I've noticed our gen1 vodafone tv box has had an update load on it, other than the new apps anyone care to elebroate as to what else has changed?

Hi @mrrosh Yes. The set top box you can now purchase in stores can be used on any ISP. Please ensure you use it on a plan that has 'unlimited' data.

Don't quote me but I wouldn't think so, the 1st gen boxes are tied to a Vodafone broadband contract as far as I know. If you switched to another ISP you would need to give the boxes back I would think.

Both Gen1 and Gen2 boxes will work on any ISP in NZ. However you must pay for your Gen1 service as an add-on to a Vodafone broadband plan currently: effectively meaning that you wouldn't run Gen1 on another broadband provider (unless it's been gifted to you by a Vodafone broadband customer).

I'm trying to get the gen 1 working on a diff iSp, but doesn't seem to work.
Do i need to take it back into a home network that has vodafone internet before it will get an updated firmware?
