We know that BIG TV’s SET TOP BOX have many problems like heating problem, hanging problem and software related problems in old model which company tested from December 2007 to August 2008 before launch and it was available for Reliance PCO offers and Reliance employee offer. They have second model which is new at the moment and hardly available to customers. But our source suggested that this new set top box will be come in market for all new customers from next month and slowly they will remove old set top box which creates many problems for BIG TV.
We have been checked the new set top box which looks far better then older set top box model and this SET TOP BOX is very small compared to older ones and took less space too. It has 9 buttons on front panel including Power, Volume, Channel, Smart Card slot, CI slot for cam and other indicators. Rear panel have 8 buttons which are USB, Component, RF Out and others. Most unique feature of this set top box is 2 new features which are Dolby SPDIF and DJ Jack which are not available in older set top box.
However this SET TOP BOX is very new so we should wait for response from customer about it function and how it looks different then older once. It has different OTA Software and it have different interface. You can check the image:
This SET TOP BOX have been tested in few weeks ago but as we knows Reliance BIG TV’s software is one of the worst among all Direct To Home service provider and also channel changing and going to menu is very slow and it made them worst software SET TOP BOX. New SET TOP BOX is working good so far but we knows Reliance BIG TV is now going to updates their next firmware which carry 2 new interactive services iNews and iSports. After new updates, we have to check the new SET TOP BOX and it speed.
Many people facing problems in older SET TOP BOX and their firmware, company’s technical team inform us that this new SET TOP BOX will solve problems and they are also coming with DVR and HDTV enable SET TOP BOX in next few months. So we are hoping best results from model no. 2. New customers can get new SET TOP BOX from Diwali.
