to you.

 

I'm sure there'll be an update if and when there is something new to add. Until then why not just sit back and enjoy all that NowTV has to offer.

I sincerely hope you haven't broken your NDA with Sky/NowTV, although I doubt you'd be testing if you can't tell the difference between hardware and software.

A Homepage redesign would still be a 'software' update, and not a 'hardware' update as you have mistakenly stated. 'Hardware' is the device (physical medium) we use to view our tv (eg. NowTV Stick etc).

Re: Software version 8.0.3 build 4230

It's still a terrible device..I will not pay for any pass as the stick will not work for more then a hour....then it will freeze or disconnect. .most of the time it will not connect first time the software is so dumb it will not try to connect again till you reboot it ....if the stick is not connected the remote is useless so you are forced to reboot ....who come up with that idea it's 2018 guys get ya act together
