Hi Coil.

 

Thanks for your reply.

I have been in contact with Vodafone Technical assistance and had it explained to me that the original T Box or model i have is in fact being Phased out... Over the past few months Vodafone have been totally de-activating them and making them pretty much useless.

I asked the Question why they didnt just disable the Streaming capabilities and leave the STB as a standalone Terrestrial Freeview box - but was given the standard reply.

 

So to the Wheelie bin they go.... With 500gb Harddrive.

 

Cheers

The old T-Boxes were never used as terrestrial freeview boxes! They ran via DVB-C on the HFC Network and / or via UFB.

 

Never worked via terrestrial TV service.

When I was in the Red House we had the grand idea to issue them as IPTV boxes when Fibre was launched.. Terrible idea.. Performance was shocking. Looked a lot better than Satellite still.
