"You can register your interest to join..."

 

What we all want is a serviceable product, not be used as guinea pigs while VM play around (yet again) with something that should have been tested fully before release!

 

Simple question: When will this latest fix be rolled out to all usrs - not just the guinea pigs?

 

Simple answer;  { VM to complete }

Re: is there a new update for the superhub

Hi TC-25,

 

We tested the firmware ourselves before allowing people to have the option of trialling the firmware.

 

The benefit of this is that while we could test 20 scenarios for example, offering this as a trial allows us to test hundreds of scenarios.

 

This then allows a much faster firmware update while being able to pick up any bugs that we may have missed.

 

No one is forced to be part of the trial but many people requested to be part of the trial before it had even begun.

 

We will only advise of a release date after the firmware trial is completed and when we are confident that the date will be accurate.

I work for Virgin Media but my opinions are my Own

In that case you should have seen the problems!

"We will only advise of a release date after the firmware trial is completed and when we are confident that the date will be accurate"

As these faults are like painting the Forth Bridge - never ending - trials will go one forever. Bring back Telewest!!!

if its a problem - put the super hub into modem mode and add your own router - all the firmware updates in the world will not matter then - and its debatable if they will solve the super hub problems anyway

many have no problem with the old firmware - hopefully R37 will not break that

Re: is there a new update for the superhub

R37 firmware is better I think then r36 firmware because my superhub always rebooted everyday
