What I haven’t heard anything from mine
Unfortunately there’s no volume control for the fan!!
I got one of these now TV boxes before Xmas if I buy this as a second can I keep the code and use the 3, months entertainment when my current one runs out?

Yes
good price. i've never really used the box i got though as they stopped sideloading on it
Good deal for me as it was effectively £14.99 in-store, using the £10 One4All card I purchased during the Amex-Post Office £5 off £10 spend offer a few weeks ago. Box also came with a £5.49 Sky Store voucher for use on rental or purchase (despite it only mentioning rental) which when redeemed was added to my existing credit balance (surplus left from earlier 'free' vouchers).
Is this the new box??
Anyone know of any sports offers circulating atm?
I managed to get one last week from b and m for 15 with 3 month entertainment pass
720p maximum and with a download speed of 3mps, waste of money.

Yes you can. Top up when you have less than 30 days left to go. Believe codes are on sale on eBay.

Earlier ones are a lot louder than the latest ones I've found, they probably have modified the cooling or using a cooler chip now.

Yeah, I’m gonna stick with the old version. Never watch freeview on it anyway and appalled by the shocking customer service of NOW. Ordered a replacement unit a few weeks back. Got delivered covered in red wine so I refused collection. Been fighting with them to get a replacement ever since.

You more of a whìte wine person?
Really nice piece of kit and very good value with 1080p and the Entertainment pass thrown in
Thanx op just reserved mine, it is a shame that they have binned the usb and micro sd card ports on the old box, i wonder if there's a way to get this functionality back? Anyone know??
Was in John Lewis in Southampton on Friday and they had the same deal but give you a two year guarantee.Shame its not 3 months movies.
I found poor video quality, I have full hd tv connected with 1080p in now tv box.
Anyone found same problem? Anyone know how to adjust to the perfect video quality?
Thanks

Video quality when streaming is down to your connection, absolutely nothing wrong with the video quality on either of mine.

Freeview or streaming? Streaming is down to your connection but Freeview should be good, try changing settings in settings as well as swapping HDMI ports /leads. Can't fault the picture from mine.

If you have a decent speed internet you should see a good picture, it only streams at 720p but it uses high bitrates when there's a solid connection. If the picture looks low resolution then you've connection issues too.
Thanx op got mine now, it is a shame that they have binned the usb and micro sd card ports on the old box, i wonder if there's a way to get this functionality back? And have they biined the ports on this smart box as well ? Haven't had time to check yet.Anyone know??

The forums there are useless tbh, nowtv moderators just don't help or won't help. So i thought it may be worth asking here.

There may have been a way of using the USB or using Plex before last March using developer mode but a now TV update removed the developer mode on Now TV boxes. Below is a link to the forum post discussing the removal of developer mode
community.nowtv.com/t5/…982


A idea has been put forward to put Roku media Player on Now Tv boxes in the following post
community.nowtv.com/t5/…018
Its a good thing that the nowtv forum is asking for the Roku mp to be put on the nowtv boxes, this would defo get us all the usb/msd card ports reanabled for use as intended.

If this doesn't happen, does anyone know if there's a possibility of using them another way??
Surely someone tech savy would maybe know a way....
These subs; the movies, entertainment, weekly sports etc - is any of this in HD?
