Freebox Mini 4K: a first update without big effects

Image 1: Freebox Mini 4K: a first update without big effects

Just released, the Freebox Mini 4K already sees its first update arriving online. The new housing of Free is indeed not free from defects, and the operator seems to have already started to make corrections.

This first update, however, brings only very minor changes to the new Freebox, and they relate for example to the remote control. A patch would therefore correct what Free describes as “a disconnection problem in a disturbed radio environment”. In addition to the remote control, the TV box of the Freebox Mini 4K, and more particularly its media explorer, is also provided with an invisible patch on the surface, but which is supposed to improve compatibility with uPnP servers. As always, simply restart the Freebox for the update to install automatically.

Changes that should therefore go rather unnoticed, given the many problems encountered with this new Freebox, both in our tests and in some of the internet users who ordered it. Whether it’s a sometimes messy interface or performance issues, there is still a lot of work to get this new box out of the bug pool in which it is located.
