YouView issues yet another Software Update


Distinguished Member
Bugs fixed, features added

They may not have got it right first time but you could never accuse YouView of being reticent over issuing software updates to its set-top-boxes and here is the announcement of another.

The latest update is being rolled out for retail and BT customers with Talk Talk YouView owners soon to follow. It will be a phased roll so some boxes will receive this software sooner than others but you could always try and force an update from the Settings menu.

Improvements include an enhancement to searching for programmes that are on now and next; Search Suggestions will return results matching the exact search term used. They've also added channel Filters in the Guide meaning you can choose from a range of genres.


The update also addresses a number of bugs including subtitles appearing ahead of time during playback of recorded programmes and the Fast-forward/Rewind/Skip buttons getting stuck during Live TV and recorded programmes.

You can check if you have the latest version by pressing the YouView button on your remote control, navigate to Settings > System Information > Software Versions.

For those boxes that have already received the update you will see the following:

Manufacturer Software: 12.7.0
Component Software: 1.4.10
Platform configuration: 450
ISP Configuration: (varies by ISP)
