Received my Superhub 3.0 and its Black ? ...

Hi all,

I got the superhub 3.0 delivered last week and I have noticed its black and not white.

After checking Google I have noticed that these all seem to be white.

Is black the new model ?

Also the power brick and power cable is white.

 

ps, I am not moaning about it not being white as I would want black anyway to match TV unit etc, Just strange I cannot see any online.

All Hub 3 models are identical internally. The black one is a new casing designed to match the other main VM product - the TIVO box, especially the new V6 version coming soon. As stocks of the white one are used up area by area the black one replaces it.

You can rest assured that it will work just as badly as the white ones.    Smiley Wink

Thanks for the update. Well I have a 2ac before this and the wireless from the 3.0 is now reaching areas the prev hub couldn't so I am happy with it.

Oh well, that's good news.  I wonder if these new issues have already been flashed with the software update that was supposed to cure most of the issues the earlier ones are / were having e.g. regular disconnects.

He'll have 9.1.88T, which is the latest public firmware. It fixes most of the issues (except the slow GUI login), which is why he'll be likely to be happy with it.

Since he mentions the wifi, he's most likely running in router mode, which means he has zero chance of experiencing the flapping issue.

The black one would look much better then the current white one sat between my SH2AC and Hitron CGNv4

Don't put your Hitron on the end then! Smiley Tongue I have mine on the floor so there's no colour clash. Smiley Very Happy The actual reason for that was lack of power sockets on that side of the room.. Smiley Sad
