Just arrived! First impressions.

Hey,
So I ordered the Youview + box on Tuesday with the HD channels as extra and it just arrived.  I am not using the pn router, but configured my Billion 8800AXL router to use it - and it is working fine.
I can confirm that although I could see the guide for the internet channels on my old BT YouView box I was unable to set them up.
All is working ok - the box is about a 1/4 of the size of the BT Humax one.  The bundled remote is hideous so am using my original remote, which is fine.
Internet channels were a breeze to set up but do take about 5-10 seconds to kick in when you tune to the channel.
The box definitely seems quicker to access the menus compared to the old BT version.  There is no plusnet app.
Essentially, everything is the same as the BT YouView box - it is quicker and smaller.
Rick.

Thanks for the insight. I am hoping for a few more of these posts as more boxes arrive.  Smiley

Thanks,
I am really impressed with the speed of the menu's compared to the old YouView box, and the smaller footprint means I can rejig things too.
I am also looking forward to any additional channels being added in the future too.

I'm now really intrigued about what MattyC typed instead of (presumably) service or product that fell foul of the swearing filter Smiley

Premiership football team.
EDIT: Either that, or I'm just aggressively passionate about adding lists of TV channels to threads.  Grin

Re: Just arrived! First impressions.

From memory the usual reason is the use of a wild card in the swear filter to pick up variants where the addition of extra letters would otherwise get it passed

Thanks for the explanation, Jim.
I assume, then, there is no white list for the swear filter.

I don't remember ever seeing one - I don't think it is an option in the forum software

Well I hope a mod will pop along shortly and get to the bottom of this. Tongue
