New iQ3 software
The second iQ3 software update (version 18.104.22.168) is available for you to download to your USB now. It's important that you use this updated software on every iQ3 install you perform from Wed 29 July.
This software update will see an overall improved stability to the iQ3. This includes:
· Simpler way to connect to WiFi
o There’s now a one push option called WPS to connect to your WiFi
o Available for WPS enabled routers.
· Accurate results when running the WiFi speed test
· Eliminated the need for an adapter for HDMI ARC and CEC devices
· Better recording functionality
o Recordings fail due to ‘No Signal’ errors
o Clashes occur when recording shows, especially when using Series Link
o Issues occur with deleting recordings.
· iQ3 will manage disk space better
o When the iQ3 hard drive fills up, it will automatically delete recordings
o Like the iQ2, customers can Keep recordings they don’t want deleted
o To delete their own recordings when their hard drive is full, customers can switch their disk management settings from Auto to Manual.
· Easier way to identify previously viewed recorded content
o The iQ3 will now indicate previously watched recordings in a darker font and background
o This will occur when the customer has watched the recording in full (as in right to the very end)
o Available in Library and Episodic view.
· The iQ3 is less likely to get stuck in standby.
