Image 1: Freebox: the two updated boxes

The two boxes of the Freebox Revolution were updated yesterday. The Player goes to version 1.2.3 and the Server in 1.1.7.

The new firmware Server does not add functionality. It just fixes bugs such as the detection of the call duration on DECT phones or a spelling error on the mention “Temporarily locked access” that the Player can display.

The Player benefits from a little more innovation with the addition of links to accounts Youtube and Dailymotion, a page with network information and support for playlists and favorites. In addition, numerous improvements and corrections have been made, the list of which follows below.

Remember that to be able to benefit from these updates, the user must restart his devices. On the Player, go to the settings menu on the TV and select “Restart”. For the Server, everything takes place on its small monochrome screen. Go to the “Menu”, then “System” and finally “Restart”.
