I have one word for it at moment. (terrible).
It was fitted on Friday. Spent more time not working. It forced a reset of my router 5 times. Will not work on hg533 with firmware 1.22.1.t.
Keeps dropping off the network and picture breaks up.
Another 2 days of this and i will disconnect it and send it back before it sends me insane.
I had a troup of folk round on Friday and Saturday who were interested in it. They have now walked away. Multi room you can stuff it.
A few steps. Connect 2 x supplied network plugs to mains. One connected to router other to multi room box. (To supply the broadband network)
Connect multi room box to tv via hdmi cable and to outside antenna.
Power up tv box and follow install instructions and search for channels / programs
Thats about it.
So it's just a couple of PLA's then no magic at all apart presumably from authorising 2 boxes. What second box did they send you?
Why the mystique of an engineer install I wonder? What line speeds are you getting now and before ?
So a non recordable box !!!
Probably worth running a speedtest from your computer though !!
Sounds like NOW TV will get a number of new customers then, as their live entertainment offerings are limited but, the catch up and box sets are loads better than TT and you can use up to 4 devices including mobiles and tablets 2 at once. The last deal that I saw was 12months of entertainment AND cinema for about £100.
Now boxes usually come with 2-4 month passes and cost about £20.
The only problem is that I now have about 6-7 unused NOW boxes !! LOL
One thing Paul if you cancel the NOW subscriptions so that they don't auto renew I've found that if you say can't afford it in their reasons for cancellation and continue the cancel anyway wish they offer stunning deals.
Just cancelled the Cinema one and now got 4 months at £3.30 a month !! I've still got 3 vouchers for between 4 and 3 months to use. Plus some entertainment ones too !!
Their new APP works really well too !!
I'm assuming that you have fibre. If so it may be worth asking for a new router. The 633 with the new software is pretty reliable now.
Working on an HG635 at moment.
I do have an HG633 with firmware 1.22.1.t. But when i use it i get bad program breakup/pixilation on my direct ethernet connected recordable TT TV box. Same for Multi room box.
So swapped back to HG635 and program breakup stopped. So issue is with firmware on HG533
Just hope the firmware they tested on the trial was to cure this issue. Far as i know that has not been released yet.
My cinema pass didn't end until 20 March, if you cancel you still get the remaining period.
My new deal starts on 20 March.
I do have to say that it is a trial and these issues are exactly what you hope to find out in a trial rather than after it has been made generally avaailable. Although no one has specifically mentioned it, I would hope that as trialists you have a formal feedback mechanism to feed these issues back to TT?
Otherwise, if you were just left on your own the trial would be a bit pointless!!
Yes i do communicated with trial team. Assuming my dscout comms have worked. Also e-mailed the team. (loosing my android dscout phone dont help either)
Anyways. Have now sorted issues out. It's a darn resource issue.
On the multi room box menu, i set the tv to run at 720p instead of 1080p. That appears to have cured the ipc errors and dropouts, Now been online for 18 hours without any issues. Darn stupid the things you find, but all the part of trialing hardware. .
Still working without issue at 18:05 hours. Looks like it is now stable. Jut got to try it later this week on the HG633 router running V2.0.
Forget V1.22.1.t it caused breakups on ip channels, but runs ok on v1.21t
More updates later in week on progress. At last i am getting more impressed with Multi-Room TV
Hi All. A quick update on Multi room TV
Setting screen select from 1080p tyo 720p resolved my issues. Now been a week without any glitch what so ever. Runs perfect on an HG635 running firmware v1.06 or v1.10t
Runs perfect on the HG633 router using the V2.0t latest firmware.
Everyone will soon get V2.0 for HG633 routers. It cures many many issues. Wifi is quicker, No more iptv glitches or breakups. No more millions of wifi errors recorded.
So at this moment in time is say. Well done on the router firmware, and super work on Multi Room iptv. So guys / gals i would queue up for the multi-room tv.
