Foxtel iQ3 Software update Number2
Coming July 29.
This is from Foxtel community. 🙂
Will be rolling out soon here all the info.
A new iQ3 software update (version 126.96.36.199) will be pushed to your iQ3 over the next couple of weeks. This is the second major iQ3 software update, following our first update in May. Based on your feedback from the first two weeks after we launched the iQ3, this new update includes:
Improvements to recordings – fewer (or no) instances where:
o Recordings fail due to ‘No Signal’ errors
o Clashes occur when recording shows, especially when using Series Link
o Issues occur when deleting recordings
Accurate results when running the WiFi speed test
o Check out thread about How to run a speed test for more info.
Simpler way to connect to your WiFi
o There’s now a one-push option called WPS to connect to your WiFi
o Available for WPS enabled routers
iQ3 will manage disk space better
o When your iQ3 hard drive fills up, it will automatically delete recordings
o Like the iQ2, make sure you ‘Keep’ recordings you don’t want deleted
Easier way to see what you already watched
o The iQ3 will now indicate previously watched records in a darker font and background
o This will occur when you’ve watch the recording in full (as in right to the very end)
o Available in Library and Episodic view
We’ve eliminated the need for an adapter for HDMI ARC and CEC devices
Your iQ3 is less likely to get stuck in standby.
Overall, you’ll notice improved stability when using your iQ3. We understand this update hasn’t addressed everything you’ve been waiting on and we’re already working on the next iQ3 software update. We’ll further improve the iQ3’s performance, speed and stability, in particular its recording reliability and Bluetooth functionality.
Once more, thank you for your continued feedback in the Community – it helps us continue to deliver you a better experience.
