New Explora software updates

Re: New software update(s) - Oct / Nov '18

I see I also received the update but have not had a chance to look at anything.


Was the "Just Added" not always there?

I picked something random for testing CU+ further - Ep. 48 of The Throne which aired over a week ago - it plays fine.

Then tried my already downloaded CU+ title - it plays fine.

(All CU+ in SD unless otherwise mentioned.)


Conclusion - this new blank bug may not be related to the new software, may possibly be a new CU department issue.

Showmax sections working quicker again now.


Nothing else noticed so far, but new fixes won't be ready that quickly.

New Explora software updates

Spam moderator destroyed my first thread! Here we go again...


Ok, have just got the L95 (/2) software update on my Explora 1.

Currently also known as "BOREAS-bc5a90" earlier in that line, but that part may not change for a future update.


[To stop the spam moderator - please ignore]


  • "Just Added" is back (blue DStv button).
  • Entering CU / CU+ still won't load at times.
  • My CU+ History has been reset yet again, but the one download I had did survive.
  • CU / CU+ pages refresh a bit faster now.
  • "TV Shows You're Watching" still won't work with CU+ titles watched.
  • New problem - I tried downloading Masterchef E12 and The Orville E12, both in SD - both gave me a blank screen with no sound (after the usual and very long self-promoting intro BS which works fine as usual of course).

Please would others try downloading a new CU+ title when they get the update, and let us know if it plays ok or not.

(Or maybe they'll dump this update now.)


So, disappointing, but given the larger messy picture I'm hoping unseen functionality will be largely back to normal. Here's hoping...
