A YouView Box Update

November 12th, 2018

BT Software Update 31.69.0 / 3.5.132

This update includes a number of new features, including a new Synopsis in Guide feature and a number of bug fixes to improve performance.

What's new?

Launch Action Panel from Scheduled Recording

Four in a Bed scheduled recording, launched action panel

Pressing OK on a Scheduled Recording will launch the action panel so you can find out more about the programme.

Launch Action Panel from Failed Recording

A1: Britain's Longest Road failed recording, launched action panel

If you experience a failed recording, pressing OK on the programme tile will launch the action panel so you can find out more about the programme that failed.

Save time with Recent Searches

Search can be a quick way to find what you want to watch. We’ve now made it even quicker to find these programmes by introducing your Recent Searches underneath the search bar.

The next time you play a programme from search, we'll add it to your recent searches, ready for you to click and play next time.

Quicker playback bar timeout for recordings

The next time you play a recording you'll notice we've made the playback bar timeout quicker, so it doesn't get in the way of your full screen experience.

Clearer to see programme tiles

We’ve made it easier to see programme tiles by adding some space between them.

Programme Synopsis in the Guide

Browsing the Guide just became even easier. Now when you focus on a programme we will expand the area to show you more useful information, like the programme synopsis and the length of the programme.

Programmes that are too short can now easily be seen when you focus on them.

We'll also call out if the programme has JUST STARTED, is ON NOW or is ENDING SOON to help when you're browsing in the Guide.
