Service Update Saorview Connect recording software - beta test release

Saorview Connect recording software - beta test release

25 February 2019

We have been working with the software developers to get our recording software upgrade ready for release to all Saorview Connect users.

As part of this process, we want to roll out a new beta* version of the recording software to a larger group of Saorview Connect users than that in the original test. This is so that we can gather information on customer experience of use of the software in their homes.

Please note that you will need an aerial, and an internet connection - either wired or wi-fi. If connecting to a satellite dish, two satellite connections available to the box will be needed. You will also need to connect an external USB hard drive to the box once the beta software is downloaded and the box has completed installation.

If you wish to participate in this public test, please email [email protected] in the first instance with your contact details. We will select a number of respondents to participate in the beta test group and follow up with details of how to participate.

 

*Beta testing is a common means of testing new software or product upgrades among a selected group of users. It is commonly used by mobile phone and computer manufacturers for final testing of a new software release before it goes live to all customers. Beta software may carry some minor bugs or glitches but is generally complete. If for any reason you wish to return to the previous version of software, you can email us with the details and we can reverse the change.
